Horn Fair Procession

"The Big Event"

with Rediscovered Urban Rituals in association with Home at Myatt's Fields Park, Camberwell, London 20/06/09

Part 1 of 2 processions recreated by Rediscovered Urban Rituals. The original Horn Fair which began in the reign of King John was banned in 1872. Its origins lay in the legend of King John's cuckoldry of a local miller, sparking an annual procession from Cuckold's Point in Rotherhithe to Charlton House in Greenwich.

For this procession I created a new pair of gold-leaf tipped antlers based on red deer antlers.
