The line up includes Heart n Soul's synth pop sensations electric Fire, award-winning singer/songwriter Lizzie Emeh, soul diva and poet AMYRA, BLINK Dance's eye popping drag star Francesca, Brownton Abbey's Tarik Elmoutawakil, plus Heart n Soul DJs. It's going to be inclusive, relaxed and utterly brilliant.

Meet the Rebels:

BLINK Dance Theatre present London's favourite Drag Queen, Francesca
She's got style, she's got grace, she's got glitter on her face, she's a lady. Lip syncing her way to the top and serving nothing but sass, she's the only one who can get this party started.

Tarik Elmoutawakil
An artist and producer currently exploring celebratory ways to play with radical inclusion and radical exclusion to carve space for people with multiple intersecting marginalised identities. For the closing party Tarik will bring his signature afrofuturistic aesthetic to the party, for an out of this world experience. 

Fusing music and poetry through powerfully transparent performances focusing on social inequalities and celebrating love, blackness, and what it means to be a woman. 

Lizzie Emeh
An award-winning artist who uses music to touch and change people's lives. In 2009 she made history when she became the first solo artist with a learning disability to release an album of original songs in the UK. Lizzie will be performing a selection of her songs with a full live band. 

Electric Fire
