The Team

The committee

In February 2013, the traditional Torchlight Committee was disbanded and replaced with the Torchlight Management Team. The main difference being that all Torchlight Team members have publicly committed to taking responsibility for one or more critical functions.

All of our team are volunteers who work tirelessly all year round to put on this historic event, with the help of numerous other businesses and invividuals who offer support in kind as well as their time and expertise. We are currently looking for capable people to help in a number of roles. If you think you can help please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
