Created purely for adults, the Fling is like no other festival in Chelmsford and features the biggest line-up of diverse entertainment in Essex. Prepare to laugh, cry and be amazed by this year’s Cabaret & Social Club stages, featuring a busy programme of new acts combined with the usual Fling favourites.

This year’s Cabaret Stage line-up includes:
