Festival Description

The biennial Festival presents a power-packed programme to mid-winter audiences in Christchurch. For five days you can experience performance ranging from wicked and witty to decadent and dramatic in music, comedy and theatre, burlesque, and satire. As the only dedicated cabaret festival in the country, I would like to thank the Christchurch City Council, our gold partner TelstraClear and all our sponsors for making it possible to bring these sexy, funny and dangerous performers to the south. I urge you not to miss these outstanding acts!

Festival Dates June 18 - 22, 2008
