In collaboration with Smugglers Records, Sondryfolk are conjuring up a selection of specially conceived artworks for this unique little festival. We will be working with artists of varied disciplines to activate the spaces day and night. Picture forest films, intricate craft installations and ghoulish theatrical tales… all to immerse yourselves in! There will also be a specific focus on the locality of the event, of the salty southeast shores.
Sondryfolk is a new not-for-profit group set up to run inclusive projects in arts, education, community sustainability, environmental and regeneration contexts. This project was born out of a concern that we are growing disconnected from each other, our surroundings and ourselves. We hope that working together, through engaged artistic expression and shared ideas, we can reconnect, inspire and provoke!
Sticking to our collective aims, we wish to include and engage all sorts of people so do get in touch if you have any ideas (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The place for real ale and cider from the barrel.
A nice and spicy haunt for a classic Chilli con Carne and meat curry all cooked up by local butchers Lizzy and Bret from the Black Pig.
Dalziel from the Black Douglas is famed for her seasonal food and tantalizingly, tasty cakes. All are gluten free, using ground almonds to replace flour which make these heavenly delights incredibly moist and moorish.
Recipes include: Pistachio, Plum & Lavender – Lemon Polenta – Chocolate, Rum and Orange.
