Christmas-sea parade lights up the town
Thousands of people turned out to support Amble’s ever popular Torchlight Procession and Christmas lights switch-on. This year’s theme was Under the Sea. Community groups filled the street, piled aboard festive floats, carrying hand made lanterns and banners, and cheering as the colourful Christmas lights sparkled against the darkness.
Organisers of the parade were delighted at the turnout. “Thank you to all who took part, this has definitely been the biggest procession we’ve had, and we hope everyone had a great time,” said a spokesperson.
The WI sang carols under the tree, and after the procession, there were performances in the town square from young people’s dance group Dansformation, and tribal dancers Tribe Zuza.
