Glam is a 30min vibrant dance and circus cabaret, a humorous outdoor street performance celebrating fabulousness. Audience members are encouraged to join in the fun to dance with the cast in this gloriously fast paced show of acrobatics, hand to hand, disco, feathers, glitter and glamorous make-up!

This colourful performance highlights the power of bringing people together through dance, popular music and invites each of us to celebrate the most fabulous part of ourselves. Inspired by club culture and the journey of the LGBTQ+ community, Glam is accessible to all ages and backgrounds.
