Carnival of Creatures, Sat 1st June – volunteers needed! #Manchester #climate

This below from Rose Arnold, part of Rising Up! Manchester Families, about the upcoming Carnival of Creatures…
The creatures are waiting…volunteers needed to bring them to life. 

We have loads of beautiful animals and insect puppets and masks loaned from the wonderful Handmade Parade, Strange Train and Global Grooves. (Images shown here…bird and fox from Handmade Parade and butterfly wings from Global Grooves, wings made by Emily and Cabasa Carnival Arts.)

Volunteers needed for Saturday 1st June, 12:30 until 3 (more likely to be done earlier). Please message via contact form or to
Over 150 species are lost every day. We’re in the middle of the sixth mass extinction which threatens us all. And yet society is mostly silent on this. Let’s take our message to the streets and demand action 🐝🍄🌿💀🐸
