What Can You Enter?

There are a range of ways you can enter Torchlight;

you can create a costume, dance, sing,

promote your organisation,

and help create a magical Torchlight Event.

All entries should be based on the theme…


Create with...

Recycled, Repurposed, Repaired, & Recreated


Come as...

Heroes, Legends, Characters, & Icons


Instead of walking around town on the Friday night,

you will parade and perform around Abbot Hall Park

on Staurday in the daylight!

Get creative with your entry, it will need to be on foot, pushed, or pedal powered. You could choose to simply walk around the ring or you might even prepare a dance or mini show as a mark of your entry.

How It Works...

Step One: Register

You need to register via the website and tell us a bit about your entry.

There are loads of workshops, master classes, and resources to help you get started, so check out the website to see what’s on!

Step Three: Get Making

Whether your making costumes, pushing a trolley or doing a dance, it’s time to get your creative groove on! All entries must be on foot, pushed, or pedal powered, there’s no long walk so costumes can be bigger than ever!

Step Four: Know Your Time Slot

We will get in touch to confirm your time slot in the Carnival Ring, where you can show off your amazing entries.

We can’t wait to see you all looking amazing and doing your thing!
