The Story Behind Lighting the Legend 2017

Inspired by the many buildings and venues in Ordsall, places we all use every day, 2017's  celebration featured the very streets we live on. We created some of Ordsall's most famous and not so famous landmarks. Visitors from far and wide come to see very famous buildings like Salford Lads Club and Ordsall Museum, but its also places like Lindsays shop and the churches and school buildings where lots of community life happens everyday. So this year we celebrated these unsung heroes in our community.

As usual, we brought this local story to life by talking to local people and sampling some of their memories as well as weaving some new tales of our own for our lantern installation at the end of the parade. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did making it! So come and join us next year on Friday 9th November 2018, starting at the Library, and walking many of Ordsall's loved streets, arriving in Ordsall Park for the lantern installation and firework show from the firey magicians at Walk the Plank.
