HP Float – Preston Guild Procession
Commissioned by Hewlett Packard
Spacecadets designed and dressed the HP float for the Preston Guild Trade Procession.
The Guild Processions of 2012 will go down in history as some of the biggest and best attended Guild Processions ever witnessed thankfully for HP they were part of it.
With more than 110 individual vehicles and almost 3,000 walkers the Trades Procession of 2012 was truly remarkable. Everybody pulled out all the stops to decorate their floats or create costumes that wowed the 25,000 strong crowd which had packed the route.
The Preston Guild dates back to 1179 when King Henry II granted the town the right to have a Guild Merchant and gave the town its first royal charter.
It takes place every 20 years and is the only one still celebrated in the UK.
