The Puppet Pageant:  March of the Unsung Women

The Puppet Pageant: March of the Unsung Women

Details

The Pageant will start from the Civic Centre, move up Scotch Street and around the pedestrian centre of the city towards the John Steel Statue. After circling the Market Cross it will end outside the Old Town Hall with a speech by the Mayor of Carlisle.

To mark the 100-year anniversary of the Representation of the People Act, Carlisle City Council has commissioned Prism Arts to work with schools, community groups and young people to create a pageant procession that celebrates women from Roman Carlisle to1970s, across a range of professions. Artists will work with groups to create ten life size puppets of women that led significant lives but were not recognised in their lifetimes. More than 100 people will take part in the parade this year processing their work alongside our significant women.
