Well that's how we describe it anyway. It sort of works, it at least gives a flavour of what we're about.
Because just how do you describe a venue that can put children's entertainer Palfi the Clown on, on the same day as Cradle of Filth? Where a Farmer's Market in the morning becomes a comedy club in the evening, where folk enthusiasts can sit happily knitting (and they do!) in the exact same spot a ferocious mosh pit of teenage dancing takes place the following night? And where the beautiful historic architecture of St Mary's Church dating back over a thousand years, plays host to some of the newest comics, most modern choreographers, some of the coolest DJ's and some of the freshest talent in Britain.
Toodle Lou Events will be taking over Colchester Arts Centre on Friday 30th March 2018 and we are going DOWN UNDER! Put your bathing suits on ladies and gents, it’s time to go UNDER THE SEA!
Supporting one of the most active environmental UK charities, Surfers Against Sewage, this unique event will see you welcomed with open fins! Let your imagination swim miles and leave your anchors at home, it’s time to put on that mermaid tail and get as happy as a clam!
The fin-tastic Jupiter Ray will be taking over our stage as surprise performers join you on the dance floor. This event is for adults only so get ready to drink like a fish at our sea-themed cocktail bar and get crabbing for a pirate’s buried treasure.
Fancy dress is not just a requirement… it’s ENCOURAGED! Think sunken pirates, elegant mermaids, sea creatures, scuba divers and jelly fish! Dress to impress - you might just find a catch!
So water you gotta think about, book your tickets today: https://www.colchesterartscentre.com/events/party/under-the-sea-/
Please note - this event is for over 18s only. Tickets are non-refundable and cannot be guaranteed on the door. Booking in advance is advised. 100% of the money raised at a Toodle-Lou event will go directly to charity.
Music from the 14th century provides the backdrop to the tale of the Great Revolt and radical preacher John Ball. Born near Colchester (maybe?), Ball preached in English (shocking!) and claimed that everyone was created equal (scandalous!!). He was excommunicated and would have languished in jail had he not been released by the Rebels as they took London, burnt the Savoy, and went on to parley with the King. The future hung in the balance...
