Saltburn Valley prepares for Pageant of Light

Saltburn Valley has begun preparations to celebrate the end of British Summer Time with a spectacular Pageant of Light on Sunday, October 29. The first in a series of workshops will take place at the Valley's Woodland Centre on Sunday, October 15, from noon til 3pm to make the pageant's illuminated banners. Countryside warden Neil Thirkell explained, "In conjunction with the Friends of the Valley, we're hoping to build on the success of last year's Pageant, which was a real spectacular, with over 600 people joining in the procession creating a wonderful atmosphere. We're planning to produce some banners for the procession with a 'minibeast' theme as part of the National Big Draw event, so come along and discover your creative side." There will be more workshops planned during the schools' half term holiday week, with a minibeasts theme, building up to the procession of music and light on Sunday, October 29, starting at 5.30pm from the Cat Nab car park to the Woodland Centre. The night’s entertainment is free, but a donations box will give proceeds to the Friends of the Valley.
Workshop times:
  • Tuesday, October 24, 10am-noon, 1pm-3pm: Making minibeast lanterns.
  • Wednesday, October 25, 1pm-3pm: Making percussion instruments.
  • Thursday, October 26, 1pm-3pm: Making a bee headdress. £1.
