THE GREAT ELEPHANT
The theme for Manchester Day in 2012 was 'The Sky's the Limit', presenting the idea that we can go anywhere as a city. Sophie Tyrrell applied to join the parade with a group of friends and parents that belonged to the same home-schooling community. Together they created THE GREAT ELEPHANT OF TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENT. The Great Elephant was a Dickensian reference to the machines that bellowed and groaned inside factories during the industrial revolution. This particular beast has been liberated by a curious circus troupe, who proudly parade their star attraction, as he bellows steam!
