Festival of Light 2011

Well despite the cancellation of the main Festival of Light show tonight we spent a very enjoyable five hours in Huddersfield eating, drinking, listening to live music, visiting the art market and watching street performances. Yes, it was disappointing that the main show couldn’t go ahead but it was great to see so much going off around the town, there was a real buzz eveywhere you went. My friends from further afield (Leeds and Barnsley) had a fantastic night and we will be back again tomorrow for the main show and then the carols and fireworks on Sunday.

Here are a few photos of what we saw and did tonight.
