An Audience at the Palace – The Torquay Historical Pageant of 1924
January 13 @ 10:30 to 11:30
In the first part of the 20th century our nation was gripped by “pageantitis”, following the “mother of all pageants at Sherborne in Dorset in 1905. Torquay’s pageant was overseen by Arthur Applin – classical actor, sensationalist novel writer and war hero. Around 2,000 local people took part in what is now an almost forgotten event.
Well known local history speaker, David Hinchliffe provides a fascinating and entertaining insight into this story. Join us for our monthly daytime talk series, ticket includes a cup of tea or coffee. £5 F
