Have you been naughty or nice this year? Whatever the answer, Hundred Watt Club's gift to you is this hot toddy of a show, jam packed full of festive burlesque, cabaret, circus and drag acts!
Join us at the gorgeously intimate Ashcroft Arts Centre.
Always seductive, always sublime, and always that little bit ridiculous. This is an evening of vintage inspired, Christmas themed entertainment. If you like your Winter nights bawdy and a little bit naughty, this is for you! The cast :
Fabulous hostess and angel atop the tree Divine Miss Em
Slinky sugarplum fairy showgirl Lena Mae Lenman
Drag royalty and her tinselled sceptre Cherry Liquor
The queen of 'look-at-me', lametta bedecked Lolo Brow
The 'penny in your pudding', comedienne frau Eva Von Schnippisch
The lowdown :
Hundred Watt Club employ & embrace adult themes, strong language and partial nudity, not for the faint hearted or easily offended - come with an open mind! Over 18s only. No refunds if it's 'not to your taste'! There is 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!
What the critics say :

"Crude and unpleasant, for crude and unpleasant people." Seetickets reviewer
"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" fringereview.co.uk

The youngest daughter of a wartime Tiller Girl who performed at The Windmill, the theatre that never closed, cabaret runs through her veins!
