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.

While the local election campaigns around Salford are pretty mild at the moment, in the Claremont ward it's all kicking off, with the LibDem candidate, Stef Lorenz, accusing Labour Party supporters of 'bullying', and the authorities of complicity.

Stef has been blocked from putting up posters in the local Height Library for a jumble sale and art auction in aid of restoring the old Height Youth Club, been forced to stand down as chair of that campaign and has been met with a volley of political abuse on social media. What's going on?
