Check out our C&E participants taking part in the Coventry Carnival

Posted on 31 July 2012

On Sunday members of our Community & Education Company, both young and old, took part in the amazing Coventry Carnival, lead by Lady Godiva and her Cyclopaedia. Fresh from their hugely succesful show Shine On which ran in B2 in July, members of the newly formed 50+ programme joined youngsters from the C&E Company to wave the flag for the Belgrade.

Antonia Beck, Project Leader of the 50+ programme and director of Shine On said, “This was the first time that any of the 50+ participants had taken part in a carnival and it was amazing that they were still dancing and smiling two hours later. One of the participants, Anne McDyer, even got a special mention as a ‘Super Gran’ by BBC radio presenter Bob Brolly, as at the age of 82, she was still dancing with a huge smile on her face.”

Godiva is now making her way down to the capital for the end of the London 2012 Olympics, stopping off at numerous towns and cities on the way.
