Crafternoon Tea Club: Be N-Ice Lolly Lovers

Crafternoon Tea Club are back spreading the love as only they can; working with the local community to create special messages about all the things we can do to be nice to people and kinder to our planet; culminating in a playful, participatory intervention artwork.

Working with Seaview Project, for people living on society’s margins, Gizmo Kids, which offers support to disadvantaged youngsters and Dementia Hastings, Crafternoon are exploring the idea of ‘meltdown’, both on an individual and a global level. The project aims to amplify the voices of these underrepresented groups and highlights the effects of climate change on our coastline.

Join the Be N-Ice Lolly Lovers procession and mobile disco, in collaboration with From Pier To Eternity illuminated bike rides, to distribute these messages and help generate a sweet ripple of goodwill across Hastings and beyond, flexing your right to party in some of Hastings most unexpected spots in the process…

Participants join at own risk. Children must be supervised by an adult at all times.

Dressing up theme: N-ice lolly lovers (arrive on wheels: bikes, boards, roller skates…)

Co-founded by Beccy McCray and Hannah Elbourne, Crafternoon Tea Club are a collective who explore participatory art combined with activism, blurring lines between artist & audience, bringing people together through the sharing of materials & ideas – and having a good time while they do it.

Crafternoon Tea Club have been commissioned by organisations such as the The Barbican, National Theatre, O N C A Gallery for Arts & Ecology, The De La Warr Pavilion, Create London and Bestival.
