Having reached out to Russia during the Handmade Parade this Summer, now artists from Czechoslovakia join in the fun as the Lamplighter Festival gears up for its big day in Todmorden on November 19.

Dorota Krátká and Adam Krátký from Roztoky who both teach drama and art will lead workshops (Nov 8, 10, 15, 17, 6-8pm and Nov 13, noon-6pm) to create a costumed illuminated ensemble which will perform in the town, parade and festival finale.

You can also join dancer Gil Burns for the Women’s Lamplighter Dance Ensemble classes and dance to the Handmade Samba Band at the festival. Full details of workshops and times at or on 01422 844154.
