From 8-10pm, ACE Dance and Music present Illuminate.

You are invited to delve into the carnival spirit as ACE Dance and Music, the UK’s top black-led dance company, invites you to experience the extravaganza of Carnival in full swing. Get up, feel the energy and join in with the spectacular sights and sounds of the Caribbean.

Hype men, DJs and large cast dance moments will bring undeniable energy through their performance Illuminate.

Carnival is an entire mind, body and spirit experience - and ACE will bring the party in one unforgettable celebration.

On 30 July at 6.20pm and 10pm, don't miss Amaechi, a unique performance on the 3x3 Practice Court, telling the story of John Amaechi, the first NBA player to come out as gay, in his own words. 

Plus look out for all of our daily activities: Each day at 2:15pm, Pride House will host interviews on our Beacon Stage with queer athletes participating across the Games. Whilst just scratching the surface on their experience, we want to offer a visible platform to celebrate the athletes and the work Pride House are doing during the Games. 

Take time to explore our Spaghetti Junction inspired brand new inflatable art installation, watch live sports from across the games on our big screen, play table tennis against a robot, stumble on circus performances and watch a host of brand new films, music videos and digital commissions screening throughout the day, including a fantastic new digital visual spectacular every day at 6pm. 

We’re also playing host to daily performances from acclaimed dance-circus ensemble Motionhouse, who will be bringing back the unique and spectacular globe from our Festival opening show, Wondrous Stories. Plus look out for a living green space within the heart of Smithfield, created by the National Trust and featuring more than 70 young trees, colourful benches and hammocks, the installation provides somewhere visitors can connect with the natural world, relax and play in between the Games’ high-energy events.
