A variety of top quality cabaret acts for Friday & Saturday nights from 7pm - 2am. The venue has its own bar which serves
a selection of smoothies, cocktails and beers
  Rory Motion
A firm Festival Favourite, with his unique style of songs, stories and off the wall poems guaranteed to keep you in stitches!!
Hattie Hatstar
With her selection of self penned sharp and well observed songs performed on the accordion. Don’t worry if you don’t like accordions, you’ve never heard anything like this before…unless you came last  year!
A unique sound of Balkan Gypsy tunes, spiced up with funky dance grooves and a dash of reggae, ska, calypso and jazz, this infectious brand of music never fails to have audiences jumping around in a frenzy
The Incontinentals
Comparable to the Bonzos, and then some...! These guys know how to deliver a good knees-up and no mistake! A great way to bring the evening to a rowdy end…they’re nuts!!
The 500 miles an hour Japanese guitarist and singer performing his own versions of popular songs like you’ve never heard them before. Sheer class, not to be missed!
Maynard Flipflap
With g.s.o.h., contemporary clown who has been delighting crowds for thousands of years seeks audience for intimate interaction and frivolity.
  Mrs. Barbara Nice
Your average Stockport housewife with the affectionate attitude of a playgoup leader at a wild Iggy Pop concert, Barbara is guaranteed to warm the heart of any audience.
The Cleaver Sisters
Multi-talented musicians, sing about rats and dogs and the evil thoughts that men think. They say that playing music together gives them a lot of pleasure and they would like to share this with you.
  Mal Webb
Around the world and into your brain, vocal adventurer and songwriter Mal Webb plays too many instruments in too many styles to too many people. He gives eclecticism a bad name, and that's Mal, whatever your language.
Belly Dancing Troupe: A rare chance to see this local group of exotic traditional welsh belly dancers.
  Wynnie La Freak
Born fourteen weeks overdue in a coal scuttle, the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter, and christened Wynnie La Freak. She will entertain you with some well known singalong classics
Ronald Arthur Dewhirst
Ronald Arthur Dewhirst has travelled the Earth in many different incarnations, as an artist, a shepherd, a dental receptionist and sometimes as an exhaust fitter if there is no other work. He brings happiness to all souls as well as arseholes
  Rope Me In
All the way from Llanfyllin, the man who isnt afraid to just hang around (in a snakeskin leotard)

"This is just a selection of the magnificent line-up
performing in the Cabaret Tent."
