Local filmmaker helps tell the story of Edmund Hillary’s last adventure, in the film, Ocean to Sky

Lismore’s Lantern Parade has been given its marching orders to quit its headquarters of the past 12 years, an old factory in Orion Street.

The order was made by the real estate agent administering the sire.

As a result, the organisation is looking for a new home that can accommodate ‘up to 60 people’ working on projects at the height of its production period.

Event organiser Jyllie Jackson said it was disappointing that the organisation had to move, but that the existing building was not really up to standard and she hoped a new home could be found at an affordable rent.

She said the organisation was seeing the challenge in a positive light.

‘As one door closes, another opens and we’re choosing to look at it like that,’ she told APN Media.

Anyone with ideas or offers can contact the office on 6622 6333.
