Event Description

An inclusive circus troupe, Cirque Nova Sports, whose performers include people with learning or physical disabilities, will top the bill at a free festival and activity day celebrating the opening of the Paralympic Games later this month.

Called the PARAde Festival, the free celebration offers an entertaining and fun-packed day where visitors can try their hand at a variety of sports and activities, including: cycling for the disabled; athletics, including wheelchair racing; football for deaf children; wheelchair basketball; special needs swimming; gymnastics; tennis and even drama. 

As well as sporting activities the festival brings a number of live street acts to the centre's car park as part of the Greater London Authority's Showtime Festival. 

Inside the leisure centre visitors can have a go at a range of events and sports activities, with experts on hand to offer tips and encouragement.


Events at the PARAde Festival include:

  • a workshop organised by Cirque Nova Sports
  • exercise demonstrations organised by Sanjuro Martial Arts and Age UK Haringey
  • giant inflatable Olympic and Paralympic mascots outside the centre
  • free sports and exercise sessions for people with disabilities
