If Society has Long-Covid, then LIFT has the antidote

Hullo Dear Player! It's a delight to be back with our What's On bulletin. We'll be running 3 other editions over the summer, each with an esteemed and topical Guest Editor at the helm. We'll also be working with our culture partners to produce regular Run Riot Recommends bulletins. From September we'll be back in full swing, so, enjoy and stay tuned!

Right now we have ticket competitions to see the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts; or watch the Being Bebe: The Bebe Zahara Benet Documentary on the big screen at Curzon Bloomsbury, telling the story of the immigrant from Cameroon who became the first champion on RuPaul's Drag Race! We also have tickets to Sunday Papers Live at Cecil Sharp House (Primrose Hill) - hosting a delicious day of entertainment, talks, food, walks - including Ed Miliband chatting about the news of the day. For those of you wanting to attend the Torture Garden July Ball - we're running a ticket competition.  

And now, introducing our Guest Editor, Kris Nelson, Artistic Director/CEO of the London International Festival of Theatre (LIFT) - which returns in real life for the first time since the pandemic, 23 June - 10 July!

Every two years, LIFT present a festival full of bold and relevant culture, international perspectives, and thought-provoking performances.

In Kris's Run Riot Interview with writer Maddy Costa, he explains ‘what I love about LIFT is that it’s a festival that's meant to wrestle with the headlines – it’s in LIFT’s DNA’. Oh boy, we're in for a treat this year! 

You can expect a festival that's pro-dialogue, collaborative, international, progressive, reflective, and a whole lotta-fun. To get an idea of the line-up, check out their website here

Well, dear player, engage how you can, and enjoy yourself! We'll write again soon. Bottoms up! RR x
