Alternative Valentine's Eve Cabaret - The Last Chance Saloon of Heterosexuality *

Alternative Valentine's Eve Cabaret - The Last Chance Saloon of Heterosexuality *

14th February 2020

Tired of predictable, cheesy Valentine’s Days with a boring veggie option and terrible music with songs like “Lady in Red?”

Poet Natalie Nattering is creating a truly alternative cabaret-style evening. The line-up will feature 7 live acts with music ranging from 1920 to 2020, Natalie’s original poetry, and a variety of delicious vegan dishes served to your table* see menu below.

Tickets £15, includes a selection of vegan dishes, see menu below
Doors open 7.30pm, music starts 7.40pm, ends 12 midnight.

Due to frank and occasionally hilarious references to love and sex, this event is for ages 16+

Are you straight, gay, bi, married, single or somewhere there isn’t a clear gender assignment for yet? Bring yourself, your partner or your best mate for a great night out, whatever your relationship status. Tables will be in sets of 4, with some larger “singles mingles” group tables where you can turn up solo and ready to socialize, or with an odd-numbered group.

Line-up in order of appearance...

Done Well – Dom Butler and Andy Treacher
An acoustic duo with a difference, playing a unique take on covers and some fresh originals, with steel guitar.
