Dolly Diamond

The Festival Planner is a quick and easy handy guide in alphabetical order with information of dates, times and venues at your fingertips.

The fabulous Dolly Diamond is not to be missed as she presents a fun-filled night of entertainment, featuring six famous faces each night. You'll see much-loved celebrities alongside treasured members of the LGBTI community. If Dolly D is involved, its bound to be an unforgettable night of comedy and cabaret entertainment at its best in Bl*nkety Bl*nks.

Ursula Martinez

Next to Dolly, Ursula Martinez is another favourite of mine. Britain's most provocative theatre maker, she'll bare a lot more than her soul. Her show, 'Free Admission' will see her building a real brick wall between herself and you the audience, as she reveals her hopes, fears, frustrations, delights and disappointments. Side splitting zingers and brain bending truths with tongue firmly planted in cheek, Ursula is most famous for her outrageous magic striptease act 'Hanky Panky', which is the show I have watched before and loved.

The Desperettes: A Guide to being a Wingman is a must see show
that'll have you in stitches. Coupled with some amazing vocals from all three performers wearing giant pink beehives, you'll spend a hilarious night out as you learn techniques for being a wingman at this comedy cabaret.
