The darkest, funniest and most debauched Kabarett Klub west of Berlin. The Queen of Weimar punk Bernie Dieter finally returns to the UK after sell-out shows around the world with her luxuriously gin soaked, Weimar-punk evening of dangerously funny kabarett, breathtaking circus and fire-breathing sideshow at its most inappropriate, provocative and hilarious best.

Join über-award-winning kabarett superstar Bernie Dieter, her live band and travelling family of misfits, miscreants and fantastic freaks for an unmissable night. Soundtracked by riotous, witty, and hilariously defiant original songs.
