John Hartshorn, Parade Director says, “Whether you’d like to take part in the Carnival Parade, or create costumes and floats, the Parade team is on hand to help. Be it ideas, materials, support or workshop facilities where anyone and everyone can construct their push floats – Macc ArtSpace is your free community resource!”

He goes on to appeal to the creative spirit of the Macclesfield community, “We would love to hear from musicians, singers and dancers – as performing groups or individuals. We are also looking for actors/performers to play specific character roles – people who are willing to improvise and engage with the crowd to help animate the show.  If this is you, please get in touch, we want this year’s Parade to be the noisiest, most interactive yet!”

The Carnival Parade will take place on Saturday 21 June at 2pmduring the Big Weekend and is a highlight of the Barnaby Festival(Saturday 14 – Sunday 29 June).
