Turner pupils celebrate Charivari festival

News : 14 July 2019

Pupils across Turner Schools have played a key role in the town’s Charivari celebration. Working with local art company Strange Cargo, our pupils created a number of incredible floats for the theme A Night at the Movies.

Our pupils worked brilliantly with the artists and their teachers to make these constructions which towered above them! They worked across a range of film-based themes to come up with characters as varied as Batman, Wonder Woman, Shrek and even a gigantic carnival tent from The Greatest Showman! They also made sure their school pride was clear to see, with each school prominently represented.

For the parade our pupils showed their creations off alongside dancers, community groups, public workshop participants and even drumming bands over the course of the afternoon. Following the parade we enjoyed an afternoon of music at the bandstand.

We have collected our favourite photos from the event, we hope you like them as much as we do!
