In December Curious Arts present their Curious Winter Cabaret with visits to Middlesbrough Town Hall on Wednesday 15th and Sage Gateshead on Thursday 16th December, welcoming a double header of queer performing legends which should provide a festive refuge from the usual consumerist onslaught and traditional Christmas party nonsense.

North East singer songwriter Beccy Owen opens the performing bill; Beccy’s music has won high acclaim over the years thanks to her use of rich harmony, playful vocal techniques and mesmeric rhythms, which place listeners and audiences at the heart of a singular musical experience.

Also performing will be Birmingham-based cabaret performer, host and vocalist Fatt Butcher. Created by artist Adam Carver, Fatt celebrates body positivity and queerness and seeks to engage with low culture and camp, using them as weapons to disrupt normativity. Expect disco, glitter, songs and politics!
