About the event

  • Spirit, Dewsbury’s free annual street theatre show, is back for a seventh consecutive year and is one of the earliest Yorkshire Festival events.
Theater Tol's cycling inspired show Luce is sure to wow audiences young and old.

Gino Bartali and Fausto Coppi are two of Italy's greatest cyclists. They raced against each other in the 1940s and '50s in a series of highly charged encounters and their passion, dedication and sportsmanship united a nation. Italians today still argue over who was the best.

Relive the nail-biting moments in Luce by Belgian company Theater Tol, an amazing aerial show that suspends the performers high above the audience.

If you saw and were delighted by Theater Tol's Corazon de Angeles amazing show at the Festival of Light in 2010, you won't want to miss Spirit 2014.

Make a day of it with our two worksops at Dewsbury Market Place - 10am to 12:30pm and 1:30pm to 4pm: Create La Grande Famille willow sculptures which will be on display at Spirit and Hypervelocity in July and join the Faceless Company and their Les Bicyclettes workshops, a celebration of the bicycle and Yorkshire's sculptural heritage.
