Publications

We have actively published in a number of different formats during the lifetime of our project, including our regular project blog and in our major pageants database, which is now available and fully searchable.

Drawing upon our research over the last few years, members of the Project Team have also written and, indeed, are still in the process of writing a range of publications that explore various aspects of historical pageants in twentieth century Britain. You can find more details of these here:
