Host: David Hoyle

The Fireball of the cabaret apocalypse, David Hoyle is the original performance avalanche – an all singing, all raging bona-fide performance legend. He has appeared in his own Channel 4 TV series, in films and on-stages worldwide. The sensational anti-drag queen presents a very special performance. Expect polemic, pathos, provocative politicking and high comedy.

Mama Rhi

Mama Rhi is a cabaret artist that makes predominantly feminist lip sync and burlesque performance that delves into themes surrounding body positivity, female sexuality and joyous celebrations of love. Her work is satirically sexy, rebellious and mischievous with a wicked sense of humour.

Bordello Collective

Fusing spoken word, soundscape, ritual and song Bordello Collective present a live art intervention that puts the power structures we exist into the forefront of our minds. 

Based in the North East and working across the UK, Bordello Collective are a multi media performance and live art collective. Focussing on space, place and people they produce immersive interactive work that seeks to provoke an examination of the workings of the world we all inhabit.
