Sunday Assembly

Last year this was for some people the most amazing thing they did all weekend.  We had laughter, tears, joy, games and some great music...... if you'd love to celebr8 life then this is worth getting up for. Life, its incredible when you stop to think of it.  Your chance of being here is infinitesimally small, yet here you are in all your unique glory.  There isn't another you and the likelihood of their being another is even smaller than the chance of you being here at all. In the busyness of our lives it's easy to get caught

DJ mattcatt has been spinning tunes in various formats since 1985. A veteran of London's alternative club and festival party culture as well as numerous events around the world. He developed his own Global sound from the experience of walking round festivals and hearing many genres and styles all melting into one party soundtrack. A typical set can include chunks of funk, roots, disco, rap, vintage, jazz, gypsy, afro-beat, latin, rock, rhythm & blues, mash-up and certainly the odd cheesy classic. DJ Mattcatt will be taking up the silent disco. https://www.mixcloud.com/mattcatt/silent-disco-mix-festival8-2017/ https://www.mattcatt.com/home/dj-mattcatt

Silent Disco

The Silent Disco enables the music to go on later and is a really great experience to try.  Each year it draws a bigger and bigger crowd and is as much a spectator as well as participatory experience.    If you've been before you know what surprising fun it really is. We will have 3 DJ's mixing a variety of sounds so you can switch between the channels and pick your groove. Its a very amusing experience to see the different tempo dances going on along side by side as well as the odd enthusiastic sing along! See you
