Skylight’s new outdoor circus show, Spark! is inspired by the finite energy of the universe. Funded by Arts Council England, the show brings together Skylight’s professional performers, our regular members and community participants to create a stunning spectacle. 

The show starts with a spectacular community parade, created with Hebden Bridge’s Handmade Parade. Event-goers will wind their way around beautiful Falinge park as the parade passes circus performers on route to a grand finale of incredible aerial and circus skills in the picturesque Victorian Courtyard.  Following on from last year’s successful Picnic In The Park, this will be a fun filled day for the whole family to enjoy. 

Rochdale’s Cartwheel Arts will be providing a free arts and craft workshop for children. More activities are planned to make this a truly memorable free family day out. This event is a partnership with Vintage Worx, the community development trust which manages Falinge Park.
