Shuffle Festival returns with a 24-hour spectacular at a cemetery in Bow

By Stephanie Hartman

We’re big fans of Shuffle Festival, so we're very pleased to hear word of their return to Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park with a programme of top film screenings, workshops and performances, plus a pop-up Indonesian restaurant in tow. The nine-day format from 2015 has been swapped for an intense 24-hour ‘gods, idols and light-themed’ festival, meaning visitors can dine, play and explore throughout the night until the sun rises on Sunday, with a yoga class at 8am welcoming in the new day.

This year's highlights include a midnight screening of ’Steve Jobs’, workshops led by Silo Studio exploring new materials and a one-off performance of a sound sculpture played by Richard Wilson and Anne Bean taking place across all 24 hours.

Tickets cost £12 for E3 residents and £24 for everybody else. Many of the events are free but you’ll need to book others in advance once you’ve purchased an entry ticket.

Shuffle Festival, Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park. Sat Jul 9.
