YES, YES YES !!! ITS LONDON HOOP FEST 2014 !!!
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 2014 will be at 47/49 Tanner Street, a Victorian warehouse with 3 floors of exposed brick walls and ex-industrial features, providing a unique and inspiring environment. We programme a diverse range of arts and community projects and events, including performance, film, exhibitions, and creative learning. Our large, open-plan floors are also available for hire, and are frequently used for film shoots, photography and private events. You can even enjoy a scenic walk from the tube across the historically glorious Tower Bridge to get to us… and there’s also a Saturday market in the venue selling food, jewellery and more!
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 hosting a hoopy gathering in a London park (weather permitting!) and welcoming one and all to come and 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!
FRIDAY FIRE NIGHT! Join us in London Fields park by the Pub on the Park for a class on how to light up and set the night on fire! This workshop is limited to 15 people… please check out the tickets and programme page 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!
