The Curlicue Times No1 in 1987


Thirty four years ago in 1987 an exciting project came to Pilton. Funded by Beaford Arts to celebrate its 21st birthday, and with enormous support from many local companies, the Horse and Bamboo Theatre from Rossendale in Lancashire organised what turned out to be a spectacular four days of events, celebration and fun. They took place over the Easter Holidays of 1987 on the streets of Pilton and in Pilton Park and brought together local schools, clubs and organisations as well as many individuals.
A CURLICUE or CURLEY Q originally meant a type of hairstyle worn by sailors with a short curl at the back, but later came to mean a decorative twist or small quirk. When the Horse and Bamboo Theatre first visited Pilton their immediate impression was of a maze-like labyrinth of paths and streets, dotted with strange and interesting buildings and places which they called CURLICUES.
A number of editions of The Curlicue Times were produced between February 1987 and the main events over the Easter holiday on the streets of Pilton and in Pilton Park. At the moment we only have a copy of this one so if anyone knows or has others please let us know. For more details follow this link:
