We are delighted to invite you to our New Year’s Eve Party at the Magic Garden. Every year we love to get some of our favourite bands and DJs together for NYE and put on a themed party that you won’t forget! This year is no exception, promising sets from South East London’s Chainska Brassika, an exciting 8 piece playing the finest new school ska, as well as the amazing Pangaea Steel Band, who play calypso covers of your favourite tunes and hot Caribbean jazz licks! We’ve also got festival DJs and a totally immersive theme – Wonka’s Chocolate Factory – so please come in costume! Tickets are available now – but go quickly as we sell out every year.



This mischievous rabble from London have been causing mischief since school, spreading their contagious horn driven ska anthems across the UK, mainland Europe and beyond.

24th November 2017 see Chainska Brassika release their next LP ‘Harry J Business’, recorded at Harry J Studios in Kingston, Jamaica with double Grammy award winning producer Stephen Stewart. Extensive tours of the UK and Europe are planned plus a string of festival performances to promote the record. The official video for the debut single from the LP “Don’t You Try” is out now, featuring reggae legend Toots Hibbert of Toots & The Maytals which has gained airplay across BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 6 Music & BBC Radio 1xtra.

“Real musicians, real band, real brass section… fabulous & so refreshing” David Rodigan, BBC 1xtra

“Chainska is one of the most impressive and promising upcoming acts in the reggae/ska genre that I have seen or heard in while” – The Skatalites




This South London supergroup have been bringing calypso beats to the city streets all year, and will be kicking the evening into full swing with some slamin’ steel pan based tropical vibes! Pangaea Steelband will be cooking up a storm of hot Caribbean jazz licks to get the party started!




This ‘funked up’ party DJ is no stranger to the festival scene, playing anything Bassy, Groovy and Booty Shaking for your listening pleasure! If you’re after some relief from a painful week, DJ Jake Pike is the guy to work his musical healing powers…


Plus, DJ Shed Dweller playing nothing but funky body moving grooves, covering everything from blues, soul & funk, to hip hop, folk & rock n roll!

The theme is Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, so we’re expecting you to show up as your favourite character from the original 1971 movie. Are you an Oompa Loompa? A giant Violet Beauregarde blueberry? Or even Willy Wonka himself? We’ll let you decide! Decor will be completely immersive – and we need you to match! Find some costume ideas here!


Our doors will open from 6pm and the night will run till 4am.

We are offering general entry tickets for just £20.

This year we are also offering a £40 ticket for those of you who’d like to enjoy a Wonka themed 2 course meal with chocolate wine!
