Join the B-Jamba Parade with Blue Jam Arts
This year at Rheged we have teamed up with Blue Jam Arts to bring to life the huge ‘Green Dragon’ and we need some helpers! We need help to rebuild the Dragon scales before it is woken up by the sound of the Samba drums for the B-Jamba Parade! We will be running drop-in workshops on Saturday and Sunday to rebuild the dragon, have a go at the Samba drums and making your own flame head dress to take away with you. On Sunday, we will have a mini B-Jamba Parade parade here at Rheged at 2.30pm, but you can also join B-Jamba on Bank Holiday Monday in Penrith and take pride of place in the “Penrith Lions’ May Day Parade” alongside the dancing Green Dragon. (Please note, no dragons were harmed during the making of this event – this is a Parade Dragon puppet!).
