They had CDs of the music for sale on a stall, along with T-shirts. If you hunt around the relevant sites you'll probably find more about that.

It took the organisers Artichoke 3 years to put it all together including raising the funding - 1.5 million 70% of that was from the arts council. The show was supposed to happen last september but was cancelled due to the bombings.

I did hear some noises from people moaning about ther money spent but on the back of the event was a fundraising do in aid of deprived kids - The guests were rich business types 9 million was raised .

As someone who works in street theatre I was enthralled by the show the vision behind it and most of all the sense of community in `London with people hanging out - actually talking to each other and the sheer joyfulness of the event. It also showed me that money is available for street arts - if you have the vision and the will to create shows.

If you want a copy of the soundtrack , I suggest you contact artichoke
artichoke@artichokeproductions.co.uk

They also may know where the show goes next.

Great pictures Sean.

My feet are still sore

I would rather assume that all kinds of negotiations had to be gone through to allow them to put on the show. Including digging up the road quite extensively.

Quite extraordiary. My camera didn't work for the occasion, but nomatter - there are (quite literally) thousands of pictures on flickr - here are just some of them

One of the best things about it was that somehow it escaped the plague of commercial sponsorship - these days you'd expect that it would have been the Natwest Elephant, or the Coca-Cola Elephant, instead of the Sultans's Elephant.

Brilliant.

Sorry I can't make it.

I'll have to settle for the In-Sultan Elephants in Congress here in Washington DC. Not to mention the Donkey-Hoteys who only seem able to successfully "tilt" with them in the pinball sense.

More than enough Big-Scaly Non-Prescription Spectacles to last me for a good mis-spell, I suppose.....

But thanks for telling me, anyway.
