LATEST NEWS: THE PARADE LEAVES SEEL PARK AT EARLIER TIME OF 6:30PM ON NOVEMBER 24TH, NOT 7PM

Bringing light to the heart of the community

We are delighted to announce the launch of Mossley Light Festival, a winter-time celebration that brings everyone from our beautiful, unique community together. A light festival is the perfect way to build on the popular lantern parades and step up to a more ambitious event, bringing in new elements and including even more people. We’re excited to announce the first festival will premiere new and unique work underpinned by a strong artistic vision and will be delivered by the town’s community. Our vision is to have an annual event that creates a new tradition of celebration for everyone to enjoy, and puts Mossley in the limelight as the Light Festival develops as a visitor destination.

Because light is able transform people and places we’ve chosen ‘Transformation’ as our 2016 theme.

We hope everyone will be involved:

  • Artists: Take a masterclass, shadow a professional, create a new piece of work for this premiere showcase or share your skills and lead a workshop.
  • Community groups: Produce an amazing light structure or create a new piece of work to show what you do best.
  • Families: Enjoy a creative session together and make a lantern to light the way in our fantastic parade.
  • Volunteers: You are much more than a high viz’ jacket, you are part of the Mossley Events Team; a skilled group who are crucial to the success of events in Mossley. We have designed a series of training days to build the skills for a community team. The excellent training from leaders in the field will educate and inspire and is definitely not to be missed by anyone who wants to support local delivery and develop their skills.
