Presented by Nick Field
Have you noticed how unicorns are everywhere right now?
Unicorn Party takes its audience on journey to explore the history of this cultural icon, from a symbol of purity into a hyped, but increasingly commodified one of self-expression, acceptance and queerness. Meanwhile, as the unicorn becomes omnipresent, the politics of the far-right sweeps across Europe and the world.
Nick Field envisions a reimagined, dystopian Britain, in which we have become a Unicorn Fascist State, and when the unicorns take control, there’s only only one thing to do – throw a party!
Expect a surrealist riot of stories, songs, music, comedy, and copious glitter, to take a sneaky gawp at what happens when escapism becomes inescapable.

“A gift and a welcome exchange” – Lyn Gardner on Be My Friend
