The Raconteurs’ Delight, imagineered by Dave Weirdigan, co-ordinated by Sten Rae, is a captivating venue, hosting spoken word and cabaret acts by night; family friendly entertainment early evening; performing arts workshops by day; and a not-to-be-missed Sunday Lunchtime Poetry Slam.
Comedians, clowns, acrobats, magicians, poets, storytellers and jazz musicians rub shoulders in the Big Top and Hedgerow Bar, enjoying temperance drinks and kooky cocktails in reuseable glasses with foraged flavours galore!
Here’s a wee sample of this year’s line up…
Jonny Fluffypunk– “stand up poet and sustainable nihilist” – a Green Gathering favourite with a remarkable moustache.
Kapusta – charismatic, surreal, grotesque and extravagant performances utilising fooling, collage and soundscapes.
Adelaide Percy– performance poet inspired by hiphop and folk music.
Francesca’s Word Salad– macabre ballads and unrequited love songs, reverse mermaids and zombie firefighters; in English and Welsh.
Gwilym Morus-Baird – storyteller using sound and voice to tell stories of Wales.
Steve Kaos – super smashing family-friendly circus skills show.
Rainbow Gecko – master Bubbleologists.
Fossilheads – climate crisis cabaret, putting the “ooh” back in “existential dooom”.

Plus chance to get involved in workshops in capoeira, hiphop dance, flamenco, harmony singing, dhol drumming and more.
