Sea of Freaks Torchlit Procession by Walk the Plank

Arts by the Sea Festival presents a fiery, torchlit parade and an unforgettable experience for opening night. 120 Festival Goers  will carry flame-lit torches through the centre of the town.

Led by critically acclaimed 90s rave and New Orleans outfit Mr Wilson’s Second Liners, and performers throwing sparks and flames up to 5 metres high in the air, this noisy procession presents a sight not to be missed. The procession will reach its finale at the Inferno, a stage-come-fireball spectacular near the beachfront.

However, Arts by the Sea festival needs YOU to help us make this happen. If you’re over 18 and would like to become a torchbearer, we’d love to hear from you.

To register as a torchbearer, please email arts.bournemouth@bournemouth.gov.uk.
