Cabaret Fire Night

Is your time to celebrate! This is a wonderful experience.

If you would like to, you are invited to take your turn around the fire. Bring a musical instrument, your stories, your poetry, your dance, your comedy sketches or anything else you may like to share with us on the night.

Every performance is greatly appreciated especially by those of us who haven’t found the courage to get up and show more of ourselves…yet.
