17:00 @hairdresserontour: Sets, marcel waves and pin curls with Lyndell Mansfield
Always wanted to master retro hairstyles? We've called in Lyndell Mansfield to help us perfect our lockdown locks with demonstrations on sets, marcel waves and pin curls. Hailing from Australia, Lyndell moved to London in 1998 and since then has built up a huge roster of clients: Kate Moss, Beth Ditto, Paloma Faith, M.I.A... we could go on! Having styled for some of the biggest fashion magazines out there, we know you're in for a luxury treat with Lyndell.
Best-pal duo Ekkah ooze class with their heavenly vocals and dreamy synths and sax sounds. Definitely one to add to your playlists for beautiful summertime vibes - just what we need right now. We are so excited to be able to see the dream team live on our Instagram feed!
18:00 @sophiescott: Neuroscientist Sophie Scott explains why jewellery makes us happy
Sophie Scott is the Director of University College London's Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience. She's researched the brain basis of human vocal behaviour, from speech and laughter to beatboxing and poetry as well as being a Tatty Devine regular. She'll be giving a talk on why jewellery makes us so happy and she should know, she's racked up quite a Tatty collection over the years!
Woo! Bringing a whole load of sweet Cali sunshine from this kaleidoscope of fun yet serious talent, have you seen her wonderful fruity videos? (And her pooch) Definitely not to be missed, this performance will catapult you out of your quarantine blues.
Marawa the amazing! Hula hooping, world record-breaking, high-heeled skating champion of the land! We're super excited to have her on board, having trained at the National Institute of Circus Arts in Australia specialising in Swinging Trapeze, she's now set her sights on conquering the world of roller skating and hoops and we cannot support her enough on this quest. Join Marawa for a 30-minute stretch and hoop session, all you need is a space at home to take part and a hoop if you have one... but you can 100% follow along without a hoop too. Score!
19:30 @girlimusic: Live Music from Girli
Ever heard of Girli? If not, we're glad to be the ones to blast her onto your radar! A powerful and refreshing force of straight-talking, no-nonsense truth of everyday life and battles. Witty and painfully honest, Girli's impressive performing abilities have seen her draw crowds of up to 1000 in London. We're super excited to see how she performs her unique and outspoken approach to pop music live on our Instagram!
