Skies Alight 2018 - An incredible success, thanks to our generous 2018 sponsors!

What an incredible evening we had at Skies Alight 2018 - our free fireworks extravaganza right here at the Mintbridge stadium. At least 5000 people joined us in the grounds to enjoy a spectacular musical display, designed to honour the fallen as we mark the Centenary years of WW1. We’re sure you all agree it was a superb display and a very moving experience.

Skies Alight 2018 was our second free fireworks event here at Mintbridge, laid on for the community with the generous support of our 2018 event sponsors - who made this event possible for our whole town to enjoy:

Kentdale Land Rover, Lakeland, Barclays, Kendal and Kendal South Westmorland Rotary Clubs, and Kendal Town Council.

We’d like to say a HUGE thank you to our sponsors, and to everyone who gave their time and effort to make this event such a heartwarming success. We can’t wait to start planning next year’s event and we hope to see you all there.

The Mintbridge/KRUFC Sewing Bee and Knit n Natter group would also like to express their gratitude to the Westmorland Agricultural Society for their invitation to contribute to the ‘Westmorland Remembers’ initiative and also for the loan of the magnificent poppy which adorned Mintbridge’s reception during the event. A worthwhile and moving experience as we honour the Centenary. Westmorland Remembers!
