Alice – Rintintin Theatre Company
Lawd above me old china!
She’s a 1950’s London gal through & through our Alice lives in a candy coloured world. With ginger beehive, pins what go on forever, not forgetting her pink and fluffy little dog “Regina”
50’s music blares from her wireless, as she takes us for a trip down memory lane into bygone days of jiving, bobby socks & and too much hairspray…
Rock around the clock with Alice and learn the mash potato, Maryland jive, and the jitterbug stroll in her impromptu dance lessons.
She’s London’s answer to Sandy & Rizzo, Grease is the word, innit?

Kitsch In Sync
Kitsch in Sync is London‘s most fun loving a-cappella choir. We specialise in performing hit songs mainly from the 1980s as you’ve never heard them before. Why? Because the majority of our songs are arranged specially for us by our ridiculously talented in house music team.
"In KiS (as we‘re known to our friends) we’ve really put the emphasis on fun - and our audiences relate to this. As a result we’ve performed at festivals, events and celebrations all over London and people often ask us back for more. Plus we sing all your favourite 80s/90s and 00s songs - what more could you want?"

We produce a big summer show and a Christmas pantomime every year and pride ourselves in putting on high-quality productions but also maintaining a strong focus on our local community.

For more information, please check out our website: www.quayplayers.org.uk

Closing the Community Stage this year we have The Homing, joining us once more.
The Homing play genre-bending original music that can’t decide if it’s folk, country, folk-rock, country-rock, alt-country (etc) - but it is catchy, singalong tunes about real life, sung by the amazing Dani Somerside. Oasis’ producer Stuart Epps, who also produced their first single, thinks they sound like Fleetwood Mac, and they’ve been trying to shake off the comparison ever since.
12.00 – 12.45
As a brass and wind musician and teacher Ann-Marie Atkins wanted to put together a group with all of these instruments in mind. And so the band was formed: a group of players and friends passionate about playing live music with or without the need of amplification. We play soul, funk, jazz, reggae, afrobeat, calypso and everything else in between!
We are regulars on the race circuit, having played at the Hackney, Oxford and British 10k runs, plus the Henley-In-Times, festivals, Dorchester-On-Thames and Rickmansworth Waterways Festivals.
