This June saw Blackshaw run its first free event, and boy did we make it a corker. Held at The Selkirk, home to our recent WAFF show run, in Tooting Broadway we took advantage of their sunny beer garden and turned it into our very own festival venue; complete with bunting, fairy lights, and a smattering of deck chairs for good measure.
We had a cracking line up of both comedy and music to fill the day. All rounded off with a delightful little set from Blackshaw regulars The Bandits, who had the whole crowd dancing to the Hokey Cokey for their final song. An excellent choice you’ll agree.
The other acts were all super too.
Of course no festival themed day is complete without some home baking and face painting, both of which went down a treat, especially with our social events manager, Nick.
A big thank you to The Selkirk, who let us loose for the whole day, if you get a chance do go and enjoy the venue’s tasty, tasty food, I can highly recommend the cheese board.
We had a smashing day, we hope those of you who joined us did too. Make sure you keep your eyes on our twitter/facebook feeds for news of our autumn event – not to give too much away, but you could say it’s going to be the bomb. And we’re all going to get blitzed…Doing the jitterbug…it’s a 40’s themed event.
