As the curtains continue to tentatively part on the cultural world after the devastation of the past couple of years, the festive season is – astonishingly – looming into view, and with it the long-awaited return of the riotous seasonal extravaganza that is The BonBons Cabaret.

A local fixture since its 2017 inception as a collaboration with Alphabetti Theatre, The BonBons Cabaret is a confection by the House of Love collective, namely the Bonnie and the Bonnettes trio fresh from their Drag Me To Love national tour, queer pop art punk rocker MXYM riding the waves of new single Starfire self-professed fool and Newcastle queen Vol-Au-Vent Love, and lip-syncing burlesque babe Mama Rhi.

Finding itself pandemically postponed in 2020, The BonBons Cabaret is back at a slew of North East venues, from a Halloween homecoming at Alphabetti Theatre right through to New Year’s Eve; a date that sees the return of the fan-favourite kid-friendly version of the cabaret followed by an inevitably outrageous NYE show and party.

Firmly rooted in the North East and dedicated to championing the very best alternative and queer talent out there, The BonBons Cabaret is the glitter-infused winter warmer we all need. Step through their curtain, and who knows who you’ll meet?

The BonBons Cabaret 2021 takes place at Alphabetti Theatre, Newcastle on Saturday 30th October, Middlesbrough Town Hall on Sunday 7th November, Laurel’s Whitley Bay on Saturday 13th November and Alphabetti Theatre on Friday 31st December
