A Spectacular Circus Event in Falinge Park
By Steve Cooke
A dazzling carnival parade with incredible aerial and circus skills in the Victorian Garden at Falinge Park.
Skylight’s new outdoor circus show, Spark! is inspired by the finite energy of the universe, bringing together Skylight’s professional performers, their regular members and community participants to create a stunning spectacle.
The show starts with a spectacular community parade, created with Hebden Bridge’s Handmade Parade. Eventgoers will wind their way around beautiful Falinge Park as the parade passes circus performers on route to a grand finale in the picturesque Victorian Courtyard.
Rochdale’s Cartwheel Arts will be providing a free arts and craft workshop for children. More activities are planned to make this a truly memorable free family day out. This event is a partnership with Vintage Worx, the community development trust which manages Falinge Park.
Martine Bradford – Creative Director says, “We’re really pleased to be able to perform this show created especially for this beautiful outdoor setting. Afterwards there will be a chance for everyone to try their hand at circus skills. We hope to see you there!”
