Closing Day Parade - The Parade of Friendly Monsters

  • November 3 @ 12:00 am - November 3 @ 2:00 pm

Come and watch the Parade of Friendly Monsters!


Across the world, humans have created masquerade traditions that are both beautiful and startling. Whenever there’s the need for communities to process and incorporate a significant change, we turn ourselves into monsters, animals and spirits.

On Sunday 3 November 2019 – perhaps days after a Halloween Brexit – we invite everyone to join us to watch our Parade of Friendly Monsters. Expect a whirlwind of fur, feathers, horns, drones, drums, pompoms, bears, bagpipes, sequins, leather, lions and bells. This is the closing event for Deptford X 2019.

The Parade will start at midday in Fordham Park and you can watch the Parade as they make their way towards Deptford High Street, ending in the Market Yard – so if you’re keen to meet some friendly monsters take a look at the route map and come down and cheer them on!
