Garden City

Thingumajig Theatre was asked to create a parade section with a cluster of community groups from the Wythenshawe neighbourhood of Manchester for the 2013 Manchester Day Parade.

Kathy and Andrew with the help of Fran Sierrevogel, Ellie Chaney, Joanna McGlynn and Kerith Ogden worked with about 12 groups to make costumes and a few giant puppets around the theme of “Garden City”, which is what Wythenshawe is sometimes called.

We also brought in our friends with Handmade Samba Band and Peace Artistes to give us something to dance to down the street.

In the end, we had about 250 people in our section–apparently the largest section of the parade!
