An alternative Christmas night out celebrating all things cabaret and comedy! Whack on a Santa hat, grab a bottle of fizz, wrap your secret santa, as it’s the office Christmas party!
Sweaty Sandra’s eaten your chicken and stuffing sandwich, horsey Leanne’s spanx are too tight, and all that's left on the buffet is vegan cocktail sausages - but it’s going to be a cracking night!
Prepare for a Christmas like you’ve never seen before with sketches, songs, lip-syncs, dances, stories, and unapologetic raucousness like a work Christmas party with your wildest, oldest, fabulous, and filthiest employees.
A night full to the brim with festive frolics from side splitting sketch troupe, Your Aunt Fanny, and foot-stomping, pant-wetting, glitter throwing drag trio, Bonnie and The Bonnettes.
Thu 12 - Sat 14 Dec 2019

Advice taken and ignored, tellings off, pep talks and tales of her past. We were always scared of sounding just like her but maybe she was right about some things.
Part gig, part their mums' living rooms, Bonnie and The Bonnettes delve into motherhood, womanhood and femininity through conversations with their mums, armed with three microphones, music, and a bottle of prosecco.
They are a tribe of women that have shown us the way and it's time to celebrate, so put on a buffet and crack open the bubbly because they are our mums and it's about time we chanted it.
