LONG VERSION: ............................................................................................................. leap year n. 1. A year in the Gregorian calendar having 366 days, with the extra day, February 29, intercalated to compensate for the quarter-day difference between an ordinary year and the astronomical year. 2. An intercalary year in a calendar. .............................................................................................................

For one night only SUNDAY~FUNDAY celebrates the occurrence of a magical moment that happens but once every four years, a mysterious and momentous day to celebrate without need for patriotism, territorialism or clouded by religious murkiness. Leap into our leap-day party and live out your alternate desires.

Maxi More and her fabulous friends will be joined by Project Rage Queen, a Los Angeles-based collective of radical queer multi-media artists, as well as a host of other local performance artists and party goers. Together they will equip you with all you need for your journey and assist you in creating and becoming a celebration, transitioning through the normative surface, allowing you to be reborn the other side.

In one special evening we acknowledge and exalt the divine passage our mother earth is making around our sun, whilst she too dances towards her unstoppable destiny on a road we can barely understand, but have grown to know as "time". For it is upon this very eve, that we are gifted a bonus day. A leap-day that allows us all to leap from the normal and drab to the supernatural and carnivalesque.

It is this night that disrupts all others, it blurs out all expected and previous existences. Everything we took as everlasting and unchanging is now gone and for a few short hours, we live beyond our previous selves, on the other side.

MIRROR~WORLD

SUNDAY~FUNDAY invites all 0thers and underlings into the belly of VFD on this special evening to participate in this astronomical carnival and give a big, fabulous and FUN welcome to this day like no other. Come and dance yourselves into a frenzy, allow pioneering performers to transport you into a fantasy, mingle amongst curious, and queer creatures, and fill yourself up to the brim with FUN.

You are encouraged most importantly to have FUN: come dressed as yourself in a parallel dimension, equipped with fantastical time-travelling tools. Turn yourself inside out, wear your hat on your feet and shoes on your head. Learn to talk backwards. Sdrawkcab klat ot nrael!!!

Entry price is a mere £5, which covers the travel costs of going through to the other side and returning safely. Magical drinks specials will be on offer as well as light refreshments and heavy entertainment, all night long!

ALTERNATIVE VERSION

SUNDAY~FUNDAY was born from a desire to have a fun, queer-centric Sunday night parties in Dalston. Bored and frustrated by mass-consumed weekend and holiday culture, SUNDAY~FUNDAY uses imaginative and fantastical themes to thinly veil our true desire to simply create a queer space, open to all to come and celebrate life and all its wonderful expressions. If you’d like to get involved, whether to perform, DJ, help decorate the space, take pictures or anything, we would love you to get in touch with us! Running for the last six months at Vogue Fabrics Dalston, SUNDAY~FUNDAY happens intermittently, turning your glum Sunday nights into FUN and unexpected adventures.
