WHY IS THERE A FLAMING SKIRT FESTIVAL?
Well, where is the Olympic Torch visiting? Not AMBER VALLEY in Derbyshire where I live! The official Olympic Torch relay is skirting round us rather than visiting any places in our borough.
So in protest, I’m creating FLAMING SKIRT, an alternative festival to shine a BEACON of LIGHT on our invisibility- a day of carrying the BEACON of LIGHT to different locations for creative events devised by artists for YOU. There might be competitions, collaborative constructions or demolitions. There might be tea and cakes too, and maybe prizes... who knows? There will certainly be FUN!
WHEN WILL IT HAPPEN?
FLAMING SKIRT will unfold in different locations round AMBER VALLEY on SATURDAY 30 JUNE (when the other torch is avoiding us).
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
I need money to make this a really spectacular event. It’s important to pay all the artists for their ingenuity and expenses, and to transport the BEACON OF LIGHT to each event location. So come on, let's fly this festival together.
