Come and join us for a one-night-only Variety Show, Salamagundy ’22, curated by Turner-Prize-winning artist Mark Leckey at Margate’s Dreamland on Friday 9 December.

For this event, which takes place in Dreamland’s Roller Rink, Leckey has selected an exciting and eclectic line-up of musicians, performers and visual artists.

The Master of Ceremonies is legendary avant-garde drag artist David Hoyle, better known as The Divine David, who regularly appeared on TV in the late 1990s.

Other acts include:

  • Visual poet Richie Culver
  • Multi-genre musician Alpha Maid
  • Performance artist Rowland Hill
  • Artist Ebun Sodipo
  • Interdisciplinary cabaret performer NiCKY
  • Multi-instrumentalist Island Girl
  • Singer Katie McGarry and Tom Giles
  • DJ Twilight Sparkle with crab walking from Polly Combes

Food and drink available on the night, provided by Rad Burger

The event’s title, Salamagundy, comes from the culinary term for a dish made of different ingredients – much like a mix tape – a concept that is reflected in the diverse selection of artists and acts that will perform.

The Variety Show is the first part of an ambitious, multi-year project supported by Freelands Foundation, leading to an exhibition at Turner Contemporary in 2023. The project is co-produced with eight local young people, selected as part of Creative Estuary’s Re:Generation 2031 programme, providing employment and skills development and the opportunity to shape the production of the exhibition.

Salamagundy ’22 is a Creative Estuary Co-commission – part of the enterprising initiative which showcases 60 miles of the North Kent and South Essex region as one of the UK’s most dynamic and creative areas in the whole of the UK.

It promises to be an unforgettable event.
