Joe Black

Dark cabaret DRAG darling, musical comedy misfit and vintage vaudeville villain.
Living somewhere between the stages of music, theatre and comedy, Joe Black takes an audience firmly by the hand and guides them into a place where the strange and unusual reign supreme. No stranger to the absurd, Joe Black creates a world where the shocking is the sublime and the ridiculous is the beautiful.

Elsie Diamond
Elsie Diamond is an international burlesque performer, cabaret singer and compere. Inspired by the music hall tradition of comic song, opera, pop culture and her background in costume design, Miss Diamond has an eclectic repertoire of sultry routines. Be it wartime classics, 18th-century satire or classic fan dance, Elsie will add a vintage sparkle to grace any occasion.

The Ventnor Darlings
The Ventnor Darlings have been knocking about this old town for a long long ... long time. They are regularly to be found in local establishments butchering the classics. Singing along is encouraged, if only just to massage their egos. Often to be described as 'musically adequate, but always well dressed', VD isnt just an malady, it's a lifestyle.

Fanny Quivers
Fanny Quivers is the Isle of Wight’s own cross-dressing clown who needs practically no encouragement. This handsome woman is here to make you laugh and bring you some joy. Her specific talents are yet to be determined, but she can guarantee you’ll get a show... whether you want it or not.

The Oddfellas
Having recently fled from Parts Unknown, The Oddfellas are returning to the stage once more! With their unnatural blend of magic, mischief, and mayhem they will amaze and amuse you.


(Optional) Dress up theme is: Keep Ventnor Weird
