Tower of Light & Flaming Torch Procession

About Tower of Light & Flaming Torch Procession

Hull City Council and Walk the Plank, one of the UK’s leading outdoor arts companies, are delighted to be bringing this celebration of maritime heritage to Hull’s city centre during the early evening of Thursday 14 March 2024.

A flaming torch-lit procession featuring 500 community volunteers will make its way from Hull Minster to Hull Marina, where audiences will enjoy a spectacular performance of The Tower of Light – transforming Hull into a magical theatre of pyrotechnics, performance and music.

In 1998, the last of Britain’s many lighthouses was automated. The Tate (Liverpool) commissioned Walk the Plank to mark the departure of lighthouse keepers from their remote outposts around our coastline, and the show has toured internationally ever since.

The Tower of Light celebrates the Lighthouse, and the people who lived and worked in them: the Lighthouse Keepers who kept sailors safe for centuries. It is a beautifully choreographed piece of outdoor theatre, centred around a spectacular Lighthouse and its three hapless Lighthouse Keepers who keep the Tower animated with light, fire and stunning pyrotechnic effects.

The free event takes place from 6.45pm on Thursday 14 March, when the parade will leave Hull Minster before arriving at Hull Marina for the Tower of Light performance at 7.30pm. The event is expected to finish at approximately 8pm.

Further event details will be revealed soon!
