)'(Ooligan Alley (the )'( is silent)

By day Ooligan Alley is a shady and welcoming haven for a cold beer, cider, or gin in a teacup under a well placed umbrella. By night travellers can join us in an exploration of visual spectacles and temporary art.

Fun, frivolous & mostly English we love nothing more than dancing in fancy dress to our favourites DJ. This year we’ve brought them with us, so do come sink your teeth into our F1 rig.
