Peddlers Pack: so many things you never saw before is a new perambulating outdoor show created by artist Jessica Rost as part of Pedalling Culture, commissioned by Arts & Heritage Alliance Milton Keynes.
The show involves five very individual characters, with some extraordinary offers and incorporates specially created soundscapes by Stuart Moore. Although these peddlers are very much of present day and place, they have a definite other worldliness about them.
Traditionally Peddlers were people who traveled about the countryside selling wares or services. They were often immigrants, outcasts or people on the margins of society. They would offer novelty items, handmade produce or mending and repair services to people who were not able to travel into villages and towns easily.
You’ll find them travelling about the byways, carrying their wares on bicycles and barrows on the following dates: 17, 18, 19 July. Exact locations to be announced shorty.
