Once again we are bringing art workshops inspired by deaf and disabled people’s history to the Canterbury Pageant.
We are pleased to be working with Sally Booth and Fae Kilburn in addition to Christopher Sacre, who is returning to us for a repeat performance.
The second annual Canterbury Medieval Pageant on Saturday 8th July is going to be a highlight of this summer in Canterbury!
Commemorating Henry II’s pilgrimage to the tomb of Thomas Becket in 1174, accompanied by his Queen, Eleanor of Aquitaine, the Parade features characters from history as well as local children in medieval dress and starts near the Westgate Towers at 11am, ending around 12.30pm. With music, drama and pageantry it is a ‘must see’ event.
But that’s not all: between noon and 5pm, various locations in the city are part of the Medieval Family Trail. Designed around children and their parents, the Westgate Towers, the Beaney, the Canterbury Tales, Conquest House, Whitefriars and others will host an exciting range of activities.
Collect your Family Trail Leaflet from The Beaney and many other locations around Canterbury. When you visit any of the places featured in the Family Trail on Saturday 8th July, have the leaflet ‘stamped’. Collect at least 5 stamps and receive a FREE giant chocolate coin at the Cathedral Shop on Burgate.
