With everything from Mercury award winning musicians, award garnering comedians, conjuring Magic circle members, cabaret and spoken word, the acclaimed Art Car Boot Fair, a new bespoke interactive art happening from The House of Fairy Tales and everything from hog roasts to the coconut king at Venn St Market – there’s something for everyone at The Apple Cart festival.
