Welcome to 'The Queens Jubillegal'. London's only EVERYBODY GET INVOLVED Royal flotilla.
On Saturday 2nd June scores of revellers will descend upon the Regents canal with all manner of flotation devices. Dinghies, rafts, canoes, kayaks, lilos, bathtubs, pedalos, rubber rings, rubber ducks, you name it. If it floats, we want it.
The idea is to get IN, ON and AROUND the canal as much as possible in a booming procession of absolute raucus nonsense.
WE WANT TO MAKE THIS THE MOST MASSIVE FLOATING PARTY LONDON HAS EVER SEEN.
But our flotilla needs the QUEEN to lead it - hence the mission to build a replica head to float on the canal.
The head/barge contraption will be designed by artist Hugo Fergusson and will be fitted with an internal sound system.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Why should the Queen have all the fun??
She shouldn't. At least that's what we at Animal Control believe and so we've decide to do something about it...
The Jubilee will be grand. But not everyone's invited. So we've decided to create our own, wonkier version, complete with replica monarch. With your help we can make it happen.
Steps to get it done:
Here's the plan for the day:
At 11am on the morning of the 2nd June we will meet near Union Wharf in Islington (exact Location to be released close to the date - check our Facebook page!).
All crafts will take to the canal in the proper order with the lead boat (complete with onboard sound system, DJs, and giant Queens head) at the front.
We will slowly paddle, pedal, swim and splash our way along the canal partying, singing, whooping and laughing until we reach Broadway market.
Once at the lock we will gather together and celebrate the 60 years of our monarch by having a jolly good dance to some tunes supplied by the lovely people of Glade festival.
Themed boats are welcomed and have a better chance of gaining a higher placement in the procession.
PLEASE HELP US BUILD THE QUEEN'S HEAD BY PLEDGING!
This party will grow organically over the coming days. We have some HUGE collaborations lined up so keep your eyes peeled for announcements!
See you there!
