Bluebeany and Ruth Getz presented ‘Sideshow Wonderland’ A Surreal Cabaret with a fairground flavour. The show included amazing performances from the brilliant writer and performer Michelle Dee, the sublime shape shifting personas of Caroline Ullyart, Ruth Getz and Vicky Foster’s awe inspiring ‘The Wrongettes’, Hull’s 4th best poet Dean Wilson, perfomers extraordinaire The Giddy Kippers, uber cute / scary clown Zoe Hughes, Hull’s Black Elvis Bobby Diamond, amazing close up magician Rich Reynolds and DJ Harl Vind. The evening was held at the iconic Walton Street Club, Hull. The audience were ranged from ages 21 to 87 and Betty (87) won the much sought after Sideshow Wonderland 2019 Twist Dance Competition Trophy. As you can see from this suberb short film captured and edited by Mark Richardson aka Codhead, the audience brought the addition of their joy and enthusiasm to create a moment of beautiful togetherness…
