Ramsgate To Parade 40 Ton Seagull

Ramsgate is to be the setting for an exciting new street theatre presentation, following the success in London this week of a parade starring a 40 ton mechanical elephant.

The organisers have set their sights on Ramsgate, Kent's budding new millionaires' playground, and are hoping to get local star Brenda Blethyn involved.

"I can't think of a more fitting tribute to Ramsgate's new status than the vision of a humongous great seagull stalking the streets," said the show's director, Richard Eastcliff. "The fact that we have the technology and financial backing to do this now is a tribute to everyone involved, as well as to the emerging vibrance and dynamism of Ramsgate."

The theatrical presentation will tell the story of the seagull's journey from a chick to adulthood, and its life changing discovery of a bin bag full of steroids round the back of Iceland.

Brenda Blethyn? I'd pop along just for that. As far as octogenerians go, she's one hot nana!
I don't know if it helps but I do have a surfeit of porridge and swarfega which could lend a little authenticity were it to be sprayed at people from the seagulls backside.

Our Bren was in town last week, you should have grabbed her then!

I didn't know!
Not sure about grabbing her though.
She strikes me as the type that would require a bit of wooing before all the touchy, feely stuff.
Of course, I could be completely wrong.
Does anyone know?
