•• Carlisle Puppet Pageant: March of the Unsung Women ••

1 September 2018

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

To mark the 100-year anniversary of the Representation of the People Act, Carlisle City Council have commissioned Prism Arts to work with school, community groups and young people to create a pageant procession that celebrates women from Roman Carlisle to 1970’s, across a range of professions.

Artists will work with groups to create 10 life size puppets of women that led significant lives but were not recognised in their lifetimes. Over 100 people will take part in the parade this year processing their work alongside our significant women. Information about our women and the community groups and school partners taking part, can be found on our website: www.prismarts.org.uk
