Why I like being involved in Torchlight

“I have loved being a part of the torchlight creative crew in recent years. I’ve especially enjoyed designing and making large scale procession lanterns and costumes with local community groups. The buz of appreciation and delight of being cheered on around town o the night from the torchlight crowds is a lot of fun after all the hard work. Especially for some of your groups who are more often marginalised than celebrated.”
