Willington Town Green, DL15 0DT, Saturday, 5th October 2019
The weather was kind and the people came to OUR WILLINGTON, an exciting event we’ve been working on with Lonely Tower Film and Media. Using the voices of people who call Willington home, the unique sound and light installation explored the history, heritage, hopes and dreams of the community.
The light and sound show was followed by a stirring perfomance by a community choir made up of local people singing original, locally written songs about County Durham, and a magical community lantern parade involving children from all five local primary schools. The fantastic, high-energy drummers, Runaway Samba, with their rousing beat, lead the community procession across the green to a blazing bonfire.
