We regret to announce that the Mossley Light Festival 2018 will not be going ahead this year. Festival and Parade Producers Global Grooves suffered a devastating fire in March 2018 and all of the large structures that were created for the previous events were destroyed.
Due to limited capacity while recovering from this fire they’ve taken the difficult decision to take a step back from producing the parade at this year’s switch on event. BUT DON’T WORRY!
There are loads of exciting things happening this year as part of our Town Christmas Light Switch on.
A Christmas Switch-On event and mini lantern parade will still be going ahead, organised by Mossley Town Council, Marvellous Mossley, and in collaboration with many of the wonderful artists that helped to create Mossley Light Festival 2017 & 2016. There will be an open Lantern workshop at Global Grooves’ venue The Vale on 13th November 2018 if you’d like to take part in this year’s event. Our fabulous artists will also be visiting schools and other community groups in Mossley to make lanterns for the mini parade.
The Switch-On will be taking place on 24th November 2018 on Mossley Market Ground. We wish Mossley Town Council and Marvellous Mossley every success in this years event and look forward to joining them again in 2019 for another Mossley Light Festival.
