1 downtown street, 2 days, 9 stages, 14 shows, 33 performers, 150 years of HERstory.

A ground-breaking, breath-taking, death-defying large scale new outdoor show bringing together the largest gathering of highly-skilled, diverse women and non-binary performers for the first time in a British seaside town.

An all-star cast of amazing wonder womxn will deliver performances, tell stories and perform stunts with a sense of danger and intrigue, resulting in a truly memorable theatrical experience. Aerialists, wrestlers, illusionists, glass walkers, drag kings, contemporary clowns, whip crackers, sword climbers, sideshow performers, variety dancers, contortionists, unicyclists, extraordinary performance artists, storytellers, hula-hoopers and hair hangers invite you to witness all new spectacular matriarchal utopias.  

Popping-up on a downtown street in Brighton with specially designed unique sideshow stages, hand painted fairground art by local queer muralist Dave Pop, original atmospheric electronic soundscape by The Fast Set and original costumes by House of Flying Stitches - Carnesky’s Showwomxn Sideshow Spectacular brings you multiple performances over two days.
