FRIDAY NIGHT is 'Black n White' with classic silent movies brought to life by soundtracks provided by infamous DJs.  

THE MIRRORED FOREST: Friday and Saturday Night Parties with funk fuelled swinging beats.

The LITTLE MARKET THEATRE STAGE, with daytime beats, side show antics, and off the cuff performances.

Saturday night the main stage hosts the The Great Tea Dance.  Get ready to push forward in time while remaining in the past.  Lets party like its 1984!!  A dance lesson to rival them all!  Come dressed to the nines from any era you like, the classier the better, and learn something old as we get our running man on and pop to the beats.

Your chance to shine and win the much coveted "Tea Cup of Greatness" (Its a real thing.. well.. it will be..)
