Dr Plots Midsummer Madness @ Sparrow Park,
Jul 3 @ 11:00 am – 2:30 pm
Dr Plots Midsummer Madness @ Sparrow Park,  | Leek | United Kingdom

One of our regular additional events as part of the Sunday Supplement.

Dr Plot’s Midsummer Madness is returning on Sunday, July 3rd 2016 Fun, workshops, storytelling and a parade, all about Leek and her weird, wonderful and lesser known history.

Did you know that Leek Embroidery Society created a replica Bayeaux Tapestry, and this year is the 130th anniversary of it being exhibited in Leek, and its 900 years since 1066 and all that so we’re going to have some fun celebrating:

Things to do on the day (as well as visit the market shops in town!):

  • Take part in the parade to escort our 9ft ‘puppets’ of Sir Gawain & The Green Knight to their duel, leaving top of the Market Place at 11am, towards Sparrow Park for a live show of the final part of the world famous Arthurian poem Sir Gawain & The Green Knight
  • Workshops for all ages – cardboard armour/swords and shields (this was so popular last year we’ve had to do it again)
  • Create your own live Bayeaux Tapestry scenes in our huge lightbox that you can photograph/ instagram/ have your photo taken
  • Every knight needs a horse! create your own shadow horse for the bayeaux tapestry
  • Be ready to escort the victorious Gawain back to the Market Place at 2pm
  • Rest your feet and listen to our very own story teller telling tall tales and myths from the local area
  • And lots more….
