Old Time Market Place



Hey there everyone. Recently we all went to see a theatre group called “The Cinquanta” who replicate an old time market place, placed in the late 1800′s to early 1900′s in Italy, as a moving museum. All the equipment pieces are actual antique pieces from the time. The group also sang folks songs of the day. It was very interesting and the children loved it !

If you are a spinner, please note the antique spinning wheel design and related pieces :-)

This performance was at the Lygon St Festa, and so we filled up on yummy Italian delights and home-made icecream. Yum !!

    Very Good! How did you know that the group is called
    “The Cinquanta” ?? (Is it because there are 50 people in the theatre group?)
