‘FLYING CIRCUS!’ Saturday, October 13th 2018 The BikeLights team are now delighted to announce that our magical and much-loved illuminated bicycle-based parade for all the family will take place this year at 6.45pm on Saturday 13th October on the streets of Wadebridge. Now in our fifth year, as well as receiving hugely valued local support and beginning to establish some exciting new partnerships, BikeLights and Wadebridge Creative Hub are delighted to have gained Arts Council and FEAST funding to further develop the event’s artistic activity and reach as well as our community impact longer term. See our funders and sponsors page for more info on this! Meanwhile we are already planning our schools and community activity as well as our artist call-out, so keep checking this site and our Facebook and Twitter feeds for more info on things as we go. Posters and postcards will be on the way very soon once designer Jago Silver has worked his magic on our lovely theme, so look for those appearing in shops and schools in September… MORE SOON!
