NEWS: Wilderness Festival announces its theatre and comedy programme
Location: Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire
Dates: 4th – 7th August 2016
The consistently spectacular Wilderness Festival returns for its sixth annual outing in August. And to an already most impressive musical bill that includes UK festival exclusive performances from Robert Plant & the Sensational Space Shifters and The Flaming Lips and gourmet food banquets & feasting hosted by three incredible international chefs, Virgilio Martinez, Skye Gyngel, and returning for the second year running, Raymond Blanc, a truly wonderful programme of theatre and comedy can now be added.
Introduced for the very first time this year is the The Wilderness Playhouse. This brand new project is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and will provide a range of plays, theatrical performances, comedy, cabaret, and mime events on an intimate, atmospheric space with tiered seating in front of the stage.
Amongst those who are scheduled to appear there are the celebrated English writer, stand-up comedian and actress, Sara Pascoe and the often controversial entertainer, artist and writer from Kentish Town, North London, Scottee.
Countless other highlights will include Drag King sensation Shesus and The Sistas who will be presenting a special full-on show entitled Self Service – A Resurrection Story; the self-described “whisky-soaked, fire-breathin’, chopper ridin’ Princess of British Burlesque”, Kitty Bang Bang; and popular comedians Alfie Moore, Athena Kugblenu, Fred Ferenczi and Adrian Lancini.
Add horse riding, yurt-building, dance workshops, wild costume parties, talks and debates, a croquet tournament and even a lakeside spa into Wilderness’s febrile mix and it is abundantly clear that this event is far much more than just your ordinary music festival.
