Beverley Georgian Festival

Beverley celebrated the succession of George the First and the 300 anniversary of the Market Cross for a whole week from September 13th to September 21st. Beverley did this by reenacting certain events such as the Georgian British Army coronation salute or wearing Georgian clothing and dancing.

The town also celebrated this by selling the town famous Yorkshire bun which has been around since Georgian times and this was given to the audience as free samples along with a traditional Georgian cake that was cut into a thousand pieces by the mayor of the town. Old Georgian buildings where also open to public to see how the Georgian lived within the town during that era. The old Ideas and styles that were used during the Georgian period have been successfully recaptured by this town event and some of these various ideas and styles have given ideas that I may use in the future for my animation course.
