Post-drag, post-gender, impossible to beat, performance avalanche and avant-garde legend, Manchester’s own David Hoyle presents an unmissable evening of high comedy, sound, vision, paint and song. For this special, festive performance David is joined by London’s award-winning cabaret stars Bourgeois & Maurice and Jonny Woo.
“There is nothing quite like him: bold and unique, electrifying and disarmingly humane.”
Time Out on David Hoyle
Darker and slicker than a BP oil spill, Bourgeois & Maurice are a musical duo with style as sharp as their wit. Part cabaret, part theatre, part catwalk freak show, their music explores the mundane absurdity of modern life and wraps it up neatly in a catchy pop hook.
Armed with acid wit, a piano and several inches of make-up, the pair are innovative, provocative and irresistible. Bourgeois and Maurice are a dynamic and debauched must-see.

Jonny Woo is arguably the queen of London’s alternative drag scene. Woo has stamped his mark across London and New York as a host, compere, DJ and performer over the past decade. Lauded by New York performance artist Taylor Mac (“I saw Jonny Woo and I realised that drag can be anything you want it to be”), his hilarious pop-culture parodies have rocketed him to the ranks of one of the most outrageous, boldest alternative performance artists in the UK.
