Following the success of their Edinburgh Festival debut, Full Moon Cabaret returns to the UK with an especially subversive Valentine’s Day varieté at VAULT Festival 2019. This edition of the Full Moon Cabaret celebrates the Blue Moon with burlesque, varieté, and the dirtiest blues song ever written.

“...wonderfully unmitigated pleasure palace...”

A blue moon refers to the rare occurrence when there is a second full moon in a single month. But not only is the colour blue a signifier of rarity, but blue is also a euphemism for pornography. A parade of the perverted and peculiar, the Blue Moon is a fever of filth and fantasy, featuring a drinking game to the dirtiest blues song ever written.

Performers TBA


The Full Moon Cabaret is an immersive art party with burlesque, varieté, and sexy surprises, loosely exploring a theme derived from what Native Americans traditionally called the full moon. The Full Moon Cabaret takes this name as a jumping point for an eccentric examination of gender, sexuality, and the general absurdity of being human.

Each night features 3-4 international performers and interactive audience hijinks including the infamous mooning contest where an audience member can win a mason jar of O’Donnell’s moonshine. Tying everything together is the Full Moon Players, a troupe of Berlin-based actors and dancers performing devised theatrical oddities ranging from political satire to interpretative dance. High brow and low brow, but never middle brow, the Full Moon Cabaret is a witty and incisive evening celebrating the lunacy within us all.

VAULT Festival is London’s biggest, boldest and bravest arts and entertainment festival, hosting hundreds of events each year across Waterloo.

In 2019, VAULT Festival returns from 23 January to 17 March with 400+ shows from more than 2,000 artists, featuring the best new writing in theatre and comedy, cabaret, immersive experiences, late night parties and more.
