Last Night of the Pleasure Fair

Sign with Thrills in Lights

The Rising Sun

Sat 23 Nov, 8pm – midnight. £5 (including free drink)

Join Coney for some Saturday night frolics and uncover the historical Bartholomew Fair, a notorious pleasure fair that ran in Smithfield from 1133 to 1855, through games, challenges and live performance.

The event will be inspired by elements of historical research responding specifically to the history of Smithfield and surrounding areas and will explore how counterculture in London is now under threat.

 Tickets are £5, including a free drink on arrival (beer, glass of wine or soft drink). Buy tickets here.

The performance will take place in the upstairs bar, up one flight of stairs.  Wheelchair accessible performance information to be announced.
