Hospitalfield Summer Festival 2018 will open with a glorious Children’s Procession on 18 June.

The artist Holly White and 400 children from Timmergreens and Muirfield Primary Schools will make a colourful, noisy, moving display which concludes at Hospitalfield House and celebrates them stepping forward into the next stage of their lives.

White has been working with the pupils, teachers and other makers over the last four months to devise the ideas behind the Procession and to make sculptures, flags, banners and t-shirts.

The contact at Timmergreens is Jacqui Smith, Head Teacher and the contact at Muirfield is Ashlea MacDonald, Principle Teacher.

Holly White’s watercolour paintings of Children’s Procession ideas alongside initial sketches and reference images including from 1945 Parade from the Detroit News archives.

Now in its second year, the Children’s Graduation Procession celebrates the children from local schools moving up to the next year and moving on to secondary school.

Everyone, including friends and families of the pupils are invited to line the streets on the procession route and come to the special welcome event at Hospitalfield.

All Welcome!

“A procession is like a party but it’s no ones birthday.”

“It’s when everyone stands in a line and walks together.”
