Roll up for a family-friendly day of dance and roller skating workshops, live music and sound systems in the finale of our season of artist-curated weekends.
Roller skate collective We The NC begins the day at 1pm with a roller skating workshop. The workshop is open to all aged six and over, but participants need to be competent skaters. In order to take part, bring along your own skates, knee and wrist pads, and a helmet. Young skaters must be accompanied by an adult.
Next on stage is Baque Laur, a London-based collective of female vocalists and percussionists, united by their love of Brazilian and African Brazilian roots music. Drawing inspiration from the rich soundscapes and traditions of maracatu, coco, bumba meu boi, tambores de Minas and ciranda, as well as sacred rhythms of Brazilian Candomblé, Baque Luar combines original multivocal compositions and arrangements with powerful percussive grooves.
To end the day, DJ Snuff One and Shumba Youth, along with special guests, keep us dancing with a sound system on the terrace.
This event is part of Summer Reunion, a season of collaborations with guest curators. It’s a chance to reflect on what we’ve learnt, what happens now – and a reunion of artists and audiences, families and friends.
Shingai Shoniwa is a Zimbabwean-British musician and vocalist. She rose to fame as the frontwoman of pop-indie band the Noisettes before launching her solo career in 2020. Shingai is the embodiment of a true cross-artform performer, incorporating circus, fashion and theatre into her work.
