The puppet pageant is an annual Carlisle City Council event where community-made puppets parade through the streets. 2019’s theme was ‘A Kaleidoscope of Carlisle Life – celebrating the people and achievements that have made the city what it is today.’
The parade celebrated people from all walks of life from weavers to coffee merchants, astronomers, to fishermen.

Prism Arts worked with Cumbria Wildlife Trust’s group at Gosling Sike, Belle Vue Primary School, Tullie House Hope Street, Heathlands, Multicultural Cumbria’s Women’s Group, Probation Service, Carlisle Women’s Group, Carlisle Youth Zone, Music on the Marr and Upperby Primary School, making a selection of large scale puppets.
