LONDON HOOP FEST IS BACK & BRINGING A WHOLE WEEK OF HOOPTASTIC JOY TO THE FINE CITY OF LONDON
MAY 26TH – JUNE 1ST!
The venue for London Hoop Fest 2013 will be at The Mile End Art Pavilion, a beautiful 5,000sqft building housed inside a landscaped hill, with a long wall of windows overlooking idyllic green spaces, tiered ponds and London’s famous Regent’s Canal! Mile End (Central Line) & Stepney Green (District Line) Underground stations are both close and parking is available.
YOUR LHF ’14 REVOLUTIONARY WEEKEND TEACHERS are Chi Chi Revolver, Miriam King, MataHoops (Henna Matanuska & Sami Babi Henikoski), Livi Hoop Little, Amy HoopLovin’, Gayle Francis, Bree Kirk-Burnnand and Anna the Hulagan, all of whom are getting ready to take you on a wild, whirling adventure through all the divine and delightful ways to handle that hoop! They’re bringing you circus skills, dance expertise, sizzling fire hoopin’ and more tricks and flicks than you can shake your hula hips at!
FREE BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY SPIN PARTY! Because we like Bank Holidays so much, and you even more, for the first day of London Hoop Fest 2014 we will be throwing open the doors and welcoming one and all to check out the space, spin themselves into a dizzy heap, dance, drink and generally make merry with us! ALL are welcome – the young, the old, the silly and the wise, spinners from every corner – bring your poi’s, your staff, your mum, your dad, your friends and your foes …and, if it all possible, can you try and bring some sunshine too? Either way, you are welcome!
DOIN IT FOR THE KIDS! To make the summer half-term even more fun, we will be hosting events just for the kids from Tuesday to Friday – think 3 hours of pure, unadulterated hoola happiness, with hoop skill classes, a mini hoop disco and hoop making and decorating!
PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT! Each afternoon during the week, we will be opening the space up to anyone and everyone who wants to come down and rock out with their hoop, for FREE!
EVENING CLASSES are definitely in the pipe-line, watch this space for more info…
London is home to the biggest hooping network in the UK so it seemed only natural for Anna the Hulagan, hoop teacher, international burlesque hoop performer and ‘London’s cult hula hooping artiste’, and husband, Rowan Bad-timing-Boy Byrne to get the hoop rolling and present the third London Hoop Fest after two years of sell-out success!
Hooping has become cool – too cool for school in fact! As we’ve got bigger so have our hoops…and trust us, if you think hooping is just about swinging a plastic circle around your hips (or at least trying to), then you are in for a surprise of revolutionizing proportions! You may be looking for an innovative, fun way to get fit, or find a new social circle (get it??!)… whether you have been shyly edging towards picking one up or pounced on any hoop in hip-shot… then come and see what London Hoop Fest is all about and see how easy it is to get hooked on the hula like we did!
