Feethams Announce Headline Act for Launch Party – Mr Wilsons Second Liners Brass Band

06th April - 06th April


Following the extensive redevelopment work at Feethams, Darlington’s popular leisure and entertainment hub, we’re excited to announce the acts that will entertain the crowds at the Our New Look Launch Event taking place at the complex from 11.00 am until 3.00 pm on Saturday 6th April.

Feethams are excited to announce the exciting programme of FREE entertainment. The leisure hub is bringing Second Lining to Darlington with Mr Wilson’s Second Liners Brass Band headlining the day. Mr Wilsons are revolutionary genre-bashers who knock traditional Second Lining sideways, opting for upbeat dance tracks over traditional hymns. Hot-stepping out in uniformed style, they channel the spirit of the 24-hour party people, guaranteed to get audiences dancing wherever they go.

Second Lining is a quintessential New Orleans art form: following a band to enjoy the music, marching and dancing, twirling parasols and waving handkerchiefs. It is a full on street intervention. We encourage everyone to come along and get caught up in the commotion and be part of the Second Line in Darlo.

As well as Mr Wilsons we have a Guinness World Record breaker Axe Juggler Chris Marley and Betty Balloon as seen on Britain’s Got Talent.

The day will be filled with music as well as local dance performances from the Joanne Lowe Dance Academy, the Texas Toe Tappers and Stage Darlington.

In addition, there will be a range of activities to watch, enjoy and take part in including; Roaming Street Performers, Face painting, tasting opportunities and the ‘Spin to Win’ competition giving people the chance to win some fantastic prizes.
