Respect Festival today 1 to 8 pm

Respect Festival:

This year at Respect...
Our annual festival returns to Roundwood Park on July 4. Promising to be bigger and better the ever the event will feature live music, dance, theatre and martial arts from across the world. Below is a guide to some of the day's events

On the Respect Stage MUSKAAN perform their bollywood wheelchair dance and  Active Aspirations emcee Trix, winner of Brent's Got Talent and fellow emcee Cortex spit some lyrics.  Indian dance group Dancing Nikita Company and Reggae band, The Ruff Cutt, close the proceedings.

At the Arena, Drama Workhouse present Theatre Combat providing inside tips on stage fighting. Brent Youth Circus Company will perform their Heroes and Heroines piece with Albert and Friends Instant Circus hosting a circus workshop.

To launch Brent Dance Month (BDM) there will be a day of dance workshops and performances at the Momentum tent meaning you get a sneak preview of the BDM July program. You won't want to miss the Hypnotik Intergenerational Dance Piece, a fusion of ballroom and hip hop featuring young males and 65 plus  ladies.

For the first time in Respect's history there will be a free 80s Roller Disco for you to show your moves off. Or relax and take in the sights of Roundwood Park with a free horse and carriage ride from The Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment.

Think you know your partner inside out? Well put it to the test and enter the Mr and Mrs Quiz. If you fancy learning a new skill, why not try out henna tattooing or demonstrations from the Stonebridge Boxing Club?

There will be loads to do for the little ones with their very own Giraffes Can't Dance tent. This will feature face painting, story telling, mask making and much more.
