Let’s face it, summer is the best – isn’t it? The grey, rainy skies are gone and the hot, sunny weather is here to (hopefully) stay.
Now that we’re in for some warmer weather, it’s time to start looking at some things to do. But where do you even start?
You can always find some fantastic events happening at Angel Central during the summer, and we’ve made a short guide to what’s on.
We are happy to announce that The Greatest Show On Turf is back again this year and we will be bringing you some fantastic events over the summer.
First up, we have a treat in one of the UK’s leading comedian/magicians, Pete Firman on 26th July. Pete’s blend of comedy and magic has been known to wow crowds across the country, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store for us when he visits Islington.
During the month of August, we will be hosting events every Thursday on the lawn for crowds at Angel Central to enjoy.
We shall be welcoming Titan the Robot back for another visit on 2nd August, who gave a truly entertaining show last time it was here. Being described as “the ultimate crowd pleaser”, “hysterically funny” and “thrilling entertainment”, we’re sure that you’re in for a treat.
Fan of hula hooping? The very talented Angie Mack brings her energetic act to Islington on 9th August, and we can’t wait to what’s in store for us. You’ve never seen hula hooping quite like this.
We travel back in time to the Jurassic period with a visit from Tiny the Dinosaur on 16th August. The fantastic stegosaurus is a brought to life by a team of special effects artist and puppeteers, and provides a fun but educational history show for audiences.
Performer Ian Marchant drops by Angel Central on 23rd August. Ian has worked with the world renowned Gandini Juggling and been in operas at the Royal Opera House, but has mainly worked solo all over the world on stages, cruise ships and (his favourite) in the sunshine outdoors on the streets.
Next up we see football freestyler and TV presenter Dan Magness take to the artificial lawn on 28th August. He’ll be bringing his fantastic Guinness World Record breaking skills to our shopping centre. This is not to be missed!
Balloonatic’s Bonkers Balloon Show (try saying that twice as fast) will be here on 30th August and is sure to be a blast. The signature balloon show has been described as “completely off the wall”, and blends comedy, music, magic and you guessed it, balloons.
Be sure to keep an eye out for more information on these events.
