Enormous colour-wheels roll through the streets of Woolwich gathering and welcoming everyone on the way. Join a promenade performance that celebrates inclusion and open-heartedness set to an epic soundtrack by composer Shri Sriram.

Founded by Artistic Director Philippe Freslon in 1986, Compagnie Off started creating small outdoor shows and has since grown into one of France's most respected outdoor companies. Last seen at GDIF in 2011 with their iconic production Les Girafes, this finale promises to be a night to remember.

Security advice

We are looking forward to welcoming you for a performance to remember. We are working with SFM Security and the local police to ensure that our events are as safe and enjoyable as possible. We would like to offer you the following advice:

1. We have Security and Stewards throughout the site and parade route wearing high visibility vests. Please feel free to approach them to report anything may be making you feel uncomfortable or is suspicious. The team have specialist training and are in radio contact with the other security and stewards. They can contact emergency services if required.

2. Please keep your valuables (including mobile phones) safe. Pickpockets can operate in large crowds.

3. If you’re attending with a group – stick together. Should one of your group become separated – please contact a steward or security team member who will be able to help you.

4. If you’re attending with a child – write your telephone number on their arm or on a wristband
