Blind Tiger at Old Market Assembly


Eat, drink and chat into the wee hours, accompanied by the usual mix of wondrous music and performative turns – this is our night-time haunt to kick back and let go. This year we are delighted to be working with the Old Market Assembly on a scaled up music programme at the weekends, and if you want to join in, there will be open mic slots a-plenty.

Contact for more info. Or just turn up and see…

Fri 13 May

Tonight features charming cumbia and chanson from special guests Garance & The Mitochondries.

Sat 14 May

Tonight we have Norwich-based Piratones bringing a fresh breath of jungle and hip-hop to the honourable tradition of politically-conscious reggae, admirably wearing their hearts on their sleeves but never forgetting to keep it groovy.

Tue 17-Thu 19 May

Tuesday through Thursday the Blind Tiger will be compered by the brilliant master of ceremonies Tom Marshman. A firm festival favourite, Tom will be bringing a little chaos and unruliness to our late-night festival hangout.

Fri 20 May

Tonight you can expect the unexpected from nutty marching band special guests Perhaps Contraption.

Sat 21 May

An evening of interpretive dance and interactive immersive music with The Dan Swank Foundation and Acid House Therapy. Followed by DJs Midas and Amanda Hug n Kiss.


Dan Swank

Do you have power moves that could kill a leaping stag in mid-air?! Does your lycra let out a cry of fear when you slip your finely tuned heart into its silky smooth bodice? Does Bonnie Tyler make you feel complete?

If so, then YOU may have what it takes to be the next interpretive dance champion.

In order to enter you must:

Confirm your solo, duo or group entry with Fifi La More 30 minutes before the show.

Adorn your glad rags, warm up your emotions, muscles and tendons.

Dances are kept short (approx. 2 mins each) and all supported by a carefully selected, powerful, refined and emotional soundtrack. Music will be revealed as you start your dance.
