‘Let it Shine’ The People’s Parade
Blackburn Festival of Light CIC
The project will encompass a summer workshop programme and a new celebratory summer parade. It will enable people to come together, have new experiences, develop practical skills, make new friendships and be part of a stronger more integrated community. By developing a team of volunteers, it will help to build confidence, tackle social isolation, creating advocates both for the festival and local communities.
