La Tomatina! game-show at Kazimier

TomalocoTomalocoALL together now: “If you're going to the Kaz-i-mierrrrr, be sure to wear... tomatoes in your hair.....”

OK, maybe not. 

For one midsummer night only, on Saturday June 22, a little bit of Valencia comes to Liverpool when the Kaz stages its own version of La Tomatina – the world's favourite food fight. 

"Tomaloco" is part of the club's annual Krunk Fiesta: three stages, 25 acts and 12 hours of marching bands, bells and whistles – and it's not even King Billy's Day. 

935541_10152089955091917_842516920_NTomato headActs include Renegade Brass Band, Bobby Conn, Melt Yourself Down, Dogshow, Lunar Modular, Harlequin Dynamite Marching Band, Calendar Lads, White Blackula, Edgar Jones, We Are Animal, Other Earth, Swinging Bricks, Alphamale Tea Party, The Otherness, Sheepy, even Aigburth Cricket Club's Merseysippi Jazz Band are in there.

Flamenco dancing will be provided by Mimi Amore and tumbling acrobats Get Oop La will be providing other japes.

Alas, not all will get pelted with tomatoes, for the fruity fun is part of the Tomaloco gameshow and contestants will be chosen by lottery.

In common with many happenings at the Kaz, they weren't giving too much away,  but Fiesta-goers are encouraged to wear tomato-based costumery. Failing that, don't come kitted out in your Sunday best. It is going to get messy.

appropriately anyway
Do expect “Europe's craziest spectacle - an audacious test of courage and nerve. Contestants will  be plunged into the Arena Tomatina to fight. At stake, the grand prize: the “Golden Jamón.” 

Here's how to enter: Buy a ticket for the fiesta (link at the end of this item).  Upon completion of purchase email services@thekazimier.co.uk with your paypal receipt to be entered into a lottery to become a contestant. The first 50 purchasers of hard copy tickets from Kazimier or Mello Mello will also enter the draw.

Lucky finalists will be notified in advance of the event with further information. 

It's a midsummer night's scream.
