Amazing what can be achieved of 3 hours sleep. Turns out Clapham Common is quite the war zone at 2.30 in the morning. With 4 police cars, 6 coppers and some lacerated, drunk sapiens using my van as a landmark, it was far from the ideal resting conditions I had hoped for my night before SlackLondon 2014.
For those of you in London this August looking to get some slackline action under your belt, look no further than SlackLondon – a free family festival of balance for all interests and abilities.
“The UK’s largest slackline festival returns for its fourth year. On the 16th of August from noon to eight the now iconic Clapham Common rigging spot will once again be hosting this truly unique gathering.”
I remember how fun it was to take part in all the games when I was a Beaver, and later on a Cub. Needless to say all the up and coming slacklining stars of the future were just as excited to find two slacklines to play on, for the 8th Holborn Scout Group Community Day!
Wow! What an awesome weekend for slacklining in London – Saturday 14th April was the official launch day for SlackClapham; a free slacklining club held weekly on Clapham Common. I’ve only been living in London for 4 weeks, but with a passion to provide a balance outlet for the local community and some help from slackers the world over, I have managed to get one club up and running quickly.
