Welcome to the Luminopolis (formerly The Synergy Project) newsletter… we had some technical problems with our last mailout, so apologies to those of you who received several copies or nothing at all.
We hope you enjoyed our last party on 3rd October – you can see photos here. Our next event will be on Saturday 22nd November 2008 (yes, Saturday 🙂 at seOne London, and will be the last one of 2008.

Chief zippie dude and grandfather of Luminopolis, Fraser Clark, has recently been diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer and his time within this reality zone is possibly drawing to a close. A special one-off Megatripolis event will be held as a fundraiser for his specialist medical care. We ask all of you to come and support Fraser in his hour of need, and here’s why…
In the late 1980’s Fraser created the Encyclopaedia Psychedelica, a magazine dedicated to the zippie / hippy movement. In the early 1990’s he co-founded Megatripolis, the first major UK rave-orientated “festival in a club” thus paving the way for Luminopolis today. In the late 1990’s, he teamed up with the genius alternative theatre writer / actor / director Ken Campbell to create The Warp! – a 24 hour stage play within a 24 hour trance party.
The Warp! was based at The Drome – the cavernous tunnels under London Bridge Station – now known as seOne. After The Warp! finished, a number of the production crew went on to create The Synergy Project – now known as Luminopolis – based at seOne. So you see Fraser’s trailblazing has lead directly to the amazing parties that we run today – he is our spiritual grandfather.
