Ember & The Vixens

A Mancunian Christmas treat NOT for the kids
December 7, 2022

An Adult’s Only variety night: ‘Ember & the Vixens’, from multi-award-winning Manchester theatre-maker Selina Helliwell, is back with a festive cabaret - funded by Arts Council England.

Selina is the writer/performer/producer behind the award-winning shows ‘The Formidable Lizzie Boone’ and ‘Burnout’, as well as awards-shortlisted digital production ‘Fruit Salad’, and she is bringing another night of music, burlesque and poetry to The King’s Arms in Salford, after the success of her debut show in August.

The theme of the night is ‘vixen’, drawn from Selina’s burlesque alter-ego ‘Ember Travixen’. There will be jazz music, burlesque acts in various sultry styles and spoken word poetry, this time with a Christmas themed twist.

So, get along and enjoy the show and revel in female empowerment and fabulous entertainment - in Britain's Most Bohemian Back Street Boozer.

The talented artists behind this very special evening are inviting us to: ‘Come one, come all and join the vixens - or should we say 'festive foxes' - for an adult's only night of entertainment, sparkling with burlesque, music and spoken word performances. This time with a Christmas-themed twist! Find the fiery (festive) fox within on 10th December and meet us under the mistletoe.'

Saturday 10th December, 7:45PM. Tickets HERE

This show has been supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
