Feast of the Pacific – Bury Met

Summer 2002 proved very busy in Manchester with events for the Jubilee and Commonwealth Games. The Jubilee parade theme was Feast of Delights. Bury’s link country was Tuvalu, a set of pacific islands slowly sinking into the sea. We wanted to link these so that costumes and performances could be used at both events and so chose to base the performance on the variety of colourful creatures found under the sea. The groups had performed at festivals & parades in the past but always with everyone as roughly the same thing. They were adamant that they wanted an array of different characters this time.
