Friends and family of the renowned filmmaker and two time Cornwall Film Festival director Laura ‘Loz’ Hardman, who died last summer, have rallied together to pull together a unique, one day live event –Lozapalooza.
Lozapalooza will take place on Sunday, February 21 at the Acorn Arts Centre in Penzance.
The day is split into two sections -between noon and 3.30pm there will be a family tea party, featuring games, workshops, cakes and treats. Entertainment will be in the shape of Magician Betty Stoggs and a puppet show by Penwith-based Squashbox theatre. Tickets are £5 per child and a donation from adults.
The evening event runs from 7pm to midnight and will be an eclectic extravaganza of music, comedy and live performance. Performers include Mary Ann Bloomfield, Trifle Gathering productions, Cscape Dance Company, Dalla, Ruarri Joseph, Damian Edwards, DJ Calamity James and members of o-region, Miracle and Kneehigh theatre. Several of the acts are especially created for the event and will not be seen before or after anywhere else!
Tickets for this part of the event are £10 and available from Lozapalooza website or the Acorn Box office: 01736 365520.
The evening also features a raffle and auction with a host of amazing prizes.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to The Max and Jasper Trust Fund, which has been established to provide financial support for Loz’s two young sons.
“Loz was an exceptional person, a real one off,” said Simon Harvey part of the festivals organizing team. ‘She was dedicated to the arts sector in Cornwall, through her work with the Cornwall Film Festival, FEAST and as an individual film maker. She made a huge impact on so many people -she is sorely missed. We wanted to come together and do something suitably fun, unique and irreverent in dedication to her, while raising some money to help support her sons.”
Tickets for this one off event are limited and guaranteed to sell fast so book early to avoid disappointment.
