One of last year's feedback was that participants needed more time to connect with each other throughout the festival. Not only we've spaced classes out so that there is more time to take a breather, chat with other students and of course drink and eat.
That's where Delisus comes in: a family business catering for an array of occasions, from birthdays to weddings to corporate! Expect an affordable selection of Portuguese finger food, both savoury and sweet, available day and night @ BATUKE! Festival.

My name is Debbie Bryant from South London and I operate my massage business “Bee-Revitalized” from my home studio. I also work at festivals, corporate and community events.
My love of massage began from an early age. My mum has suffered from back injury for years and I’d help ease her pain whenever needed. It was only when my Dad became ill years later that I realised the energy & relief massages gave him came right back to me & left me feeling extremely tranquil and at peace.
I studied it at UCL in 2012 with a wonderful and inspirational teacher. It was then that I knew I had found my vocation and wanted to continue to grow in this wonderful field. My skills include Holistic massage, Seated Acupressure, Hot stone, Thai Yoga Massage and Tailor made treatments to suit the client’s needs.
My aim is to allow clients who come for treatment, to leave feeling better than when they arrived! I am registered therapist with the Massage Training Institute (MTI), with full insurance.
I’m Gary Rollins and Mind the Gap Massage is my Mobile Massage service for East London and the Home Counties borders. I practice our family motto daily - “Do what you can, for whomever you can, for as long as you can”.
Having been on many a treatment couch as a young aspiring professional cricketer; I know the value of good therapeutic support. I became inquisitive as to how massage worked, so I returned to study, I learnt and passed!
So I came to massage later in life, yet life has given me a toolbox of skills and experiences that I draw on to enhance my passion for the gift that I have acquired; and it is that passion I bring to you: you’re in Good Hands!
