Here are the details to Lorraine Bowen and Ida Barr's edgy new cabaret show:


Get tickets for just £4.50
 
Lorraine Bowen and Ida Barr to headline Suburbaret - Balham’s edgy new cabaret show themed entirely on suburbia.

The variety format blends traditional and alternative cabaret performance, designed to appeal to locals and commuters who enjoy live entertainment without the late night journey home. Unusually, the audience are encouraged to dress down for the occasion, not dress up! Prizes are awarded for the most comfortable suburban outfits, such as pyjamas, woolly jumpers and house socks.
 
 
The line-up for April 12 features Lorraine Bowen, legendary suburban songwriter and performer. Lorraine mixes fashion with a passion for polyester – think Madonna meets Mary Poppins.

The proceedings are held at the Bedford, Balham’s iconic music and comedy venue.
 
 
Ida Barr is another headline act, an ex-music hall star turned gangsta grandma rapper.  Ida will journey from the heart of urban grime to outer ring road of suburban exotica in a sing-a-long set of tip top hip hop numbers. She is the ‘people’s pensioner’.
 
 
 
“fantastic line-up, a playful theme, and a sensible finish time” - This is Cabaret

Tickets are £7 from the website www.suburbaret.co.uk (showing the full line-up) or £8 on the door. Doors 17.30, show 18.30 until a sensible suburban hour (leaving plenty of time for those Sunday night chores).
