The Gilded Merkin Burlesque and Cabaret
Friday 01 May 2020
19:30


Established in 2012 at the Glee Club in Nottingham, The Gilded Merkin instantly became one of the UK’s biggest cabaret variety shows hosting headline acts to sold out crowds. The show's success saw it expand to include regular nights in Birmingham and Cardiff as well as appear at events such as the F1 Grand Prix at Silverstone, the National Hot Rod, Custom and American car show, the Summer of Vintage Festival and too many private parties to mention!

Featuring only the very best international burlesque and cabaret performers, no two shows are ever the same. Every act is handpicked by Midlands based Burlesque Performer and Producer Scarlett Daggers, the woman behind the Merkin. An eclectic mix of old Hollywood glamour, vaudeville, comedy, music, circus and much more, The Gilded Merkin guarantees an unforgettable night of exhilarating entertainment!

“A hugely generous dollop of magical sophisticated glamour…with a delightful twist of ironic British humour." - John Hess, BBC correspondent
