We are extremely pleased to announce that our hugely successful, annual Fire Festival is making a big return this year!
The Fire Festival will take place on 29th October in the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens. This year’s theme is “The Music of Orpheus and the Jealousy of the Gods” (7pm start).
We dare you to find a better way of celebrating Halloween!
Our next event is the St George’s Festival on Saturday 23rd April on the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, hit the St George’s Festival tab for more information – here is the poster though.
We are currently planning 2016. Photos and stuff from 2015 are still being sorted out. Hit the various buttons on the top right to see what we have been up to at the various festivals. First though hit, “About”, we have just updated this but can’t make it our landing page (really good at IT, we are) it will tell you everything you need to know about us (obviously).
Below you will just find the various adverts for previous festivals.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, Welcome to Vauxhall!
The Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens Fire Festival returns on 31st October 2015 at 6:30 pm. Last year’s festival was Time Out’s number one thing to do on Halloween and was attended by 5000 revellers on the Historic Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens.
As you exit the world of men, stay on the path, for you do not know what horrors lurk in the night. You will emerge in Asgaard, the home of the Norse Gods. A world of fire, light, celebration, beauty and music, an eternal Pleasure Garden.
This year’s incredible show is in three parts. We open with The Legend of the Trickster God Loki and the Dark Elves a new piece of theatre telling how Thor got his hammer. Our wonderful in house dance company tell this tale with style, grace and some of the punchiest, tightest, most extravagant dance moves you have ever seen. The whole show takes place in front of the famous Vauxhall Bonfire.
The second act is the Fire Festival Spectacular, Fire performers, set piece dance routines, a fire magic show, the beautiful strains of Elgar’s Cello Concerto and fireworks combine in a Fiery cabaret that will blow your mind.
With the explosions still ringing in your ears, and having purchased suitable refreshments from the various food stalls who will be selling their wares and hearty ale or mulled wine from the Thor’s Hammer pub, the Bohemianauts band will play us into the late evening with their fantastic brand of Gypsy Swing as the bonfire burns behind.
