The Odyssey will return on Saturday, 11th March, in the beautiful setting of Glen Gardens, Filey, with an illuminated lantern trail for the next chapter of the Odyssey entitled ‘Here be Monsters!’

Everyone is invited to join the event for a gentle walk around the gardens, with plenty of opportunities for great selfies!

This chapter of the story shows some of the perils of Odysseus’ epic journey, as he and his crew encounter a series of weird and wonderful creatures from the deep.

Expect to see some of the characters from previous episodes and a number of creations that have never been seen before – Watch out for the Kraken and the Hydra!

It’s a perfect early evening entertainment for families to enjoy at their own pace. The kiosk will be open for refreshments at Glen Gardens Cafe during the evening, and free face painting and balloon modelling activities will take place on the night – please be aware that there may be a short wait during busy times.

The trail will be open between 5.00 pm – 8.00 pm, and an average visit takes between 15-30 minutes. Admission is free, and there’s no need to book!

Please note that there are no toilet facilities in Glen Gardens at the moment – the nearest facilities can be found next to the Evron Centre on John Street.

Animated Objects will also be running a free lantern-making drop-in session at Filey Library on Saturday 4th, March from 11.00 am – 1.00 pm for those with children who would like to make a lantern to bring along on the evening of the trail (It takes about 10 minutes to make a lantern). You will also be able to see the beautiful Survivor blanket on display there throughout the week leading up to the lantern trail from the earlier chapters of the Odyssey story, featuring a number of squares hand-crafted by local residents.

For businesses who would like to display a poster for this exciting event, please get in touch with the team at
