Sowerby Bridge Winterlight Festival


This evening was the third annual Winterlight Festival in our home town of Sowerby Bridge. It sees the area around Hollins Mill Lane closed to cars and instead illuminated with moving pictures. Entertainment on the evening consisted of bands playing in what was the old fire station, and various street entertainers such as Granny Turismo (Google it).

This was the first time that we visited, having missed it in previous years. We hoped Lizzie would like it – she likes flashing lights – but she’s been under the weather this week so was asleep for most of it. As well as the light and sound show, there were plenty of pop up places to eat and drink, including Sowerby Bridge’s own Temujin restaurant.

It was good fun, with a great atmosphere. I reckon there were getting on for 1000 people there, which is great for a small town, especially on a Sunday. The dry weather almost certainly helped, as well as it being a free event (with donations gratefully received). I’m pretty sure we’ll be back next year, but in the meantime, my photos are on Flickr.
