The Warwick Pageant was part of the early 20th-century craze for historical pageants, and it was organised and directed by Louis Napoleon Parker, one of the founders of the form. Today the pageant has been replaced by the Warwick International Festival, which takes place on the castle's 'Pageant Field'.
