While many towns invite a celebrity to turn on their Christmas lights, we’ve asked a Spice Girl to kick off the festivities on Winterville’s opening weekend, with Melanie C bringing her 90s Mixtape DJ set to the Spiegeltent. Each Friday after this we host another special guest DJ, with DJ Yoda, Norman Jay MBE, Jazzie B, The Cuban Brothers and South London Soul Train all throwing parties.
Bar Humbug residencies for 2018 include Massaoke on Thursday nights and Bugged Out’s Little Bugger on Friday nights, while you can catch Guilty Pleasures and special guests in the Spiegeltent on Saturday nights, as well as a one-off show from Ultimate Power. Earlier in the day on Saturday Indeedy Musical Bingo bring their chaotic party to the Spiegeltent, while The Karaoke Hole are in residency in our second Spiegeltent each Saturday night.
We also have a very special community party on our opening Sunday night with The Two Brewers Takeover featuring the London Big Gay Band.
And each weekend you can find new shows and attractions for kids including roaming magicians, Disco Yoga’s Christmas Song Special, Mrs H & The Singalong Band, the return of Little Bird’s Kid’s Quarter, interactive Story Labs and a showcase revue from the talented young musicians of Lambeth Music Service.
And the best thing? Access to all of these events is entirely free once you’ve paid the entry charge (£2 after midday at weekend and £5 after 6pm on Fri and Sat night).
