We are delighted to announce that Handmade Parade will be creating a revolutionary and wheely brilliant parade in Todmorden on Saturday 26th April. The Fantastical Cycle Parade will be a glorious ride through the streets of Tod with bicycles, tricycles, unicycles, scooters, prams and wheelchairs transformed into all manner of strange and wonderful mechanical creatures and pedal-powered contraptions.
As ever, we will be inviting you lovely folk to come along to workshops, this time with your bikes, scooters, prams etc, and transform them into fantastical creatures to take part in the parade. Stay around after for bands, streets acts and some surprising contraptions popping up throughout Tod town centre. The Fantastical Cycle Parade is part of Yorkshire Festival 2014, an astonishing 100 days festival throughout Yorkshire organised in the lead up to the Tour de France’s Grand Depart. The parade is funded by Yorkshire Festival and Todmorden Town Council and commissioned by brilliant Tour de Tod steering group.
Workshops start: 12th April
Parade and street festival: 26th April, 1-4pm
