A city centre parade is paying homage to the silver screen this year.

The annual Lord Mayor’s Parade will have the theme of ‘Sensational Cinema’ with a host of eye-catching costumes themed on the big screen. There will be four distinct parts of the parade, representing in turn black-and-white film, colour film, Bollywood and cinemas.

And this costume, specially designed for the event by local artist Morwenna Catt, promises to be one of the highlights.

The elaborate headdress depicts the story of Bronte classic Wuthering Heights as if adapted into a Bollywood film, and features sheep and brooding moors as well as the lovers Heathcliff and Catherine.
