Get inventive and create your own MAD head

As part of Imagineer Productions annual MAD UK Live event, taking place on Saturday 1 October in Coventry City Centre, part of the Festival of Invention, Imagineer are inviting members of the public to come along wearing their own creative headgear and be in with a chance of winning a cash prize of £250 on the day.

MAD heads is a fantastic way for members of the public to be inventive and test their own creative skills by designing and wearing expressive headgear on the day from sculpting your own hair to creating a hat that tells a story and stops people in their tracks.

Kathi Leahy, Director at Imagineer Productions said: “MAD heads is a great competition as part of our MAD UK Live event, the response in previous years has been fantastic and we love seeing how many creative people there are in Coventry as they showcase their own headgear designs.”

MAD UK Live, whose patron is renowned fashion design Zandra Rhodes, celebrates the talents of emerging young designers and this year is based on the theme ‘Echoes of Africa’. On 1 October a choreographed showcase presenting this year’s most extreme sculptural costume design will be judged live in performance in Coventry City Centre.

The event is part of the Festival of Invention, which showcases inventions and innovations to highlight Coventry’s vast creativity, imagination and technical expertise.
