Carlisle Set To Light Up With A Stunning Firework Display
Carlisle is set to shine during a magical free Lakes Alive event including a torchlight procession designed to celebrate the once in a lifetime illumination of Hadrian’s Wall on Saturday 13 March 2010. Hundreds of people are being invited to arm themselves with flaming torches and march through the streets of the Border City for the Welcoming the Light event.
The Welcoming of the Light event will culminate when the line of light running along Hadrian’s Wall reaches Carlisle, followed by an exciting fireworks finale. Welcoming the Light is being organised by Lakes Alive, in association with Carlisle Renaissance and Carlisle Tourism Partnership. Marie Whitehead, Director of Carlisle Tourism Partnership, said: “We are creating a city-centre event that everyone can take part in, which will help build momentum towards the light finally arriving in Carlisle as part of the Illuminating Hadrian’s Wall spectacle. With the support of Lakes Alive, we’ll be laying on a range of additional entertainment like music, dance, performance, food and fireworks to give people another reason to experience this once-in-a-lifetime occasion, as well as them taking part by carrying a torch as part of the procession.
