Sports Day


Please join me and Adele Prince from Sports Day tomorrow - Saturday 26 May - on Hackney Marshes in east London for the most anticipated event of the sporting calendar - the Artists' Dance Off 2007.

16 brave contestants will battle it out in a series of head-to-head knock out dancing rounds. They will have 30 seconds to impress the audience with their most outrageous moves, to out dance their competitor and make it one step closer to lifting that much coveted Dance Off trophy.

To sign up please arrive from 13:00 on the day or email Sports Day in advance. Remember if you have a particularly favourite song; please bring a CD with you. The event starts promptly at 14:00. For map and further details please visit the Grunts for the Arts website.

This event takes place as part the Artists' Sports Day organised by Grunts for the Arts, which aims to act as a protest of sorts against the recent siphoning off of 35% or the Arts Council Grants for the Arts funds in order to pay for the 2012 Olympics.

I hope to see you there with your dancing shoes on!
