The theme of Torchlight 2017 is ‘Fairy Tales’. We hope this theme will allow imaginations to run wild as both children and adults alike have favourite stories and films which they share together.
For the first time this year the Torchlight Organising Group are hosting a series of workshops in the build up to Torchlight to help get everyone’s creative juices flowing. The workshops will be held in The Westmorland Shopping Centre and provide an opportunity for young people to make their own artwork for Torchlight, with a team of voluntary artists. News on the workshop dates will be announced on the Torchlight Facebook Page.
Please note that we don’t have a huge budget nor many volunteers, so the Torchlight Team is unlikely to be able to provide funding for Carnival Groups from outside the immediate area. Our priority will be to support local organisations.
