At 9am on Saturday 8th October, Sainsbury’s in Chislehurst burst into life when local performing arts students from All the Arts Theatre School performed a flash mob dance spectacle to Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
Over 30 young people from the local performing arts school surprised morning shoppers by taking over the shop to showcase their dance skills! It initially looked like the store had been overrun by a group of young “hoodies” but these young people are hardworking students who wanted to show the people of Chislehurst their spooky moves!
The central stars of the video are 17 year olds, Riana Morrison-Ekirnon and Callum Lyons.
John Woods, the manager of the Sainsbury’s Chislehurst branch also got into the spirit of things helping to mime the infamous haunting interlude near the end. Mog the Cat from last year’s Sainsbury Christmas ad also had a starring role!
And why? They will be performing at Visit Chislehurst’s Halloween Pumpkin Hunt on Friday 28th October from 1-3pm. Whilst most tickets are sold out, the final batch of tickets go on sale tomorrow morning at 11am!!!

Tamsyn Clark, Director of Visit Chislehurst said “We are delighted to have been able to work with All the Arts & Sainsbury’s on this fantastic video which is helping to promote our Pumpkin Hunt and the wonderful town of Chislehurst. The students have loved rehearsing for this event and we look forward to seeing them perform it again at the Pumpkin Hunt on Friday 28th October 2016.”
Visit Chislehurst owes a huge debt of gratitude to All the Arts who not only choregraphed this performance but who also filmed and edited this video. We would also like to thank the lovely John Woods, Manager of our local branch of Sainsbury’s who allowed us to make this happen and who really went over and above with his own stellar performance. Last but no means least, we would like to thank our event sponsors – Linklater & Warren Opticians, The Queen’s Head and Cannon Cars without whom this event would not be possible.
