Charivari 2020 - Let's Dance Film

18 July 2020

2020 is the year that Strange Cargo's Charivari Day carnival happened indoors. 1000 free carnival kits with materials and instructions were posted out, with hundreds of groovy movers learning our carnival dance routine, choreographed by Folkestone Dance and demonstrated by Randolph and Eliy Matthews. 200 people sent us their dance videos. CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE FILM with edited clips from each dance video brought together into this exhilarating, short, but oh so sweet Charivari Day for 2020. This is a loving dedication to all the fabulous people who have joined in this year, and all the equally wonderful Charivari family who have been dancing on the streets of Folkestone with us since 1997.

Big thanks to film editor Owen Fisher and to the whole Charivari 2020 team including Hannah Rushforth, Ruby Bolton, Scarlett Rickard, Emily Tull, Zo Defferary, Richard Orasinski, Rosie Smith, Isaac Bolton, Bid Tophill, Lowri Whiskerd, Sian Bolton, Siobhan Bolton, Dan Addison, Lucy Thane and Sophie DeVooght at Folkestone Dance, Randolph and Eliy Matthews, Batala Portsmouth. And of course to everyone who joined in and danced!
