Skipton Lantern Event 2019


The Woodland Trust 2019

The Brief

Following the success of the Lantern Events in 2017 and 2018, we were once again asked to perform in 2019 – the longest route so far. The neighbouring Skipton Castle had come on board with the event and were going to feature at the beginning of the route – could we create a new narrative which incorporated the castle and host the start of the parade?


What We Did

We wrote a new narrative featuring Lord and Lady Clifford – Lord Clifford being in disguise in the woods and included a new character – the Knight as well as the popular Poacher. Audiences interacted with the characters at key points on route before catching a glimpse of the mythical enchanted tree.


The Result

The event was a sell-out with visitors travelling from as far away as Salford to experience the woods after dark!

“I have to say we have had some fantastic feedback so far and I was over the moon when we sold out of the tickets by Thursday morning. We had to turn quite a few people away for Halloween itself – but a good problem to have!”
