Flamborough Prepares for Fire Festival

Published by Jon Burke at 8:02am 31st December 2019.

Flamborough's getting ready to host its New Year's Eve Fire Festival.

The Festival is a celebration of Flamborough’s Viking heritage, including the burning of a Viking Longship, Torchlight Procession and a Fireworks Spectacular at midnight.

The burning of the Festival’s Viking Longship is just one of the amazing attractions to this year’s Festival with others being the Flamborough Fireballs, Invasion by the Great Viking God Thor!, Flaming Torches and a Torchlight Procession, of 2,000 torches in which everyone can take part.

With the event now in its fifth year, it has attracted more than 15,000 visitors from all over the country, who love the spirit of the occasion and the Festival atmosphere.

Entry is free for children under 12 and adults in Viking costume.

Organiser Jane Emmerson has been speaking to Yorkshire Coast Radio's Matthew Pells..
