Lighting The Legend, the Ordsall bonfire night spectacular, hits its 20th anniversary this year, with a full on show and firework display at Ordsall Hall.

The evening begins at 6:30pm with a lantern parade to the Hall from the Ordsall Community Arts base at the Neighbourhood Building on Robert Hall Street. It arrives at the Hall at around 7pm for a family friendly show by Pif-Paf.

Last year 1500 people packed the grounds of Ordsall Hall to see the show, which charted the 700 year old history of the Tudor mansion where, legend has it, Guy Fawkes' plot was hatched. There were giant puppets, huge animal lanterns and performances from local arts groups (click here for details)

This year The Clock Strikes 20 Theatre Show promises to be even more spectacular, if that's possible. As usual, they are keeping the content under wraps.

The evening finishes at 7:30pm with a firework show by Walk The Plank which will be viewed from the Ordsall Hall grounds

"We're really excited to be celebrating twenty years of this celebration in Ordsall, no-one can quite believe that its twenty years already!" says Gail Skelly from Ordsall Community Arts "Everyone's so proud of it. We're organising an exhibition of photographs, and a competition for the best image - drawing, painting or photograph - of the night to mark the occasion."

Guy Fawkes was never at Ordsall Hall, he did not plot anything there as he was never there, there is no legend, it is well known to be a fiction work. Him being there was the plot of a fictional novel.

PEPPA PIG COMMUNISM GRAFFITI GOES SUBVERSIVE IN SALFORD

Star date: 18th July 2018

'COMMUNISM IS FOR THE CHILDREN' SAYS SUBVERSIVE PEPPA PIG

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
