This event has been and gone.

Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

Winterlight returns! Hollins Mill Lane magically transforms into an illuminated street festival bursting with light and sound. Dance, drink, feast and be merry! This festival is about you so please join us in lighting up the street by wearing illuminated costumes, hats, prams, jackets, umbrellas, and faces. Think flashing masquerade masks, shadow theatre costumes, LED fancy dress and glittering fairy tales. We look forward to seeing you all in your fancy attire!

Feeling creative? Join us at one of our craft workshops ahead of the festival and make a giant creation which will feature at the event.

Donations will be taken on the day towards The Fire and Water Project at Hollins Mill Lane. An ambitious project to deliver social, cultural and economic change to Sowerby Bridge. The aim is to create a purpose built venue to provide community training and to house arts, music and cultural events as well as providing space for other community activities. Without Fire and Water this event would not exist.

Want to go on a little later? There is an aftershow taking place at The Blind Pig featuring The Sequels starting at 21:00.

A special THANK YOU to our sponsors who have been so generous with their contributions. Without them this event simply could not happen.


We are still in need of sponsorship. To become a sponsor of this event or future projects please get in touch with us at

See you there!
