This Weekend: the Holiday Summer Camp at the Old Vic Tunnels

For those who want to unleash their inner child -and still have a penchant for a bit of candy floss or naughty mischief- the fun-filled Old Vic Tunnels holiday camp should prove just perfect. Back for the second time, after a sell-out success last Easter, this rather quirky event -part of the Veuve Clicquot Season- will mix some (kind-of) sporty camp activities with some more mischievous ones- such as an adult Punch & Judy show and a school disco with no 9pm curfew. Bring it on.

Ah! To be a kid again, playing silly games, having a first crush, stuffing ourselves with candy floss and ice cream, but with no parent or carer to tell us what to do, no early bedtime curfew and a few jugs of Pimm’s thrown in… That sounds rather good, doesn’t it?

If you find such a prospect tempting,  the cavernous -but oh so versatile- tunnels under Waterloo station will get transformed from tonight until Sunday into a holiday camp, with indoor crazy golf, badminton and basketball courts, a ping-pong table, a bouncy castle, trampolines and some wet sponge throwing- amongst other activities.

For those who favour their inner adolescent, there will be an adult Punch & Judy show, jugs of Pimm’s to share on the meadow and live music from acoustic musicians playing around the campfire, with DJ Anna Greenwood spinning old disco beats until the small hours.

Thursday 21-Sunday 24 June 2012, £15 ticket
