Imbolc Fire Festival
Park at the railway station and meet at the goods yard.
The parade sets off at 19.00 so please meet at 18.30 to get ourselves organised. There might be time for a little dance before we set off but the main bit is a parade to the fire festival site.
We are taking the 'Osses and each one has a nominated person to do up the Oss in ivy and greenery.
We'll parade with music around the Osses and maybe a bit of dancing.
Then watch the fire dancing at tunnel end, informal walk back to Marsden.
