Introducing The Hastings Haus of Gorgeous

Let us entertain you with two nights of delectable local drag, burlesque and cabaret performers and films we think you'll fancy!

The Hastings Haus of Gorgeous has chosen our stunning venue for its debut shows on Friday 6th and Sunday 8th August.

With two shows produced by local burlesque performer Pupin DeVert (aka Judith VanDepeer), each night will screen a feature film, followed by a live showcase presenting the cream of local Hastings talent. Be prepared to be blown away by your local Kings, Queens and everything in between!

Hedwig is the “internationally ignored song stylist” and this highly original rock-opera is described by its writer/director/star as a “perennial, modern Sound of Music or Wizard of Oz” - but made, more specifically, “for the weirdos.”
