Meet Doe Demure

A glamourous burlesque dancer of Butterfly Boudoir, Doe has a passion for vintage, drama and otherworldly Gothic/ethereal fusion with exciting performances characterised by a fluid belly dance style not to be missed.

“The Family Rave Takeover Day Festival will be a great opportunity to try out some belly dancing moves for yourself!” Doe Demure

Doe’s family friendly burlesque is in Gallery 1 from 2pm whilst her belly dancing starts at 3pm in Studio 1.

A women to the left with feathered makeup around her eyes wearing a red hat and red and purple dress, is looking the the right at pictures of the sun, a bird and a fish with 'The Ugly Bugs Wingding' above them all.

Meet The Ugly Bugs Wingding

Hurrah Hurray oh fabulous day, the Ugly Bugs Wingding has flown in to town! What a mesmerising jubilee for your eyes and ears! Come into a magical miniature world to meet an array of enticing insects and colourful creatures on their way to an un-bee-lievable party!

The Ugly Bugs Wingding is an entrancing short puppetry show for all the family, with a beautiful puppet theatre unfolding as musical big Ugly Bugs tell a tale inspired by the fantastical book the Butterflies Ball and Grasshoppers feast.

Meet Styles & Strauss

A fresh and flavourful dynamic duo rooted in early influential Hip-hop with waves of jazz and soul and splashes of blues and funk. An array of acoustic guitar, beatbox, rap and raspy vocals embellished with intellectual and heartfelt lyricism, this earthy head bopping collective really bring an eclectic feel with a innovative freshness – one to be heard!

And more to come!
