The Secret Circus is back at The Old Pint Pot with a new Under The Sea show and fresh surprises, as the 'anything goes' happening brings what it describes as 'a night of burlesque, boylesque, drag, comedy, music, whipping, mermaids, fish and puns...'
There's lots of burlesque acts - Little Peaches, Vendetta Vain, Ginger La Rouge, Claire De Lunacy, Kitty Campari, Anne Addiction and doubles burlesque by Zaina Zuzu and Chéri Whambam.
Comedy comes via Thick Richard Duffy and Josh Jones, comedy duo Toots and Leigh, and comedy pirates and comic con fixtures Jollyboat. Sideshow act Porcelain will dare audience sensibilities, whilst Dave Viney's spoken word 'will help them recover'...
Also appearing are folk singer Matthew Webster and LA-based synth-pop-rock band Chanel and the Circus, with more acts still to be announced. However, it's the vibe as much as the performers that puts The Secret Circus on its own...
"The Secret Circus is a family and I think that's why so many people connect to it" explains the groups' Chanel Samson "It reflects a spirit of individuality and acceptance no matter who you are or where you come from or what you like in bed! Just so long as we respect each other and come from a space of love, anything goes."
And fellow Circus founder, Eve Howlett adds: "The Secret Circus was created to showcase unbelievable talent. From newbies to full-time performers, our acts have one thing in common: the passion to entertain. In just a few years we have been shocked by how much it has exceeded our expectations. We welcome everyone to join us and run away with the circus!"
