Leeds-born Richard lost his wife Pat to Alzheimer's disease in December 2016, the same month as Louis' mother Johannah passed away following a battle with leukemia. After hearing that Richard had a 'bucket list' of exciting and once-in-a-lifetime things he wants to experience, Louis went to meet him at his Yorkshire home. 

The two men bonded over their mutual love of singing, which led to one item from the list being checked off. Louis then introduced Richard to the crowd at Sheffield Arena, where the 83-year-old former professional singer delivered a showstopping rendition of 'Nessun Dorma'. Louis also joined Richard as he drove a racing car at Brands Hatch, co-piloted a helicopter and rode a rollercoaster. Richard even tried his hand as a tattoo artist by adding to Louis’ collection of body art. 

As part of their adventures together, Louis and Richard are encouraging donations to Cancer Research and the Alzheimer’s Society and Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

ABOUT MIGHTY HOOPLA

Mighty Hoopla was founded in 2016 by the collective minds of Jamie Tagg, Glyn Fussell (East Creative/ Sink The Pink), Sean Rowley (Guilty Pleasures), Ally Wolf (The Grand) and John Burgess (Bugged Out).

Originally starting it’s life at Butlins in 2016, Mighty Hoopla then moved to Victoria Park a year later before finding its home in Brockwell Park in 2018. Now lead by the team at East Creative, an Warholian umbrella of LGBTQ+ artists and events including Sink The Pink and Savage Disco, have given Mighty Hoopla something they felt was missing in London.

Working with artists, creatives, designers and most importantly the community, East Creative ain to bring everyone together under the wider manifesto of inclusivity, equality, and change. “This is,” says Tagg, “a new ecosystem for LGBTQ+ events. We had to invent it because no one else had.”

And at a time when the watchwords for London nightlife over the last few years have been closure and prohibition, Mighty Hoopla appears to mark – almost entirely by accident – A Real Moment. “Everything we’ve been working towards,” says Fussell, “felt like it came to fruition at last year’s Mighty Hoopla. It was the happiest day of my life.” The mission now, then, is to push even further in against conservative convention. To make a space in which the margins take a rightful march towards the mainstream, cascading from the night-time into the sun-kissed day of a London festival. In a bleak world, the Peacocks will always win.

TICKETS / SOCIALS

Subject to license Mighty Hoopla will take place in Brockwell Park on June 8th 2019. Early-bird tickets are on sale now at: www.mightyhoopla.com
