More about Collective Nonsense


A unique event reinterpreting the 70’s urban disco experience. SuperNature was an amazing immersive arts event that took place in a stunning woodland setting. The audience were taken through the woods at dusk where they met disco themed animal characters and were taught a sequence of funky dance moves. The centrepiece was a nightclub entrance leading to a spectacular full size solar powered dance floor deep in the woods.

We need more of this in our lives. Magic

Madame Bibelots House of Otherworldly Delights

An immersive art experience. “Roll up roll up, join your hostess Madame Bibelot as she presents ‘Madame Bibelots House of Otherworldly Delights’; a bizarre concoction of entertainments and diversions, evoking the spirit of a Victorian travelling fair. Be entertained by Professor Fromaggio and his cure all potions, Olga the worlds first telekinetic baby and the Last Mountain Dancer. Laugh yourself into a stupor in the hall of mirrors, be amazed by the predictions of Madame Dairy Lee, thrill at the spooky films, and stare in disbelief at the rarities and oddities. Not to be missed!”
