Marsden fire festival

This is where we are going tonight. Imbolc is a pagan festival marking St Brigid’s Day and the end of winter ; There is a procession, dance performances, stilt walking, lanterns, pyrotechnics and, of course, fire! Jack Frost and the Green Man battle for supremacy in a mummers play symbolising the triumph of spring over winter. Should be exciting.
