October 23, 2013, 10:39 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- As London prepares to host the world premiere of the Hunger Games: Catching Fire, eager fans can get in on the action with The Robin Collective's brilliantly bonkers Hunger Party Games. LondonTown.com talks exclusively to the events and experimental food company's founder Robin Fegan to find out what the nefarious Game Makers have in store.
Please can you tell us a bit more about the Hunger Party Games.
Robin Fegan: In celebration of the release of the second Hunger Games film, The Robin Collective and Indeedy Incorporated are holding a unique party at the Bethnal Green Working Men's Club on 15 November. [The singer, presenter, DJ and] our own queen of the Capitol Jess Indeedy will reap contestants to fight in this year's Hunger Party Games.
Will the contestants be shot at with arrows and forced to forage for their own food?
RF: Not exactly. Every ticket holder's name will be put into the reaping. Throughout the night, people will be selected to compete in murderous parlour games, and cannon blasts will salute the fallen.
In between games, the victors will be celebrated and there will be dancing. Because this is a Quarter Quell, the last game of the night will see all the victors compete one last time.
Yikes, can you give us a hint as to what the murderous party games might involve?
The Game Makers are currently busy coming up with the most devious and evil games imaginable like Musical Killing Chairs and Pass the Parcel... of death!
How should contestants dress?
They are encouraged to wear outfits representative of their district. For example, glasses without lenses for the Shoreditch district, or obnoxious red trousers for the Chelsea districts. The reaping will be random so we won't favour any districts.
What made you decide to hold a Hunger Games-themed event?
We're big fans of the books and Katniss' struggle against the Capitol is very much a metaphor for our struggle against non-Hunger Games-themed events.
How would you sum up the event in 10 words?
RF: 'May the odds be ever in your favour,' Caesar Flickerman.
The Hunger Party Games will be held at the Bethnal Green Working Men's Club on 15 November from 9pm to 2am. Tickets are available from www.therobincollective.co.uk.
