Winter Solstice Parade Dec 21
Do you enjoy the Summer and Winter Solstice parades between New Cross and Telegraph Hill? Would you like to see the new tradition of the Night of the Beasts winter solstice parade maintained? If so, for it to happen, we need a couple of volunteers. One person to co-ordinate and publicise the event, and one person to be the parade leader.
The co-ordinating work involves: informing the Telegraph pub of the start time, co-ordinating with Transition New Cross to organise the New Cross leg of the parade, encouraging families/groups to make costumes, making and distributing a poster, publicising online and with schools, arranging for musicians to be there (we usually invite Les Zoings and the Transiberian March Band), arranging a simple party (probably at the Somerville Adventure Playground this year).
The parade leader needs to organise making of an impressive costume, decide and inform on the route, help keep it safe, and make the parade lively by dancing in costume.
