Sunday 28 August (doors 19:00 / start 19:30) – 14+
The Drill Hall
A mix of music, magic, merriment and mirth thanks to the Major. Join Violet Hugh for music hall ditties and music made by gin, Mr B for the very best in chap hop, Scarlet Butterfly for beautiful burlesque performances, and some magical music hall moments from The Cogkneys, all under the watchful eye of your very special host… Count Rostov.
Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer
Mr.B began his Chap-Hop career in the summer of 2007 when he decided to bring elements of his previous incarnations (UK rapper, jump-up breaks producer, banjolele maverick and dandy) together and create a genre. He’s appeared on the front page of the Wall Street Journal, been played on BBC radios 1, 2, 3 and 4 (Chap-Hop is a broad church) and been described by the Daily Mail as ‘controversial’.
The Cogkneys are a music hall inspired duo presenting music hall merriment and steampunk delights, who perform old songs, original ribald poetry and modern re-imaginings.
Scarlet Butterfly is a cirque and cabaret style pole dance and burlesque performer based in West Yorkshire. Her performances incorporate fantastic aerial (pole) dance and stunning fantasy and faery inspired costumes.
