Historical Pageants Day, 7 August 2021
Historical Pageants Day
Saturday 7 August 2021
Cecil Sharp House, London
In collaboration with the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS), one of our project partners, we presented a day of talks, exhibitions and performances of historical pageantry from local history organisations, museums, theatre groups, and musicians. This was held at the headquarters of EFDSS, Cecil Sharp House, on 7 August 2021, and was a great success!
The day was followed by a separate evening event featuring scenes, music and dance from selected pageants, some of which have not been staged for many decades.
