Event Description

The legendary charity cabaret marking International Women’s Day takes place live again, at The Acorn Penzance, on Friday March 4th.

An annual institution, due to lockdown restrictions last year the 10th anniversary event had to be held online, so the organisers are delighted to be able to invite you back into the building, for an irreverent, fun-filled evening’s entertainment.

Hosted by the inimitable Two Marys (whose on-stage antics are worth the ticket price alone) in true cabaret fashion you’ll be treated to a cornucopia of variety acts including electronic alternative folk from Jenny Bishop, Big Dance Company, a vibrant crop of spoken-worders representing SproutSpoken, hand-balancing and aerial silks, comedy skits, cold water synchro swimmers(!) and much much more.

In celebration of women everywhere, proceeds will again be donated to: PLAN International (campaigning for girls rights and equality globally) West Cornwall Women’s Aid (supporting women and children experiencing domestic abuse and/or sexual violence) and other local charities working with women and girls.

There’s also a DIY auction with the chance of bidding on some fantastic prizes donated by local businesses. In honour of the occasion, feel free to dress as your favourite heroine/feminist icon, and please bring along any unwanted bras for our Big Bra Box, to help raise money for breast cancer research.

Everyone is welcome, the theatre is fully accessible, adheres to all current Covid guidelines, and has state-of-the-art air filtration and extraction systems installed.
