Designing the Wythenshawe Parade Section

It’s all battle stations at Thingumajig Theatre! This year, we’ve been asked to lead a cluster of groups for the Manchester Day Parade. In previous years, we’ve worked with one group and then occasionally provided a giant puppet for an additional group. This year we’re working with a collection of about 12 groups which includes 4 dance groups and 2 bands!

It’s certainly bigger than just what Kathy and I can manage so we’ve brought in a few Handmade Parade artists to help us with costumes (Fran Sierrevogel), workshops (Ellie Chaney) and some of the big makes (Joanna McGlynn).

The theme for our section is “Garden City” as this is sometimes what Wythenshawe calls itself. Our message is that all sorts of beautiful things are blooming in Wythenshawe.

We’ve finished the design stage, done some serious materials  shopping and have made prototypes of the different things we’re planning to make. Now it’s heads down until June 2. (Then it’s heads down after that for the Handmade Parade on June 22!)
