Acts (click the act for more info)

Sid Bowfin

Manic idiot violinist Sid Bowfin is the classical musician the world has been waiting for - the missing link in the classical DNA! Unpredictable, unhinged, unique. Full of the music you love! And some you probably hate. Mozart, Vivaldi, Rossini, Pachelbel, Dexy's Midnight Runners – he knew them all. Great music (played surprisingly well), and audience banter - he loves to get to know his audience, sometimes more intimately than is appropriate, and seeks out fellow lovers of classical music to help him spread his joy. You have been warned…

Your cabaret was a riot from start to finish! Enthralling, ingenious, and extremely witty, it totally captivated both the young and older brethren. It really was a masterclass in musical dexterity and mimicry. The totally spontaneous, rapturous and lengthy standing ovation was well deserved!

Diarmid Williams

Gareth Jones

Gareth Jones, Escapologist, a long time street perfomer and cabaret act, part of our friends The Slightly Fat Features, Gareth has toured the world with his show , a consumate perfomer and one of Britains leading Showman. Your in very good hands expect some thrills and spills

Dott Cotton

Dott Cotton is a Fool. She was discovered dancing for pennies on the dirty back streets of east London. Dott has spent the last three years artfully dodging her way around the streets of Europe with the ambition of making people cry and laugh at the same time.

Although general confusion goes hand in hand with the laughter she generates, her style has been described as a cross between Donald Duck and the Drunken Porter from Macbeth, with a hint of Bondage and that bleached around the edges glamour often associated with a toilet attendant.

Dott expresses a desire to draw parallels with the likes of Marco, but she wiggles to much to be taken seriously.

Matt Barnard

Often described as a ‘Comedy God’, a fantastic Cabaret performer. Some performers are impossible to walk past and Matt is one of them,performing as a skilful, string vest-wearing yob sporting Union Jack shorts and complete with knotted handkerchief on his head.
