We have one pair of tickets for next weekend’s wildest event The Goblin King’s Masquerade Ball. For a chance to get your claws on them, read on.
A wonderful darkside of fantasy, The Goblin King’s Masquerade Ball on Friday 29 April promises to be a brilliant kaleidoscope of London’s greatest underground circus, music and cabaret performers at this immersive ballroom party. Here’s a taster of what the Ball was like last year:
Held at the Coronet, this latest Ball celebrates the 30th anniversary of Jim Henson’s cult film Labyrinth as well as being a tribute to the Goblin King himself, David Bowie: “It is with bittersweet emotion that we gather this year to celebrate the life of The Goblin King after his tragic disappearance – an untimely vanishing from the many realms. He ruled with a stealthy claw and a fool’s heart, rendering us helpless to all he offered. His words touched thousands of lost souls whilst his music bewitched all. The Mortal world knew him by many names, but one stands out from them all – Bowie. We knew him as Jareth.” Ten percent of the profit made from this event will go to charities supported by David Bowie.
There will be no chance to be maudlin, though, as there is a fantastic bill of cabaret to lift even the most sunken of spirits. Expect top-notch circus and sideshow hijinks from the likes of Snake Fervor (Double R Club, Lucha Britannia) and Hauk Pattison (Cabaret Boheme), music from the suave Arthur Foxaque and burlesque from Pearl Grey who came through the heats and won the 2014 Burlesque Idol contest with this particularly splendid routine. Full details of the acts can be found here.
