Raven Noir is a deliciously dark showgirl with a hint of gothic elegance, once described as the embodiment of old New Orleans. After taking to the stage in 2012 she quickly became a well known and popular performer on the burlesque circuit finally becoming international in 2014 when she undertook a 44 show engagement in Australia before becoming a hit in Paris.
Graceful with a sultry mesmerizing
beauty and haunting routines Raven prides herself on top class visually stunning costumes working closely with some of the best costumiers in the business.
After appearing on National television and in Music videos and Books as well as winning numerous awards Raven Noir continues to wow audiences both nationally and internationally.
I have always been inspired by performance art; the visual element and ultimately, the darker side of burlesque.
Creating a story or a character for a particular piece of music or song has always been the starting point for all of my acts. At the brink of the pit of darkness with Minataurs and She Beasts, only to be rescued by Goddesses and standard poodles,( sometimes in the same show!)
Entertainment is the playground of life, from the underworld to the heavens; the sublime to the ridiculous: enjoy the feast and frivolities. In all it's forms, Carrie Couture is bringing sexy back
Dame Alice Allarse began drag performances whilst based in Brighton many (too many!) years ago.
She gained a degree in performing arts - whilst simultaneously bunking off to tour the UK, Germany, Slovenia, Croatia, France, Holland and Austria as part of a look-alike group; the Liquorice Allsorts, and as part of a cabaret trio; the Happy Hippo Show. She also won the title of Alternative Miss Brighton as Miss Immaculate Conception ('96).
Alice has had residencies in Rumours Nightclub, The Faith and Club Rouge in Blackpool and performed in many venues - often as part of a Ladies Night.
Always drawn to the glamour, feathers and rhinestones of burlesque (and being a dab hand at making costumes and props), she has performed in several burlesque shows recently and she is now interested in bringing an element of humorous draglesque to compliment the more traditional burlesque and boylesque!

Meet your compere for the evening:
MRS MARJORIE HAWKINS
Due to pension cuts and bills to pay Mrs Hawkins came out of retirement to become a Compere.
Since her first appearance she has spent many an afternoon drive on the motorways to introduce some of the finest acts in the country.
Although never married she is known to one and all as "Mrs" to prevent men becoming over friendly with her.
Don't let the grey hair fool you!
