A dance to celebrate our rightful place on land at an acoustic rave set in the wild beauty of Pennington Flash nature reserve

About this event

Event Details

Idle Women are planning a stadium for the future - a living stadium conceived, engineered and hand built by and for women.

Throughout July, women from across the UK will gather in fields and underpasses to dance the stadium into existence at site specific women only raves.

Join us on Sun 10th July in the wild beauty of Pennington Flash as we host an event for all women to come together for an acoustic rave created with brass and drums. We will be dancing rain or shine!

You can bring your own drums to join in, dance or simply come along to enjoy the experience of good company and live music in a beautiful safe space. We will be dancing rain or shine.

This event is part of the Women's Euro's 2022.

About Stadium for the Future (If I can't dance I don't want to be part of your revolution)

Idle Women are planning a stadium for the future - a living stadium conceived, engineered and hand built by and for women. Not a concrete monolith but a stadium to re-imagine environmental recovery and reciprocity, a self-sustaining ecosystem of women's doing, creating, training, playing and manifesting a different world.

During and as part of the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 football championship in July, women from across the UK will gather in fields and underpasses to dance the stadium into existence at site specific women only raves.

Coordinated with community groups, older women, activists, musicians and DJs, Stadium for the Future will culminate in a sound piece which will broadcast until the stadium build is complete.

Stadium for the Future celebrates and makes place for all women along the canal networks that connect the #WEURO2022 locations - an underpass in Milton Keynes, Pennington Flash Nature reserve, beside the river Thames in Hounslow and a community sports centre in Brent. Amplifying women's essential role in solving the social and environmental challenges we face as a global community.
