In 2019 Caravanserai invited Rimski's Yard to be part of their world at Camp Bestival. Created by Pete Bateman & curated by Chris Tofu, of Continental Drifts... A higgeldy-piggeldy conjunction of caravans, with seating booths, stages, entertainment  for all ages, circus, bands and DJ's... see reel below (thanks to Emma Pengelly-Phillips) showing a patchwork of delightful moments from the 2019 festival.  

We were delighted to return with Rimski's Yard in 2021 in a slightly different capacity, as the main outdoor stage (instead of Camionettes).


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!
