Treat a dry and dusty Friday night with a generous dose of Cocoa Butter!

The Cocoa Butter Club’s roster of queer performers of colour is one of the most sought after black books around.

Their mission? To moisturise a thirsty club scene with representations of “The Other” in everything from neo-burlesque and poetry to drag, live music and voguing.

Featured on BBC THREE’s Queer Britain: Preference or Prejudice, The Cocoa Butter Clubshowcases and celebrates performers of colour in cabaret.

So, lotion up, baby, because founder and curator Sadie Sinner The Songbird presents a line up bold enough to have you screaming ‘yaaaaas queen, smell like cocoa butter up in hurr!’
