Gallery: Magic and massages as Thai culture visits Parker’s Piece
The magic of Thailand was there for all to see over the course of two fun-packed days in central Cambridge.
Magic of Thailand, previously known as Cambridge Thai Festival, took place last Saturday and Sunday (August 3 and 4) and included cookery demonstrations, Thai boxing, children’s rides, a costume parade, traditional Thai music and dancing, and the chance to enjoy a Thai massage.
Daniel Biggs, one of the organisers and co-owner of Magic of Thailand – the company behind the festival – with his partner, Jackie Winitjun, said that around 10,000 people attended over the two days.
“This year, we were fortunate enough to have Palitchoke Ayanaputra, a Thai celebrity, come over,” said Daniel.
“He’s a pop singer and the brand ambassador for the tourism authority of Thailand, which has been focusing on the environment and protecting the beautiful country of Thailand.”
Jackie added: “We had a really warm welcome from people in Cambridge. We call our project, ‘A little corner of Thailand in Cambridge'.
If anyone who visited the event has any nice pictures they would like to share on social media, add the hashtag #MagicofThailandFestival.
