Bestival win Best Major Music Festival 2012 at the UK Festival Awards. So proud. Big love to my festival family and everyone that makes this festival what it is. We love you for voting. Role on 2013 and HMS Bestival.
So the critics came, they saw, they laughed (thank God) and they reviewed us in our West End debute. Yes Gideon Reeling or as Time Out call us ‘Punchdrunk offshoots and bespoke theatrical troupe Gideon Reeling bring their deliciously wonky take on the Xmas Party to the Soho Theatre.’
– Time Out
‘It’s the Christmas Party season. But before you go to your awful evening, you should go to this – the most bizarre office Xmas party you will ever attend. I went to last year’s critically acclaimed, sell-out run and it’s bananas.‘ – Le Cool
‘expect to be immersed into a hilarious world of grotty Santas and scary elf-men as the assistants lead you through a host of seasonal feats, party games and comedy songs.’ – Time Out
Come and see for yourself. It’s running until the 23rd of December. This year’s show guarantees to replace all your humbugs with festive cheer. Warning show contains tinsel, mince pies, nuts and bulimia. Any allergies to fun must be left at the front door. Chrimbo kisses from Mr Reeling and his Assistants.
Well Penny Lee Brown from Capital FM does anyway… read an extract from her blog below. http://theplbway.wordpress.com/people/clayton-wright-2/

Last week I went to the opening of Bold Tendencies, a summer sculpture project which exhibits on the roof top of a multi-storey car park in Peckham, London. Alongside the exhibition is the very cool Frank’s Cafe sponsored by Campari. You’re able to get sloshed whilst looking over an incredible London landscape and talk rubbish to hot Goldsmith’s College students about the contemporary art you saw down on the floor below. Sweet. My mate Paloma Gormley designed the bar and performance theatre together with Lettuce Drake, both from Practice Architecture. This year, all five senses are treated as the art space has expanded and now encompasses a mix of performance including poetry readings, film screenings, live music, sculpture and freshly made cocktails at Frank’s, no wonder it’s called Bold. It’s on now till the 30th of September and it’s free to get in.
We all love a video montage, so watch myself and Katy from Capital FM’s Breakfast Show presenting the acts at OSFEST in the first of our summer festival take overs. Performances included Jaguar Skills, Parade, Missing Andy, Lethal Bizzle, Aggro Santos, The Feeling, Goldie Lookin Chain, Tinchy Stryder and Example.
