'The Ordsall Peacock'

Lighting the Legend History

Lighting the Legend began in 1994 as a celebration on bonfire night. It was set up by Ordsall Community Arts and Ordsall Hall to provide local people with a themed celebration. It's name was inspired by the legend that Guy Fawkes stayed at Ordsall Hall during the plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament, and even though its never been proven, the story has always fired our imaginations.

Every year around Bonfire night, we parade through the streets with lovingly hand-made lanterns and special feature lanterns and we light up the sky with fireworks.


Always inspired by local Ordsall life, there have been many themes over the years.......
