This is an inclusive community event and we welcome participation. It takes a lot of people to make an event like this successful, so we need your help. Will you dip your toe in or throw yourself in at the deep end? Have a look and see what would suit you.
TOTALLY COMMITTED! LOVING IT AND WANTING TO BE INVOLVED?
There are some key roles that we need help with. Most of the main characters have been cast, but there are still a few gaps. All roles are non-speaking parts, but some acting is required. Let us know if you would like to step up! These folks will be in the thick of it, they will be choreographed and rehearsed and will need to be able to commit to the dress rehearsal the evening before the event.
Get involved schedule:
1st May Friday
2nd May Saturday Day of Event

ONLY ON THE DAY
Not sure whether you’ll be able to make it – but will decide nearer the time? You can get dressed up and join in one of the torchlight processions and take part in the performance on the shore.
Declare your allegiance (just choose summer or winter), dress to impress and collect your torch in Peel on the day. At that point you will be given full instructions about where and when to meet.
You will need to be at your designated starting point, unlit torch at the ready either on the lower slopes of Peel Hill (summer), or at the Creg Malin Car Park (winter) for 8.30pm. Following a briefing from our fire marshals , torches will then be lit and the processions will begin around 9pm. You will process to the performance area on the shore where you will stay until the event finishes at 10pm with fireworks.
Legally we are only insured for adults aged 16 or over to carry a fire torch. Under 16’s are welcome in the procession if accompanied by an adult.
The torches will be on sale (£5) in Peel d the day. When buying your fire torch you will be required to sign a disclaimer form.
All profits from the sale of torches will go to our nominated charity (tbc).
