Down at the Bottom of the Garden...

Friday 16th & Saturday 17th May 2014
7 – 11pm 

Strange things are happening in the building as the invisible boundary between our world and that of the fairies magically collide. Their powerful influence will be felt over the two nights at our Late Shows event this month, so be on your guard!  

These mythical super natural beings will be helping us celebrate the 420th anniversary of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. Our merry band of seductive fairies will be trying to trap any unsuspecting visitors into their woodland realm. There'll be other temptations on offer with Tipsy Pud bringing their old style bar with a selection of alcoholic puddings and Olivia Rose Bakery creating a mountain of delicious fairy cakes.

Fairies love creativity and so do we, so we've Titania's Tree where you can write and pin your own Fibonacci sonnet or decorate your own fairy-themed Raku with Muddy Fingers Pottery

You can also transform yourself into a fairy character in our fairy photo booth and share the experience with your friends on social media. We'll choose our favourite photo each night and will give away a personalised fairy block for you to keep. For a chance to win, come along and share your image on Instagram or Twitter using #fairyselfie or #thelateshows. 

As ever, all of the studios will be open so take the opportunity to meet all of the artists and designers, buy or commission work from them direct and find out about their magical hidden world.
