The Sunken Yard & The Supper Club

 

Nestled in the rolling hills of the Hidden Valley, obscured by a heady cloud of powder paint and dust from dancing feet, stands the Sunken Yard; a world away from reality…

Prepare for paint fights, party games, music and more, The Sunken Yard have got party jams and games a plenty… not to mention more paint than you could shake a piñata stick at!

After their epic all-day sessions at Noz ’17, these connoisseurs of a good time are back, bigger and better than ever, to take up residency as key players in their new adopted land; and this year, for the first time, they are curating a cuddly late-night disco into the early hours.

That’s right, The Sunken Yard will be staying open all night long!

Join them after their outrageous daytime shenanigans at their new ‘Supper Club’ and fulfil all your Funk, Soul & Disco needs, with DJs on rotation until the small hours. In need of some late night hip shaking? Grab the person next to you, roll down the hill and enter the infamous sunken love shack!
