DOT INVESTIGATES - The Case Of the Missing Pageant.

In years gone by, pageants ruled the social scene. Leicester had its very own. But it disappeared, almost, but NOT QUITE, without a trace. DOT has donned its Trilby and Mac to begin an investigation.

DOT invites you to hear tales of the past and to experience the exploration into the theme of the Pageant by two exciting artists.

'And we’ll be asking you whether you think such a thing could ever be revived or reinterpreted. Should it be? We would love to know what you think could happen in the future, and you never know, it may just happen!'

With artists:
Monica Fernandez, Leicester
Mark Goodwin, Leicester
Speaker:
Dr Franco Bianchini, De Montfort University

The Leicester Pageant of 1932 was a spectacular event with a cast of 4000 people telling the history of the city over a 7-day festival. The story of the city began in 50 A.D. and went through all the eras of history up until the present day. Thousands of townsfolk came to the event and followed its development in the newspapers.
