The award-winning Festival of Sky returned to Cleethorpes over the weekend with the spellbinding outdoor performance The Twilight Hour.

The show opened to a packed audience of 4,000 people at Cleethorpes Meridian Showground on Friday, September 24 before running again the following day. It is a localised adaptation of The Witching Hour by Periplum.

The Twilight Hour is performed by international performance company Periplum and tells the stories of myths and legends from the local area. It is the story of nine spirits created from magical folklore and heritage in Cleethorpes.
