Scarborough Exhibition Announcement

Exhibition: Scarborough Historical Pageant

Scarborough Art Gallery, 12 September to 10 October 2016

We are pleased to announce details of our forthcoming exhibition at Scarborough Art Gallery on the Scarborough Historical Pageant of 1912. This is staged in association with our project partners the Scarborough Museums Trust (SMT) and the Scarborough Archaeological and Historical Society (SAHS).

The exhibition tells the story of the one of the many large historical pageants in the Edwardian period. It contains a wealth of information and photographs, as well as reproductions of pageant costumes and life-size figures from the historical pageant. There will also be the chance to sing along with the ‘Song of Scarborough’, which was specially written for the pageant of 1912.
