The Ultimate Kate Bush Experience

This summer Shambush! embark on their next exciting project and attempt to set a world record with The Ultimate Kate Bush Experience.With the help of willing recruits from the general public and our ever-talented band of Shambushers we will congregate at Stanmer Park and re-enact Kate Bush’s iconic Wuthering Heights video.

This free event conceived for the love of Bush, will take place on Sat 25 May between 1 – 4pm and is open for all to participate and spectate.

For the love of Bush!

The Shambush! Coffee Table Book of Shit Stories: Annie’s Haloumi

20 Jan

This is one I shared with a friend. This one is particular banal. I hope you like it.

I wanted some Haloumi and was going to go to Co-op, but instead I went to the Turkish shop to see if it was cheaper.
It wasnt. I bought it anyway.
My friend’s response was this:  “I like that story, it starts out optimistic, has a dip where things aren’t working out as planned, but then the heroine gets the haloumi in the end.”
Editor’s note: I think adding the response may have elevated the status of this story, but I do hope this does not hinder the enjoyment of this tale, or indeed make the reader feel cheated and that it can still be considered as shit.


Shambush! Mayhem in May

30 Apr

Shambush! are getting about this month with tonnes of performance. We’ll be on the street, in the clubs and totally in tents… (couldn’t resist, sorry)

You can find Shambush!, next Saturday, roaming (or more appropriately ranting) through the streets of Brighton, we’ll be the ones with the tin foil hats…. After that we’ll be having it large at the Playgroup Festival Launch Party and it’s going to be amazing.

We’ll be doing street performance every Saturday in the lead up to the epic Hanging Gardens of Brighton – taking place on the 25th, 26th and 27th of May, where we will also be creating awesome amounts of chaos.

This summer of Shambush! won’t stop there we’ll also be doing some great events on June – So watch this space for more updates!

A Christmas Warning from Shambush!

22 Dec

Caution Fake Santas!

It has come to our attention there are a number of creepy fake Santa’s on the market.

Please approach with caution. If you have the misfortune to encounter one of these ‘Santas’ please refrain from telling them if you are, ‘Naughty’ or ‘Nice’. This may only excite them.

You can identify these fakes with three easy tells:

1) Fake beard of cotton wool or cushion stuffing attached with obvious gaffer tape fastenings

2) Lack of trademark Santa Beer Belly

3) Disturbing sign – often implying innuendo or sleazy act

Shambush! Adopt A Performer Campaign

21 Oct

The Shambush! Adopt A Performer Campaign is well underway and we need your help!

We’ve decided to embrace this crowd funding malarkey and get some dollar for the people who so generously perform and build for us, the people who make us work and for the principle that we want to be able to pay for the work that artists do.  We’ve got at least 35 people who deserve some money loving and your support, be it donating to or sharing our campaign, is invaluable. These sterling folk will be giving their skills and time to our biggest project yet at The Brighton Dome. White Night will see a spectacular arrangement of Shambushness! as yet unparalelled in the known world.

So to find out more about our Shambush! Adopt A Performer Campaign and all the brilliant reasoning behind it please head on over here… To our Shambush! Adopt A Performer Campaign page.
