Big Summer Stilt Dance

A unique new commission from Waltham Forest arts and culture to work within the community and create a performance to celebrate the cultural Olympiad in Waltham Forest as part of the prestigious Godiva Awakes event.

We have recruited a group of girls and young women from across the borough of Waltham Forest, trained them in Stilt walking and over a two week period have created together The Waltham Forest Equestrian Circus.

Godiva Awakes takes place on Sunday 5th August 2012 when the much anticipated Lady Godiva puppet created by Imagineer productions and powered by 100 cyclists will arrive at Waltham Forest Town Hall.
