Our recent events have sold out in a mere FOUR days leaving scores of Creatures ticketless.  To avoid such dire calamities, prepare to spring into action.


Rumpus: Glow! is paying homage to our venerable venue, the Islington Metalworks; our crucibles are overflowing with mystical metals and lascivious lights of sculptor and long-time Rumpus regular, Susie Olczak, creating an immersive playing field upon which Seasylph Games will unfold a custom live gaming experience from which almost everyone is expected to survive.

Bert's Pick of the Pops - We asked the custodial staff at Rumpus if anyone could DJ and to our surprise Bert the Caretaker said he and his Missus were mobile DJs in the 70's. So they've dragged his gear out of the attic to play the Pick of the Pops from the 60's and 70's. Let's just hope he forgot to pack the Disco.
