Neepie Lantern Competition 2021

Neepie Lantern Competition 2021

Get your knives and spoons (yes spoons!) ready, and get howking. When you’ve carved your masterpiece send a pic of your entry to elphinstone@abdn.ac.uk including your full name and postal address to reach us by 1 November 2021.

Rules are to have a lit lantern with a lid and string.

The idea is to encourage the tradition of neep lanterns for Halloween in the North-East. Neeps have lost popularity since the introduction of the pumpkin, which twenty years ago was not widely available in the North-East.

So get howking and have fun reclaiming a North-East childhood Halloween neep lantern tradition and revive it for future generations.

Prizes for the competition include a first prize of The College Boy CD of local songs and rhymes by Stanley Robertson, plus The Living Doric, edited by Cuthbert Graham. Two runners up will receive prizes of The Living Doric.
