Victorian Extravaganza

The Victorian Extravaganza is an institution in Llandudno.

Folks come from miles around to celebrate the towns Victorian Glory by sending their kids off to spin themselves silly on the Meteorite, the Waltzer, the Satellite and the Miami Trip; and later in the afternoon the family re-converges to settle sugared stomachs at the side of the road, watching fabulous iron, steam and grease beasts roll proudly down the road, so thoroughly polished, so loud and pungent; and for some inexplicable reason, but predictably still, each year they’re followed up by Darth Vader and any number of imperialist troops – Surreal Victoriana it sure is.

So naturally Cylch wanted to have a presence, we thought it could be an opportunity to promote the Circuit programme and show that MOSTYN was on the map for under 25s. We decided on creating Giant Carnival heads in a move towards having a session for the group that was more actively creative.

We’ll be following this up with a Circulate post about our presence at the event – how it went well, and how it could be better.
