Some information here that may be of interest concerning an event im taking part in in Hartlepool on Sunday March 29th 2pm. sean

from the website...

The Hartlepool Community Cavalcade is a spectacular mobile performance made up of multi-artform elements, such as stunning Physical Theatre performances, a sensational Samba Sea Shanty and a dazzling Carnival routine. The cavalcade also features breathtaking costumes and structures.

• The theme of the Cavalcade is 'Hartlepool Maritime Monsters, Myths & Magic'. So the performance links together and tells four Hartlepool folk tales and legends:
The Flight of St Bega the mythical tale of Hartlepool's first saint, a virgin who fled a forced marriage in Ireland sailing across the Irish sea where she was shipwrecked at Cumbria - She was supposed to be the first ever nun in Britain and performed a beautiful snow miracle.

• 'No More Frying Bacon' - the comic tale from Elizabethan times when the mayor of Hartlepool confiscated every frying pan in the town on the apparent orders of the Queen who in fact had said that there should be 'no more firing of the beacon!'

• The Great Gale of 1861 - the fierce storm in February 1861 when 80 ships were wrecked off the Hartlepool coast and the dramatic rescue attempt of the Rising Sun.

The Friar's Curse - the medieval story of a naughty boy who played a trick on the Franciscan monks on the Headland but the monks got their revengin by putting an unbreakable curse on the town of Hartlepool - that it should have no trees!

There will be over 300 hundred participants from across Hartlepool in this stupendous procession, drawn from a mix of Schools, Hartlepool 6th Form College, CCAD, community groups and Handprint art studio. The groups have been working since the beginning of the year with artists building upon their skills and perfecting their performances for your enjoyment.

Don't miss the first installment of this truly remarkable community event – come see and hear the Community Cavalcade on Sunday 29th March. And what's more this is a free event.

The spectacle starts at Two O'clock sharp.

Hmm, I might think of doing that. I've recently been working on stories about lifeboat rescues myself. I've reseached some from the Redcar area and put a story together - fiction but inspired by real people and events. The Headland is it? I don't know that part of Hartlepool very well.

I think it may depend on the weather. I went through to Harlepool one day last spring and it poured down and my shoes got so soaked that I ended up having to throw them out.

I wonder if they will be performing Alan Todd's great song about the 'No More Frying Bacon' incident

From memory:

The frying of bacon you'll have to stop
You'll have to get patties from Veryll's fish shop

or something similar.

Is the Pot House club on that weekend Sean - I may have a trip back home if so
