Featuring music, burlesque, acrobats and much, much more, New Mills Festival Fabaret, promises to be a real barnstorming Festival launch event.
Doors will be flamboyantly-flung open, at 7.30pm on September 13, by compere Rosie Lugosi.
Her performances combine terror with a dash of tease, glamour with more than a hint of hellfire.
Rosie is a mistress of musical mayhem – one of the UK’s most in-demand comperes, and certainly the kinkiest.
Acts include music from The Baghdaddies (pictured above) and local favourites Lazlo Baby. There will be jaw-dropping acrobatics from the female duo Les Deux Ailes, and sultry performances by the burlesque star, Raven Noir.
To kick off the music and dancing Lazlo Baby bring folksy ska with high octane exuberance. Whilst dabbling in the delights that klezmer, gypsy and trad Irish music have to offer, Lazlo Baby stitch together pounding melodies that’ll hit you with their enthusiastic brouhaha.
The evening will be rounded off with the headline act The Baghdaddies.
An exhilarating cocktail of Balkan melodies, ska and Latin grooves with sizzling brass played with furious energy and theatrical humour.
The band has a particular flair for the Balkans and capture its frenetic energy and flamboyance wonderfully. The Baghdaddies pump out an eclectic fusion of rhythms and melodies plucked from around the world that are guaranteed to raise your spirits.
The event takes place at the newly-renovated events floor in the iconic Torr Vale Mill.
