SHADOWS will dance along The Gill in Ulverston tonight as hundreds of candles, fire-bowls and up-cycled cans cut with stars are lit for the town's fifth candlelit walk.

Folk musicians will lead off the procession at 6.30pm and an eerie glow is expected to be cast by hundreds of candles and lights.

Last year's event was hit by torrential rain but volunteers say they have been working on 'weatherproofing' the event.
