The universal distress call collides head on with this eclectic celebration of May Day… where a fine bunch of live musical artists, wild Acid Folk DJ's, the awesome Arcadia feature film and art happenings are brewed with archaic and improvised May Day ritualistic practises to concoct a rich and fertile place for new growth and THINGS.

We welcome in summer and explore all aspects of this important day in our annual calendar from the pagan to the political, from punk to folk, from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Climaxing with Paul Wright's mind blowing ARCADIA film which explores British folk customs and the eccentricities of the British people as they mark the passing of the year.

Also being served to the hungry is a fine selection of C/R/A/P/…. (cheese, rolls and pickle) to compliment the Cube's fine selection of tea's, ales, wines and soft brews….
