Wirksworth Arts Festival 2010

Wirksworth Arts Festival 2010 28th April 2010

Mantle has been appointed as the Wirksworth Festival Community
Event Facilitator, for the September 2010 festival. We will be producing a spectacular event, involving as many local people as possible.

The project will involve five different workshop programmes, working with local groups and individuals, all of which will all result in processions of different kinds.

On Sunday September 26th, the five processions will start from the outskirts of the town and meet in the centre, where we will have a dramatic celebration, involving fire, music and dance.
