Work With Us

We can only run because of the help our community give us. We give a huge thanks to our amazing sponsors and volunteers who actually bring the plans to life on the night. That’s over 100 people working together to bring this party to town. This event is truly a collective working together. 

We want your feedback, we want your views and we love the fact you’re talking about how to make it better, because rest assured, we will.

The organisers of this event are called the Tide of Light Community Group and are made up of people from your community. We are non-profit and all volunteer our time. The Community Group organises all the logistics for the event. The whole event is paid for by revenue secured by the group through fundraising and sponsorship. 

You will probably know at least one of the Community Group because they are at the heart of your community.

In no particular order they are;
