Welcome, Creatures to the magical, mystical and musical world of Rumpus.

Imagine the bastard child of Pokemon Go and an ancient grimoire spread across 7 rooms of the best live music and most delectable DJs.

But this time, you are the Creatures.  Find your inner magical beast and bring it to the party!  Collect as many other Creatures as possible. Then set them to battle each other; create a mini-society or just buy them all a drink.

You are the hunters and the hunted!

We would like to announce that, following the unprecedented success of our panda breeding programme, we are expanding into unicorns. Please do not be alarmed if you happen upon a burly and dashing unicorn hunter. It is all part of our benevolent plan. We aim to save the species by providing a safe place for them to replenish their numbers.

We would like a reassure all Creatures there will be no pandas at this event. The Panda does not feature in world of magic, neither is it a known musical rhythmic device.  

Dress Code

Pert pixies, bouffant bass beats, positively no pandas, flamboyant phoenixes, quiversome quavers, daring drum-beats, definitely no pandas, mambo-ing minims, bedazzled basilisks, scintillating syncopation, pouting puffskeins, badass back-beats, tumescent trolls, absolutely no pandas at all, shimmering semi-breves, curvaceous chimeras, bootilicious break-beats, happy hoo-hoos, glamorous grindylows, coruscating crotchets, saucy sasquatches, zero pandas.

Whilst we are loathe to enforce a dress code, we are duty bound to express that it would be singularly inappropriate for any pandas to attend this event.

Paradise Moist - get your feet jumping, your heart pumping and your grind bumping.

King Cassady -  let the hypnotic Latin rhythms and interwoven guitars strum you to dervish dance floor ecstasy

Hey there! :) When do ticket sales go on for this event? For some reason we can see the ticket for it, but they're unavailable at the moment.

Reply from Rumpus: Fantastic Beats and Where To Find Them!

Hey, Rachael, tickets go on general sale on Wednesday 1st November at midday. There will be a major rush, so it's worth setting a reminder to see if you can surf the wave of Rumpus frenzy for cheap tickets. The reason that the ticket site is live is that we have a pre-sale week for our League of Ridicule members. Sign up to get a week of unruffled purchase of discounted tickets. If you'd like more info on how to join up, please do drop me an email:
