LINE UP ANNOUNCED FOR THE KEEP THE LIGHTS ON CHRISTMAS FUNDRAISER

Absolutely delighted to announce the line-up for our Keep the Lights on Christmas Cabaret!  Expect a sparkling evening of music, dance and dazzling snow business as we transform our beautiful Grade II listed building into a festive spectacular complete with mulled wine, mince pies AND a Christmas raffle. 

 


Underground Clown Club

Two fools take to the stage to lead you on a poetic journey through the most surreal, silly and forgotten parts of your imagination. This is children’s poetry for adults. Taking inspiration from Spike Milligan and Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll and Dr Seuss, two performers create scenes, stories and sketches out of a handful of props and some silly poems, to enthral and entertain you.

‘Performed with such energy, devotion, innocence and heart, that before you know it, you are hooked, you are laughing, and most of all, you feel for the characters.’ A Younger Theatre

‘Like the love child of Dr Seuss and Edgar Allen Poe spliced with a touch of Lewis Carroll absurdity.’– Sabotage Reviews

 


Georgie Jones

Georgie Jones is a performance poet and storyteller originally from a small town in Lincolnshire. She tells lyrical stories with honesty, charisma and wit; her performance style was once described as ‘delightfully dry’ which, for someone who sports a sweaty palm more often than not, she will take as a compliment. Georgie has written and performed poetry in theatres, at festivals, in pubs and at weddings all over the country and she is currently developing her first full-length spoken word show as a Resident Artist at the Roundhouse.

 


Maria Hurtz

Maria is a German showgirl, ex-Cirque De Sol and now Cabaret Artist.  She brings song, lip-sync and a little bit of saucy Burlesque.

 


Heretical Historians

Emerging Theatre Company concerned with the old. Dedicated to bringing life to forgotten stories and history, returning to The Space with some sketch comedy.

 


Truly Sumptuous

Truly loves nothing more than parties and presents, so Christmas is her favourite time of year! She’s very excited to light up The Space with her own brand of Christmas cheer. Whatever happens, you’re sure to be entertained and you might also learn something you never knew about Santa Claus!

 


Simon Elliot

By day, Simon fights crime (he’s not Batman) wearing a cape (sort of. He’s really, really not Batman though). Simon is best described as an intellectual Pygmy and a teller of tall tales. He is the funniest barrister you’ll ever see doing comedy, apart from Clive Anderson, although he has marginally more hair than him, so there’s that.

 

Elinor Fortune

She is a superb singer with strong movement and physical skills that enhance her truthful and engaging performance style

 

Compare The Flying Dutchman

FLYING DUTCHMAN is an ensemble based theatre collective. They formed the company to make new theatre that is inspired by curiosity and the ambition to excite and surprise the audience. They aspire to create a fertile environment in which company members are continuously challenged to develop and grow.
We push performers to a limit that raises the stakes on stage and that makes the shows into an exciting live theatre experience, using a mixture of puppetry, music, physical theatre and new writing.’– Flying Dutchman
