To encourage and support Parade participants in creating and building a float, free workshops will be on offer again this year.

Facilitated by experienced theatre producers skilled in set, costume and prop design, Simone Tesorieri and Simona Cosentini.

Participants will learn about concept development, float, and costume design, makeup and overall float construction.

Experienced local sound and lighting technician, Sam Gibb, will offer simple tips in technical design and set up of your floats (you could have music, lights, even projectors) and also how to ensure floats are safe for all participants.

The opportunity to work with international theatre producers and technicians is a rare treat.
