The UK is quite an exciting little place at the moment… The Jubilee just occurred – we have the Olympics coming and on top of those two (already fab) occassions, there are a few Curve based events on their way. And no matter if you’re in the North or South of England on the 7th of July – the UK has a plus event for you!
The event to go to if you’re down south? Head to London for The Fattylympics. This looks amazing. The day is being held in a Memorial Park in Central London and will involve food stalls, clothing stalls, performance, activist discussion and jovial “sports” events. For me, I think its the community element of the Fattylimpics that makes it such a draw and I love that it takes strong pride in satirising the Olympics. This event is for all men and women to attend and due to the accessible nature of this event and day, I think its the kind of atmosphere that people who attend will WANT to participate in!
The next sentence has me so excited as it’ll throw us ALL back to our teen years, because: following the Fattylympics? The UNSKINNY BOP PROM is the official afterparty, featuring: a live cover band, a photographer, slow dances, 2 disco rooms, 2 bars and whatever else the organisers can dream up between now and then. For me – this sounds unreal and seems like a fab way to run back to my gorgeous, curvy, grungy teen self!
In the North of the UK, July 7th is the date for the Curve Loving Plus North which has been buzzed about as a type of “sister” event to Plus London. Plus North will have fashion stalls, a catwalk (sponsored by Simply Be UK) and will create an opportunity for Plus Size fashionistas, brands and bloggers to come together and enjoy talking about fashion and curves. This event looks amazing, is choc-a-bloc full of sponsors and no matter where you are in the UK, anyone who loves curvy fashion should try and get along. Entry tickets cost £5.00 and include a “delegate pack” and “goody bags”.
At the moment, there are more curve based events planned for later in the year here in the UK – so keep your eyes on our Event Calendar!
