The Source, a venue in Carlisle, has helped to organise the festival, which will take place in Brampton in August.

"This will usually take place at around midnight. People will be invited to come up to the bonfire and toast marshmallows.

"We also have other forms of entertainment for the children as well, like bouncy castles, a meet and greet with superheroes amongst other things.

"There will also be various food and craft stalls dotted around the festival where people can enjoy and buy uniquely crafted goods.
