21 May Mimbre at Dalston Children’s Festival
This Saturday, May 25th, the Dalston Children’s Festival will be launched, a new community-led festival that promotes fun and free things to do for children and young people, all over Dalston, all summer long (25th May – 31st Aug 2013). It is a celebration of the extraordinary creativity of Dalston’s community and the resourcefulness and imagination of local people who are committed to making Dalston a great place for children and young people all year round. Mimbre is very happy to be part of this exciting new festival in Dalston!
On June 22nd on Dalston Square (London E8 3BQ) we will present our show “Falling Up” (at 2.30pm), offer dance and acrobatics workshops (at 3.30pm & 4pm) and see our Mimbre Youth Company (a cast of talented young people from Hackney) show off their moves in an action-packed performance fusing street-dance and acrobatics (at 2pm)! To book a place on one of the workshops please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 3095 9710.

The festival activities start during the day on Saturday 25th of May wi a climbing wall and family film workshops in Dalston Square, ‘pothole’ gardening, honey tasting and scarecrow-making in the Dalston Eastern Curve Garden, Big and Small music workshops for all ages at the Vortex Jazz Club, games from around the world in Gillett Square and family craft workshops in Dalston CLR James Library. These events are linked together by a Dalston-wide ‘scavenger hunt’. After these daytime activities, the festival launch culminates when the sun goes down with the outdoor Dalston Square Cinema (from 8.45pm).
