Restaging The Past - The Story of Historical Pageants
A screening of a new film from King's College London and Windrose Rural Media Trust with talks and a question and answer session with the film makers.
It was a movement that swept the country and was imitated abroad. Over more than a century it galvanised hundreds of thousands in great performances of costume and song. It involved ordinary people in some of the mightiest events of their lives. It was an experience that they never forgot.
The film shows some of the amazing ephemera that was produced to commemorate pageants and features the experiences of people who were closely involved. The role of Pageant Masters, performers and costume makers are recounted first hand.
