The Dry Water Arts centre in Amble, Northumberland, is coordinating the project, which is bringing the community together even when they can’t meet up
As the winter nights get darker, the streets of Amble are shining bright.
Traditionally, a torchlit parade through the Northumberland town takes place every year, but with crowds unable to gather due to coronavirus, the Amble Events Committee had to come up with a new way to connect the community at Christmas.
Their bright idea has created a new tradition that is already proving hugely popular.
The Amble Festival of Light sees buildings across the town lit up in glorious colour, giving locals a chance to exercise their creativity.
They’ve decked their town with stained glass-style window displays, paper lanterns and handmade banners.
