Welcome to The Foul Rag and Bone Shop of the Heart...

Somerfest & The Endless Parade

It’s a busy time of year for Rag and Bone – no resting on our worn out laurels in the Boneyard. Tim Hill and Geraldine Giddings organised the Endless Parade – a 1 day conference in Taunton, Somerset exploring parades, processsions, carnivals and other mobile transports of delight. Rag and Bone were there with some of the procesional devices, mutant bicycles and mobile beasts we’ve made in the last year or so.

Two days later on 15th June we were a core part of 2 processions for Somerfest in Taunton town centre, along with Mike Pattison from Kinetica and his amazing contraptions from the Paralympics Closing Ceremony, and the The Big Noise.  Much fun was had by all, including participants and an unsuspecting public. We’re hoping this can turn into a regular event – here at Rag and Bone we delight in seeing town centres full of colour, fun, mayhem and a joyful noise.
