March 3rd Full Line-up:
Award winning TV magician Maximilian Somerset is one of the few privileged to be an Honorary Inner Member of the Prestigious Magic Circle, London. He has performed for Celebrities; Royalty; Barristers and Road Sweepers alike.
Max has had his own prime time TV show on BBC 1; performed three sell out stage shows at the Magic Circle and has twice played the Organ at the Royal Albert Hall. However, you may also know him as the resident close- up Magician at the Dover Street Arts Club in Mayfair. For Max, the key is diversity and adaptability.
He calls himself “The Unusualist” because his magic, far from being associated with all the ‘choose a card any card’ clichés, is something more profound.
Velvet Toned Vixen meets The magnificent Maximilian for the ultimate in magical music! A selection of jazz favourites with a few surprise choices will have you transported into another world. A world of enigma. Modern yet traditional, curious and wonderful. Infectiously fun, this is soul food for the eyes and ears no matter what your palate.
Grace has been on a diet for a very long time, one taste of dark chocolate sends her into a frenzy.
Captain Anchor is a cabaret crooner and burlesque boy based in Kilkenny, Ireland. Captain Anchor has a silky smooth singing voice and a strong dance background gained from performing in musical theatre shows. Captain Anchor has performed at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, London Burlesque Festival, and Brighton Fringe.
Locked in a tower long before her rescue, Fionas needs are way more than Love first kiss… what about Loves first romp?
Little Lady Luscious
Dynamite Truly Does Come In Small Bundles
Not quite 5 foot, this little lady makes up for her size with her fun, sexy and mysterious style.
Laurence Owen is a singer-storyteller from London. Often funny, always clever and rarely tasteful, Laurence’s bookishly spiky tales come with all the blood and thunder of Nick Cave or Scott Walker, but through the eyes of someone who might once have captained the school chess club. “Genius – a glorious shot of pure dark satire” – Broadway Baby
As seen in ‘The IT Crowd’, ‘10 O’Clock Live’ and ‘Richard Hammond’s Secret Service’, circuit favourite Jacob Edwards presents his unique brand of alternative character comedy.
An urbane, moronic and hedonistic clown. Hilarious.’ Three Weeks.
