The Bridgeton Games

Velodromes? Stadiums?
The streets of Bridgeton are our sports ground!
Who will become a champion?

The culmination of a unique collaboration between Dance House, Mile End Out of School Care and Connect 2 Out of School led to the creation first ever Bridgeton Games. Inspired by their initial residency, Aby and David collaborated with the young people to create an alternative commonwealth games for Bridgeton, taking the urban games of the area and in turn creating a unique sporting event in which to celebrate new champions.

The young people of Bridgeton were invited to join the out of school care groups on the 31st of July to participate in the games and to join in the raising of the Bridgeton flag that they had created.
