Fire Moon Dragon

Fire Moon Dragon
By: Shane Johnstone and Anna Read
At: Dalton Square

The Chinese Quarter and the Fire Moon Dragon commission has been created with the support of Lancaster University Confucius Institute.


The flight to China will explore themes of hope, home and identity. An impressive ‘Fire Moon Dragon’ created by artists Shane Johnstone and Anna Read, with the collaboration of the Chinese Communities in Lancaster and Morecambe, will subtly illuminate the square.


The Dragon will gently light the space with exquisite, authentic shadow silhouettes and generate an infusion of scents and fragrances. The entrances to the square will also be ringed by beautiful Chinese lanterns and music, Tai Chi, face-painting, calligraphy and lantern-making will enhance the Chinese theme.
