Once in a while, your brain gives you an amazing idea and stops for 2 seconds from wondering where the hell you’ve put your *insert item here*. Well last week I was starting to think about the up and coming Newton-le-Willows town show as last year I tried to vlog, however it was so wet and rainy, that I didn’t get much footage.
So in a burst of inspiration about a week ago and after watching a rather fun Miranda Sings Video, I decided to totally copy her idea and try to get people dancing. The only thing is, I don’t actually have many real life friends in N-le-W as my two best friends live in Glossop and Alabama so I had to ask the people I had been getting to know on Twitter. I expected the worst, but hoped for the best – how wrong was I!!!
I asked lots of the N-le-W peeps that I follow on Twitter as they genuinely seemed like lovely people and do you know what, they were almost ALL up for it! Which was a relief. The last things I had to add where props, as I know from experience that people feel much less self conscious if they are wearing even just a small mask or costume. So on Friday night, M and I went to Tesco to procure jokey glasses and Hawaiian Leis. Perfect.
On the day, M and I spent from 10:00 till around 15:30 walking around the show asking people to take part and of course catching up with the roped in volunteers. Everyone was such a good sport and willingly got their wiggles, shimmy and twirls on without too much cajoling – people were so much fun. The whole thing made me love N-le-W even more! Before I show you the video, you HAVE To check out the blog that Tilly over at Lavender Lemonade has posted about the show, she includes some stunning aerial photography from a special bucket list experience!
OK so without further ado… here is Newton Town Show 2016 “Can’t stop the Feeling”
Aren’t they fab??
