Do you have experience as an artist/maker and an interest in developing your skills in outdoor performance?

Stories that have lurked in the darkness are now coming to light. Let’s start at the beginning, way, way back in the murky mists of time when beasts and monsters roamed the Orme. Word is about that the beasts and monsters are out, lurking and roaming our streets, the story of the Orme begins...

Otherworldly creatures, fire wielding Vikings, a Victorian circus freakshow, large scale puppet and music all illuminated with fire and light take to the streets for Llandudno’s first Winter Light Procession.

Join our fiery entourage and delight the people of Llandudno and its visitors.

Work with Artist Rob Hill to create some mystical monster capes for our participant performers to wear in the Procession.
