Jesus Was A Gent- A disorganised blend of sick minds that will have you howling with laughter as they astonish you with their musical genius. We are privileged to have these talented young men here in their London debut as they hail all the way from Cardiff where they have been playing prestigious venues such as the Engine Rooms.



Urusen - Delicious harmonies and beautiful tunes combine in a feast of sumptuous sonic delight.



Alan ORourke passionate and sensual with an infectious beat, this mans music will captivate you and enchant you, wrapping you up in its warm undulating curves, a cross between Damien Rice and Muse. Alan is a familiar face around the festival circuit and one of the rising stars of the Brighton scene.



Winter and Williams - Fresh, funky and partly fluffy, guaranteed to make your feel warm and comfortable as your feet tap.



Sweet Monk - Hypnotising rhythms juiced with slick percussion, seldom do you come across an act that oozes such quality from every pore.



Jack Corrigal - One man, one guitar, one mission, this young man is the musicians musician, combining stunning song writing with a fluidly effortless style of playing.



Lawrence B - Soulful, moving and bluesey haunting combination of lyrical beauty and fine musicianship.

Dolly Ginsburg A truly hilarious poetry set from this accomplished lady raconteur.



Adam a stand up comic to tickle your ribs and pull your legs with his hilarious outlook on life.





Surreal Bar Burlesque weavesmiley

A lushly decorated room filled with wandering stilt walkers, magicians, jugglers, Carnival Courtesans and many other styles of performer to amuse you whilst you explore the delights of the burlesque side shows and the kissing tent. Get down and strut your stuff to a sound track including funk, ska, rock n roll and electro.

The Decadan C ubbtickled

A full on dance floor skinned in red velvet, opulently bedecked with sequins, sparkling grooving to the sounds of funky house, twisted electro and louche breakbeat courtesy of:



Rev. Al B Damned A Brighton house legend and stalwart of the infamous Bob parties.

Playing back to back with:

Viv A DJ of many years experience who has rocked many a party, and whose eclectic style has made him an icon at parties all along the South Coast.



Mark Kane An eclectic breakbeat set from a DJ who made himself world famous along side his protg as one half of duo Kane & Able before moving on to a highly successful solo career.



Throughout the event you will meet our wonderful range of performers mingling with the vibrant crowd, Ringmasters on Stilts, the Nicotine Whores, Magicians, The Carnival Courtesans, Jugglers whilst viewing the works of our many artists, photographers and projectionists, making this a truly multi arts indoor mini festival.



Do I need to dress up for this event?

We have an emphasis on personal creativity and encourage people to dress up and have some fun in what ever way they feel most comfortable, whether that is a corseted vamp, a cowboy, an alien or whatever. A key part of the colour and magic of Carnival Twist comes from the sheer variety of costumes worn by our clientele. It is a safe environment where you can explore your imagination, set your creativity free and enjoy yourself to your hearts content. Fancy dress also has the advantage that any celebrities who attend the event can go unrecognised if they so choose.

I'm a woman. We don't say what we want, but we reserve the right to be pissed off if we don't get it. That's what makes us so fascinating and not just a LITTLE bit scary.
