4.30pm – 7pm Castellers of London:
The Castellers will be running a couple of workshops from 4.30pm for anyone who’d like to try being part of a human tower. This is where your climbing skills will come handy. It looks like a lot of fun so sign up on the day to have a go!
For almost 300 years, the people of Catalonia have been congregating in plaças to try to build the highest possible human tower through a peculiar combination of balance, strength and outright fearlessness. "Some people sing or play sports, but building towers is a mix of lots of things: it's half-culture and half-sport but all bound up with our traditions and our identity as a people".
