Putting fire in the 2017 Slaithwaite Moonraking finale!

Children at Wilberlee, Wellouse and Clough Head School have been busy making these willow cogs with paBOOM to be part of the Finale. Dave Chadwick, artistic director of the company is creating an illuminated set-piece especially commissioned by the Festival, to make the Finale mechanically magical. Can’t wait!

Young People from Walpole, Crosland Moor will be creating another amazing set piece lantern with Dave Young of Rag and Bone and Alan Scully from Be More Outdoors.

First workshops start on Saturday 11th February on the estate. Plans are in place and we suspect it might breathe FIRE!
