After the overwhelming enthusiasm and participation which greeted last year's Valley of Lights events came an amazing new nocturnal experience: the Lamplighter Festival.
On November 23, after the Christmas lights were switched on, Todmorden – a town with an individual character and strong arts heritage on the Yorkshire / Lancashire border – was illuminated with performance, procession, pyrotechnics and passion!
The town was lit up with a lantern parade, spectacular fire performers, illuminated installations and sculptures, shadow puppets, glowing show bands and belly dancers, and night markets.
