TopGreetings!

Welcome to the September newsletter. From wowing the crowds around the world at the Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony to our biggest ever Beautiful Octopus Club we've had a very busy and exciting month! 

To find out what we've been up to choose from one of the sections to the left.

Landing in London 
The Dean Rodney Singers installation opened at Southbank Centre. Over 2,000 visitors got involved by remixing the music tracks and making their own dance videos. Visit the website here to see what visitors thought of the installation.  
   

It's now set to go global as we plan to take the wonderful world of the Dean Rodney Singers on tour.  See photos from the installation here and listen to the final twenty-three tracks here.

Biggest and best!
We celebrated in style with our biggest ever Beautiful Octopus Club. Over 3,000 people joined us as we rocked the Southbank Centre.
Visitors enjoyed storming sets from Lizzie Emeh, The Fish Police and Jazztronics
   
Heart n Soul DJs kept the summer vibes alive on the riverside terrace and 
got the whole crowd dancing. What a night! See all the pictures from the club here and watch a film of the night here. 
Going for Gold!
Heart n Soul stars took to the world stage as they entertained the crowds at the London 2012 Paralympic Games. 
 
performed in front of 80,000 people at the Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony. Lizzie also closed the show with UK soul diva Beverley Knight (above). See them in action here

The Do Your Own Thing music group lit up the stage at The Beautiful Octopus Club. Aldean Blair, Isaac Palm, Sam Walker and Harry Miles from The Radical Racoons performed a set of their own songs, including an improvised jam session.  

The Do Your Own Thing group also held a party for the launch of their new film - The Mysterious Universe Party. See the film here and make sure you catch them in action at the Lord Mayor's Show on Saturday 10 November
Shalim Ali, Nicola Holley and Lilly Cook from the Media Team worked with Michelle Stannard from Poached Creative and Kai Smith to cover The Beautiful Octopus Club. They made films at the club and tweeted too! See the films  here.

Shalim (right) has started a work placement with Poached Creative. We'll also be working with the team on lots of our upcoming events - so make sure to look out for them!
