A Festive Evening of Burlesque and Vaudeville

Have you been naughty or nice this year?

Whatever the answer, Hundred Watt Club's glorious gift to you is this hot toddy of a show!

Jam packed full of festive, glittering showgirls, bawdy comedy, classic vaudeville and awe inspiring circus acts. Always seductive, always sublime and always that little bit ridiculous - enjoy an evening of vintage inspired, Christmas themed entertainment.

‘Harking back to the gin drenched halcyon days of a grimy Berlin nightclub in the 1930s, The Hundred Watt Club sparkles, fizzles, and shines brightly on a dark night’ Fringe Review

Hundred Watt Club employ and embrace adult themes, strong language and partial nudity - not for the faint hearted or easily offended!

There’s no dress code: Hundred Watt Club love it when their audiences dress in their vintage finery and red-carpet glamour, but if you're more comfy in jeans and sneakers - wear them!

Your festive line-up for the night includes the spirit of Christmas personified, your host the Divine Miss Em; gin addled, gorgeously acid tongued drag scrooge Joe Black; Bump 'n' Grind sugar-plum burlesque darling Serafina Hart; tragic and heartwarming, festive vampire Arran Shurvinton and striptease queen, the penny in your pudding Trixie Sparkle.

WHY? The perfect festive night out!

Age Suitability 18+ years.
