Event Information

Twangin’ on a guitar! Bangin’ on a drum! Look out everybody, ‘cause here come…

This one’s for rock stars big and small. Johnny and the Raindrops play exciting and original live music for children and families. The four-piece band have been thrilling audiences with their 'gigs for cool kids' since 2008 at festivals and family events across the UK.

Songs from band’s seven albums are brought to life with costumes, props and a whole heap of help from the audience.
Young’uns with a knack for punk-rock pogoing can get up on stage with guitars both real and of the air variety and get dressed up as peas, carrots, cats and superheroes. Everyone can learn a few things at pirate school. Watch out for the flying teddy bears!

The Raindrops’ music has been played on radio and TV in the UK and across the world, and entertains kids in large numbers on YouTube, Spotify and anything else that can stream their rock’n’rollin’-jump-up-and-down-hip-shakin’-soul-powered tunes.

‘Infectious, joyous fun … packed with feel-good songs … perfect for a family audience’. BBC Radio Nottingham
‘Musically inspiring … encapsulate the spirit of fun … sheer brilliance!’. Children’s Music Network

Venue Information

  • Known for their wild and decadent ambiance, Spiegeltents are exquisite pop-up venues that suit an eclectic performance programme.
    Literally translated as ‘mirror tent’, Spiegeltents were originally built in Belgium in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The magnificent round tent is made of dark wood with intricately carved panels, stained glass windows, bevelled mirrors and an impressive draped ceiling. The boothed seating that lines the edges makes way for a grand dance floor with an in-built stage where performers such as Marlene Dietrech famously sung ‘Falling in Love Again’ in a Spiegeltent in Paris in the 1930’s.

    Nottingham’s traditional Goose Fair would see folk travel from far and wide to celebrate the end of harvest and pick up a Goose (or two) which were driven annually across the fens from Norfolk. Whilst as far as we know Spiegeltents were never hosted at the Goose Fair of old, entertainment was a significant feature of the event, both in the ale houses around Old Market Square and surrounding streets and in freak shows across the fair, where you could have expected to see literally anything from The smallest child in the world to The Yorkshire Giant Brothers, despite usually being an elaborate illusion from enterprising showmen.

    The Salon Perdu is one of a handful of the unique and legendary tents left in the world today; it has spent its life travelling the world from New York to Sydney, and since 2015 annually to Nottingham, as a small part of the Goose Fair returns to its spiritual home of Old Market Square.
