URGENT REMINDER: Today (Sunday 11th May) is our first carnival costume workshop! Come along to start creating a wonderful costume on the theme of multiculture, for yourself and/or your bike!
Blue Moon community room (formerly Man on the Moon) on Norfolk Street, 2-5pm!!!!
See you there??
Ladies and gentlemen,
Ladies and Gentlemen.
Drumroll please for our twelve shortlisted poster designs! As you may remember, both last year AND the year before it was absolutely neck-and-neck until the very end, with just a couple of votes separating the eventual winner and the runner up, so YOUR vote counts!!
Which do YOU think should be our fabulous poster for this year’s PACT Summer Event? For ease of reference, this year we’ve numbered them all to avoid confusion, so please let me know which one YOU think is the best!
Congratulations and good luck to everyone shortlisted, and better luck next year to those who didn’t quite make it this time. It’s wonderfully exciting to see the standard continue to improve year on year.
So: the voting starts…. NOW. One vote per person: but please feel free to forward this entire post showing ALL the shortlisted designs to all your friends, family and colleagues living or working or studying in this area to give THEM the opportunity to vote too!
Deadline for your vote: Sunday 27 April!
Due to the dire weather forecast, we have to cancel the picnic tomorrow (Sunday 15th September 2013).
PACT is delighted to announce the winners of our PACT/Norfolk Street Summer Event carnival costume competition, and to share the photographs that have won and were shortlisted for our PACT Summer Event 2013 photographic competition!
The shortlisted photographs, submitted by members of the public and voted on by PACT’s trustees, were on display at our AGM on Tuesday 9th July in the Squeaky Gate community room from 7:30pm. They will then be on display at The Box Café on Norfolk Street, with kind permission of Ozy. The winning photographs were selected by Dave Harwood, professional photographer for the Cambridge News, and announced at the AGM:
- 1st place: Steven Lee with a striking shot of the Chinese lion dance that opened the Summer Event
- 2nd place: Steven Lee, again! A candid shot of a couple examining the schedule of events
- 3rd place: Matt Hodgkinson’s shot of the colourful ‘Graffiti Gardens’
- Kenn Martin deserves a special mention, having taken 11 of the 25 shortlisted photos
Carnival costume winners
We were so excited by the response to our carnival costume workshops and the parade on the day. Here are the best costumes from the Carnival Parade:
- First place: Paul Little as the fly – and yes, those ARE windscreen wipers which found new life as his antennae!
- Second place: Evie as the red bird
- Third place: Siâna C-R as the ladybird – complete with leaf!
Congratulations to all three! An honourable mention goes to Herbie for his simple-but-super toadstool costume.
