Hello 2015!

2015 is off to a flying start! With your help, the idea of the Tea Tent becoming solar-powered is fast becoming a reality!

We bought a luvvly old truck that, as I type, is being converted into a solar power unit and stage by Gaz PunkBitch and RESource – who are already associated with the Something Else festivals – and it’s looking amazing!

stage launchWe’re still fundraising by selling stuff like tickets to the Solar Stage launch to help finish the build and repair the sides of the Tea Tent, so come! The line-up is immense, dinner and a pint are included in the ticket price, along with two nights camping, and Labyrinth Arts will be there alongside the adventure maze to keep kids entertained.

We’re also starting to get bookings for festival style weddings and private parties as well as being out at our favourite festivals!

Bearded Theory is HUGE for us this year! We’ve been with them from the start, and not only will the Tea Tent be there, but we’re also running the Something Else Big Top stage next to it!  For a full list of the brilliant festivals we’re at, see the events page. As ever, sound and PA will come from the wonderfully quirky Clegg and Techno from Tiny Music Tent, with additional help from our other top SE soundman, Al.

Our seating will be provided by Bartlett’s beautiful handmade furniture, which will also be for sale (Dan is a regular on the SE crew) and, to delight your taste buds, back by popular demand are cakes from the Handmade Cake Company.

There are also some exciting plans afoot for next year, but I’ll tell you about those later.

On behalf of the SE crew, of which this year we have the cream of the last eight years, we can’t WAIT to see your luvvly faces in a field soon!
