Cabaret line up for Fling 2017

Chelmsford City Council is delighted to announce the line-up for the Cabaret Palace. 

The Fling Festival, a unique summer festival for adults only, returns to the glorious surroundings of Hylands Park, Essex, on Saturday 1 July, from 12pm – 11pm.

The Fling offers a large yet intimate village of music, surreal theatre, and fantastical storytelling amongst a banquet of unique performances of comedy, poetry, dance, cabaret, side-shows and other curiosities.

The Cabaret Palace is a unique arena dedicated to exciting, teasing and enthralling the audience with a heady mix of circus and cabaret entertainment.

Looking after proceedings for the day and night we’re delighted to welcome back the award-winning host and trailblazer of neo-cabaret, Dusty Limits.

The crowd will be treated to a diverse mix of shows and performances, including former Cirque du Solei artist, Nadia Lumley, whose formidable hoop skills have seen her gain international recognition. There are also pole displays from ex-Olympic gymnast, Kristin McGuire, and acrobatics from The Gun Show duo, whose strength and agility will leave the crowd speechless.

On top of this, other acts include the tantalising burlesque bombshell, Cherry Shakewell, the award winning international clown, Dot Cotton, leading UK mime artist, Apple Tart, and the circus freak and fire show from Charlie Bouquett.

Grab a drink, pull up a seat and enjoy the dizzy heights of Cabaret Palace!

Tier Three Tickets for the Fling Festival are available from £25 via the Festival Box Office on 01245 606505 or via For up-to-date festival information, visit, like ‘Fling Festival’ on Facebook and follow @FlingFestival on Twitter.
