Shambala Festival

At 8pm on Saturday 11th April, we're inviting YOU to take part in the first ever DANCE-OFF: ZOOM EDITION.

You’ll all be relieved to know that, rather than hanging up their dancing shoes and gazing wistfully out the window, Shambala legends The Dance-Off! have been hard at work behind the scenes to recreate the magic of their classic dance battles, online. And by jove, we think they’ve got it!

How to get involved:

🥇Download Zoom to your desktop in advance (the phone edition won’t give you access to what you need, to vote and fully engage).

🥇Nobody wants to dance to tinny laptop noise so hook up your computer to some decent speakers.

🥇We will post the link to join (and some instructions and rules) here on our Facebook shortly before 8pm on Saturday.

🥇Click the link, join the meeting and prepare to relive the magic of that checkerboard ring, from the comfort of your couch.

🥇IMPORTANT – this first, experimental Dance-Off has a capacity of 100 people. This will be first come, first served so don’t be late! If we aren’t able to accommodate you this time, a thousand apologies, but if it goes well, we absolutely will do it again…

🥇Festival finery and nonsense costumes are strongly advised!

A friendly warning: Whilst we will of course try to keep this squeaky clean, the action will be unfolding live and we can’t guarantee that it will be suitable for young eyes and ears. To play it safe, The Dance Off: Zoom Edition is recommended for ages 18+

See you on Saturday! x

Keen to do your bit to help your local community, but not sure where to start? We've put together a handy guide.

There are heaps of organisations and charities that need your help - whether it's through becoming an NHS volunteer, supporting your local food banks, helping keep local independent businesses (or your favourite boozer!) afloat, or signing up to be a check-in-and-chat volunteer for folks that are struggling with loneliness.

We intend to update this guide regularly, so if you've got any leads for (reliable, factchecked and safe) ways to make a difference, drop us a line and tell us all about them!

Stay safe, wash yer hands, look after each other.
