Sparks in the Dark

Spring is nearly here! The birds are singing to each other, the daffs are nearly out, and everyone is finally over that cold they’ve had for the last 6 weeks.

But! Remember last November as the nights were drawing in? We had a great time chasing away the darkness with our lanterns and furnaces on Wincobank Hill as part of the Light up the Hill event.

Volunteer Film maker Martin Currie sent a group of young people off with cameras to record the event, and this is the result of their excellent camera work and Martin’s production skills.

Proof that without darkness there would be no light!

Light up the Hill is an amazing lantern lit night time procession up Wincobank Hill. The event combines darkness and light, trees and fire and music and drama to help bring the ancient history of Wincobank Hillfort to life.  It is free to visitors from near and far. Watch a video of Light up the Hill 2012 here:

Roots of Iron will be joining the fun by working with young people to make a film or animation based on themes of Wincobank Hill through time. The film will be shown along with the drama as part of the event. There will also be opportunities to join in with the drama, and, of course, make some lanterns. The first session will take place on Tuesday 30th September at Wincobank Chapel at 6pm till 8pm. The sessions are free, and open to young people aged 11 -25.
