Good to Go

A party for grown-ups inspired by Mini Beast Disco‘s research play. A Composting Cabaret is a joyful landscape of performance offerings sprung from the collaborative critterdom of children’s vision and wisdom. A reflection, rekindling and re-wilding for our grown-up and maybe worn-out hearts.

Dance floor, deep dive, disco destiny.

Enjoy shows by your favourite subversive showgirl whirls Dandrogyny and Betty Grumble and friends.


This is an 18+ event.
