New date set for lights event
A new date has been set for the lights event which was cancelled at the end of last year. The ReKINdle lights festival will now take place (weather permitting) on Sunday 20 February, from 5pm -7pm at Amble’s Little Shore.
The event will feature hundreds of colourful flags and banners around the pier and promenade, with light projections, and an original soundscape featuring Harbour Lights Choir and voices of local children singing a specially commissioned song, ‘A song for Amble’. As darkness falls, look out for the kayakers and their fabulous phoenix.
A spokesperson for Amble Events Committee said, “We hope everyone will come down to the Little Shore as dusk falls and enjoy the spectacle. So much work by so many people has gone into bringing this event to fruition and we’ve all got our fingers crossed the weather behaves itself this time.”
People are encouraged to dress up in their finest, shiniest, sparkliest gear and ‘promendade and pose around the pier’.
There will be a selfie stall and fun from time travelling photographers Professor Weft and Miss Warp.
Organisers Dry Water Arts and Amble Events Committee had to reschedule the event originally planned for late November, after bad weather meant the whole thing had to be cancelled.
Call out for volunteers: The organisers are looking to recruit volunteer marshals and riggers.
