Alternative Village Fete: White Night Festival, Brighton

Alternative Village Fete: White Night Festival, Brighton

As a part of the acclaimed Alternative Village Fete Tour 2011, visiting The National Theatre Watch this Space Festival and Tattershall Castle Lincolnshire we were delighted to present the Fete in Brighton City Centre. The event formed part of the renowned city-wide, all-night White Night festival, themed around Utopias.

A night time setting gave license to delve into the darker side of folk, so you’d find everything you’d expect at a fete but with a nocturnal edge…Engaging the most exciting artists and creatives from the city and beyond, visitors to the stage and stalls encountered experiences that took them from deco tea rooms, swing dancing and vintage glamour makeovers to pop video routines, food flinging olympics, dark midnight rituals and everything in between! With ghouls, vamps, kitsch popstars, rocka-hillbillies, retro hepkats and kittens, visitors were invited to express their twilight egos and dress up for the occasion…
