This is straight after Dao Lu’s Tai Chi and Kung Fu for families sessions at Ridgeway Park Chingford, 14.00 – 15.15. It will be such a busy day for Dao Lu! Some of us will be walking directly from Ridgeway Park to the Chingford Village Festival, so feel free to combine both.
Performers: please meet at 3.45pm at Back Green
Volunteers: we need as many stewards as possible to keep our performance area safe from youngsters running across. Please wear uniform so we appear as members of the same group.
Uniform: Normal uniform (white for Tai Chi, orange/grey for Kung Fu (boys/men) red for Kung Fu (girls/women). If you do not have uniform, a second option is the Dao Lu or Shaolin Daolu T-shirt (or any other white top) and black (or any other dark colour) trousers, and trainers.
Please use public transport where possible. Bus Routes: 97, 179, 212, 397, 444, 505, N38. Nearest British Rail Station: Chingford (10 minutes walk).
