Manchester Day Parade

On the 22nd of May Manchester enjoyed a day like no other in its calendar year. At the peak of summer Manchester’s residents flooded the streets of the city centre to watch the organisations and communities who call Manchester home celebrate their achievements and celebrate their home with spectators for miles around. The parade featured looming sculptures of trains and giant paper maché globes with a rainbows running round their edges. There were foam birds and wicker structures that towering above the spectators, and in the squares along the parade route there were musicians, artists and entertainers situated to entertain in the sun. The Circus House was proud to be a part of the celebrations, setting up camp for the day in front of the town hall as a group of space travellers new to the city. As we receive more photos and videos from the event you will be able to get a glimpse at what a visual treat the day was, not least because The Circus House crew donned their first custom made outfits hand crafted by costume designer Sophie Tyrell.
