Coleford Pageant

handmade_parade_30-6-12This year we will be holding a colourful community pageant to open the festival.

The pageant will be a celebration of the rich history and heritage of The Forest of Dean. It will bring a visual interpretation by means of a colourful sequence of tableau’s that depicts‘what is special’ about the Forest of Dean.

Local schools, community groups and individuals will be engaged to create their own interpretation of ‘what is special’ from times of celebration in local history such as festivals, brass bands, markets, fayre’s and events, and from what makes the forest nationally identifiable and unique today, such as the two rivers, tree’s, bluebells, deer, sheep and wild boar.

The pageant will be a parade which will take place through the town centre.
