Secret Sunrise x Faraway event
Introducing an exciting collaboration between Faraway and Secret Sunrise London, happening this summer.
Join us at 9,30am on Saturday 15th June in Hilly Fields Stone Circle (SE4 1LD) for a special Secret Sunrise x Faraway event. We’ll be escaping our comfort zones, dancing outside in the sunshine (fingers crossed) and whisking ourselves far, far away with some uplifting, travel-inspired tunes!
Tickets start at under £8 for children and £12 for adults, and there are only 100 available. Click the button below to get your hands on yours!
What to expect
You'd be hard pushed to find a happier, more energising way to start your weekend! You'll arrive at Hilly Fields, be handed a pair of wireless headphones and spend the next hour being guided through a unique experience combining dance, movement, meditation and JOY - all silent disco style.
Note - in June, the sun rises in London at around 4.45am. We'll be maintaining the spirit of the sunrise, but dancing at the more sociable time of 9.30am.
We’ll be dancing for an hour, so you should bring some water and wear clothes you can move in (ideally something bright that brings a smile to your face). With any luck, we'll have beautiful sunshine - but if it’s forecast to rain, we’ll be dancing outdoors anyway. So bring along a waterproof jacket, or get wet!
The experience is suitable for everyone (even the most shy person can't help being swept up in the energy!) and children are very welcome. Come alone or bring a group - it's up to you.
We experienced the magic of Secret Sunrise for the first time earlier this year, when we were living in Cape Town (if you're headed that way, don't forget to check out our mini guide). Waking up at 6am on a Saturday morning to dance outside with a group of strangers sounded a bit mad - especially as two Londoners with four left feet - but in the spirit of embracing new experiences, that's exactly what we found ourselves doing.
Without giving too much away, it was freeing, and fun, and a timely reminder to stop taking life so seriously and stressing over things that don’t matter. It also gave us a little burst of the same energy we felt running our Malawi escape last year, and sharing an amazing, immersive experience with a group of new friends. Afterwards, we walked away on a high and didn’t stop beaming all weekend.
It turns out Margot, the founder of Secret Sunrise London, had a similar experience in Cape Town a year before ours. She went along to a couple of dance sessions, fell in love with the movement - which originated in Zambia - and decided to train as an instructor and bring the experience to us stressed-out Londoners. (Alongside completing her Economics degree, as you do...)
We got in touch with her and found we shared each other's love for embracing new experiences, making time to connect with yourself and others, and doing things that energise you. Next thing you know, we're making plans to collaborate back in London, on a magical, travel-themed Secret Sunrise x Faraway event. Come and dance with us...
