Kittens & Creatures!
You are hereby invited to Rumpus’ Very First Birthday Party!
*Featuring Verity Flecknell from Storm in a Teacup playing a blues set in the Ho-Down barn and leading the RUMPUS Kazoo orchestra in the Courtyard*
What a year we’ve had: a wonderful birth, a few teething problems here and there, but always a constant stream of exceptional parties, exceptional bands, exceptional DJs and exceptional performances. And now, our little creature is growing up fast. Already he’s scampering around, baring his fangs and shaking his tail, growling ferociously that it’s time for another party.
We’re going all out on this one. We’ve called in Alejandro Toledo and the Magic Tombolinos, which is about as high octane as any live band can get without setting themselves on fire. We’ve got the Cut A Shine guys for a proper Old Skool Ceilidh with dosie dos and stripping the willow and all that kinda jazz. We’ve got a Hoe Down, with a whole night of bluegrass that’ll keep you stomping. The London Digital Circus, them guys what did that thing with the Rabbits, are back – but no Rabbits this time (coz it was a bit scary and I couldn’t sleep afterwards).
On top of all that we’ve got the Supatronix guys coming down to give you a whole night’s worth of sublime breaks and beats. These guys have been winning awards for years for their breakbeat night, and they’re coming out to play with us this time.
And of course, we’ve got 6 rooms filled to the brim. DJs playing the best in Ska, BalaknBeats, Electroswing, DnB, Dubstep. Live acts and secret performances waiting for you to find them. Art exhibitions and the Rumpus Cinema.
And, most importantly of all, CAKE!!!
Put yer glad rags on and come join us for the Birthday Party to end all Birthday Parties. Expect Clowns, Fairy Princesses, Cowboys, Pirates, Monsters, Wild Creatures and Cuddly Creatures.
Come in costume, bring a Birthday Card for Rumpus or bring some cake to share for a discount on the door!
