The Alternative Village Fete at Shuffle Festival 2014

The Alternative Village Fete at Shuffle Festival 2014

We’re excited to return to Shuffle Festival with an even bigger Alternative Village Fete exploring the themes of well-being, ecology, mortality and history.

For five days, Shuffle Festival will transform Cemetery Park with an innovative programme including live music, art installations, food, a swimming pool, pop-up cinema and a community feast.

This year’s Fete line-up includes:


For over 15 years Clatteratti has been travelling the world taking our unique blend of junk and drum percussion to play for audiences in a huge variety of venues, from the middle of a Formula Ford race track in Istanbul, to a pool side in Tenerife, from the dusty streets of Dubai to a music stage in Holland, from Jordan to Sardinia, and from the Royal Albert Hall to the Olympic village. Our performers are drawn from the worlds of circus and Brazilian music and no two performances are ever the same!


Robot Relays by Exploring Senses 

At the Shuffle festival Exploring Senses will be providing a Robot Relays experience; build and decorate cardboard robot outfits then play racing and jousting games. You can also play with our cardboard Augmented Reality experiences.

Find out how you can also play with augmented reality digital media using mobile phones and tablets by visiting the Exploring Senses website.


Total Eclipse of the Head by Ella Good and Nicki Kent

Total Eclipse of The Head is an interactive performance in a mobile salon/caravan.

With a fun and informal atmosphere, it’s a space where groups can meet, chat, and have their hair done if they choose.

In our salon we create radical cuts and styles inspired by music. Choose from The Kate Bush Bush, The 80’s Power Mullet Montage, or let us crimp you back to the 90’s.

Ella Good and Nicki Kent are Bristol based artists who make contemporary performance and live art, and are members of artist-led space Residence.


Car Boot Bingo Disco from Megan Clark-Bagnalls & Jasmine Loveys

Disco Jazz & Bingo Meg bring you Carboot Disco Bingo! An interactive experience: part dance lesson, part party, part performance, part bingo. Think Donna Summer down the gala! And all coming out the boot of our dinky disco van.


Where the Wild Bits Are by Rachel Mars

What makes you furious? Where do you feel it and what do you do about it. In ‘Where The Wild Things Are’ Max runs through the house , smashes things with a hammer and ends up mastering a land of monsters.

Enter a personalised RAGE ARENA, take some choices about where to put your anger and go home with some peace of mind (or a piece of mashed up crockery)

The Bug Museum

An interactive entomological exhibition exploring the importance of insects in our ecosystem. Presented by entomologist Lucia Chmurova and curated in conjunction with zoologist Dr Tim Cockerill.


Search Party vs Tower Hamlets

Search Party challenge you, the people of Tower Hamlets, to a marathon game of Ping Pong.

You are invited to compete against Search Party; to represent Tower Hamlets and support each other through thick and thin. We want a good clean fight, no biting, no diving, no tackling from behind – and the umpires decision is final.


Den City with 815 Agency 

Wanted: Junior and Senior den-makers. Join us to build a city of dens inspired by the towering structures of the Russian Constructivists. Over the day we’ll make a bustling network of dens, using ropes, pegs, fabric and a good imagination.
