Our favourite hostess LINDSAY SHARMAN as Madam Magenta introduces OTIZ CANNELLONI (master of mirth and minimalist magic), MATT RICARDO (a showman with aplomb, genuine skill and five balls) on the Infamous Pull The Other One cabaret stage.
7pm – 8pm: QUIZTIME – Come and chill out on the green with The Nunhead Bite Crew as we take you through the culmination of the big Saturday Pub Quiz with a special foodie round followed by ridiculous PRIZES.



Keep your eyes out for this old time new age minuscule mobile cabaret stage. Reminiscent of the quack doctors of the old time west… Chase them throughout Nunhead or just sit and wait for this oddity to perch itself in front of you. Anything from a quick stand up in the butchers, a game of table tennis in the bakers or a dance show in the candlestick makers (watch out for those golden squirrels).
