Shuffle Festival 2016 explored the role that myth, belief, and reverence has in humanity. In the sacred surrounds of London’s most urban woodland, there were 24 hours of  films, science, talks, walks, performance, food & music. The festival took on the style of an ancient all night festival of the gods with the help of Ken and the Friends at Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park.

Shuffle Festival 2015 was once again held in Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park. This year we built pavilions amongst the trees and a third screen in the cemetery lodge. The theme was Movement, Migration & Place.

Shuffle Festival 2014 was held in the beautiful Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park for five days of films, art, science, theatre, talks and picnics following the themes nature, survival and death.
