Join us for a day of performances, workshops and entertainment as we join our East Bank partners - BBC, UAL’S London College of Fashion, UCL and the V&A - to partake in the nationwide initiative celebrating kindness and respect, The Great Get Together. Entrance is FREE.

Performing on the day will also be The Archetype, the UK Dance Awards 2018 Dance Group of the Year, best-known for their unique methodology, energy and slick moves.

On the Breakin’ Convention stage, expect a jam-packed day of rap, spoken word and dance performed by young artists who have been developing their work with Breakin’ Convention throughout the year. You can also catch dance performances from Elementz Ent and Rain Crew, as well musician Capo Lee performing his new project Why Not 3. The stage will be buzzing all day as Capital Xtra DJ Shayna Marie and Reprezent radio’s DJ Sandra Omari will be representing women in music, playing a selection of hip hop, Afrobeats and more.

Plus, experience the vibrancy and vitality of Phoenix Dance Theatre, who will perform an excerpt from Sharon Watson’s award-winning Windrush: Movement of the People, the first contemporary dance piece to commemorate the arrival of SS Empire Windrush.

All this, plus performances from Sadler’s Wells Associate Schools, graffiti workshops and dance workshops for the family, so you can participate as well as enjoy our next generation of artists.

The event is part of a nationwide initiative launched by the Jo Cox Foundation to celebrate community and commonality.
