 Please note:
Our shows are obviously labelled/billed as an 18+ Cert.
Due to content, some acts/performances will obviously include bawdy/risqué style humour/themes/language, plus there will be some degree of striptease.
We trust that having chosen to come along and see such a show as this, our general adult audience has a broad and inquisitive mind ... if not, our show/event is perhaps not for you.
These shows will also include flashing lights and loud noise - if you have an aversion to either, we suggest that these events are probably not suitable for you.
