The Disco Afternoon Tea is an interactive-cabaret-gameshow-tea-party! It’s a community building performance project which mixes the traditional afternoon tea with the glitz and high camp fun of the disco (its french fancies but with sequins).
Audiences are invited to sit at the golden table and enjoy an afternoon tea like no other, with competitive team games, live cabaret performances, cucumber sandwiches, and a disco soundtrack.
Suitable for all ages, Disco Afternoon Tea is built to challenge perceptions of queerness in public spaces and bring communities together through the medium of cake and disco. It’s Hi-de-Hi meets Boogie Nights meets Phoenix Nights.
Disco Afternoon Tea was first commissioned for Bearwood Street Festival (June 2019), with support from Arts Council, England and is currently booking.
