Summer Parade

This year’s parade will have a new amazing look with spectacular costumes, energetic music and a great atmosphere.

Alice in Wonderland will be the central theme of this year’s annual event, with the much loved characters taking centre stage on a series of floats as they make¬†their way from South Shields Town Hall to the seafront.

South Tyneside Council has enlisted the creative talents of acclaimed couture designer Paul Shriek and his design partner Matt Fox to capture Lewis Carroll’s weird world of Wonderland, and the results will no doubt¬†be stunning!

With this year marking the 150th anniversary of the publication of the classic story of Alice in Wonderland, and the famous author said to have been inspired in his writing by holidays spent in Whitburn, it’s a fitting theme for the event.
