Countdown to The Gifting #WeLoveDN #DoncasterIsGreat

gifting e-flyer#

There’s less than a week to go until The Gifting – 6pm~10pm, Saturday 23rd November, at Church View – and although it’s a DIY festival celebrating the Gift Economy, we thought we’d better give you a bit of a taster regarding some of the people who have confirmed they’re involvement so you know what to expect…

Once again the mysterious Jack the Stag will be making an appearance and ‘gifting’ us his wonderful parachute stage for the evening…


As well as the parachute stage the Naughty Little Pixies will be bringing two yurts (filled with the gifts of love, peace and anarchy) which will create two more performance spaces; one typically Pixie and the other a child friendly creative space.

There will, of course, be another blazing fire… expertly lit (with pyros!..) by representatives from the wonderful Mr Fox.


And there will be more vegan foodie treats from the uber-talented Joie Rachel Carruthers and the visionary Allegra Hawksmoor… but don’t let this stop you gifting food of your own 😉


Music will take many forms including performances from The Last Politician himself, Mr Ian Walker, and an exciting new musical project from Rachel Horne & Jon Kelly.

Once again Tim Lee will be burning the banks (or his bank statements at least)…


And there will be visual art pieces including giant interactive tapestries from Abi Nielsen and I (Warren Draper) will be inviting people to create an artwork from some of my old posters and wheaties… if you don’t know what a wheatie is then you’ll just have to come along and find out! 😉

We’ll be mentioning more of the confirmed acts in the coming week, but always remember that the most important thing with The Gifting is what YOU are going to bring/gift to the event.

If you’re a Telling newbie then these links will give you an idea about what’s in store…
