"A monster affair"
It's twilight on the eve of Halloween and it's time to banish those monsters for good.
In Autumn 2010 Unfolding Theatre worked with children at Tuesday Club, West End Women and Girls Centre and Bill Quay Primary School to design 4 large-scale monsters for the Juice Festival Finale, the Monsters Parade.
Around 700 people joined the parade, dressed in their Halloween finest. The monsters appeared to the delight of children and their parents. Accompanied by young people's bands from The Sage Gateshead, the crowd banished the monsters from Newcastle and Gateshead's Quayside and onto the River Escape's ferry to sail them off to Monsterland.
Children of Newcastle and Gateshead can sleep in peace again. There'll be no more bumps in the night!
