Welcome, Creatures!

To the magical, mystical and musical world of Rumpus!

Tickets and full information here

Imagine the bastard child of Pokemon Go and an ancient grimoire spread across 7 rooms of the best live music and most delectable DJs.

But this time, you are the Creatures.  Find your inner magical beast and bring it to the party! Collect as many other Creatures as possible. Then set them to battle each other; create a mini-society or just buy them all a drink.

You are the hunters and the hunted!

Tickets and full information here

We would like to announce that, following the unprecedented success of our panda breeding programme, we are expanding into unicorns. Please do not be alarmed if you happen upon a burly and dashing unicorn hunter. It is all part of our benevolent plan. We aim to save the species by providing a safe place for them to replenish their numbers.

We would like a reassure all Creatures there will be no pandas at this event. The Panda does not feature in world of magic, neither is it a known musical rhythmic device.

Go on!  Invite your friends on Facebook!

Dress Code

Whilst we are loathe to enforce a dress code, we are duty bound to express that it would be singularly inappropriate for any pandas to attend this event.

Pert pixies, bouffant bass beats, positively no pandas, flamboyant phoenixes, quiversome quavers, daring drum-beats, definitely no pandas, mambo-ing minims, bedazzled basilisks, scintillating syncopation, pouting puffskeins, badass back-beats, tumescent trolls, absolutely no pandas at all, shimmering semi-breves, curvaceous chimeras, bootilicious break-beats, happy hoo-hoos, glamorous grindylows, coruscating crotchets, saucy sasquatches, zero pandas.
