Camp Bestival, Shropshire, next to the swing boats.... Footage above of Matthew One Man playing on the Homestead Stage. See Puppet Theatre DJ Booth page for more footage of this event. 



2021 Rimski's Yard collaborated with Caravanserai, running the outdoor stage, with full line up of entertainment; circus, bands and DJ's (listed below). Co-curated with Chris Tofu of Continental Drifts.  Caravanserai is created by Pete Bateman, a higgeldy-piggeldy conjunction of caravans, with spectacular seating booths, and a fantastic fairground style indoor main stage.   


With plenty of Wind Ups from Rimski & Handkerchief, including of course,  performances with the bicycle piano & double bassicle, plus magical midnight Wind Downs, with an intimate cabaret feel, featuring a variety of surprise special guest artists; culminating in a Sunday night Spectacular!


M. Bullzini himself walks the wire from the piano, with Fergie on the balcony (drums) in Rimski & Handkerchief's Sunday night show. Below bubblologist, Benoir Pepin and solo performer, Kitty Stewart waves to the audience...

" I wish I could live at Rimski's Yard all year round. In 15 years of putting on festivals, I've never been so captivated, intrigued & enamoured, with an act such as this" - Rob Da Bank, co-founder of camp Bestival
