Tent Talk | Professor Paul Readman on Dressing Up The Past – the 1919 Eversley Pageant

FRIDAY 14 June | 7.15pm | The Big Top


Paul Readman and Alex Hutton introduce their on-site exhibition, which considers what the Edwardian fad for historical pageants can tell us about how the English saw themselves and their pasts. The talk and exhibition draw on a pioneering research project which has produced a database of 656 pageants organised across the United Kingdom between 1850 and the present day. 45mins plus Q&A
