Theatre music and magic show will paint town Redbananallama

A night of music and magic is promised at The Dukes on January 10, courtesy of The Redbananallama Cabaret Club.

Redbananallama which is a Social Enterprise run by and for people with disabilities, is one of the first groups at The Dukes to be part of the Make Project supported by Lancaster University.

This cultural partnership aims to develop arts, education and learning in Lancaster and to invest in, enrich and sustain the city’s cultural life. To celebrate the final performance of The Dukes current Christmas show, Redbananallama have organised a Cinderella Cabaret which takes place on the set in The Round from 8-10pm. This fantastic evening of entertainment will include songs, dancing, magic, poetry, cocktails and makeovers all produced by members of the group themselves. The event will also feature close-up magic with professional magician, David Lancaster.

Glitter and sparkle is the dress code for the cabaret which is open to everyone. Tickets are £5 and any carers go free. Redbananallama meet weekly in Lancaster to organise inclusive, fun and friendly club nights run by and for people with disabilities.

Their first event took place in the summer and the plan is to run future cabaret nights at pubs and clubs in the city.

As well as organising club nights, Redbananallama also gives people an insight into how the arts work and how they can explore their own creativity in a social environment.

Redbananallama is open to anyone aged over 21 with disabilities and meets every Thursday at The Dukes Centre for Creative Learning from 10am to 3pm.

Each session costs £10 though concessions can be considered. For more information and to book tickets for the cabaret, ring 01524 598500 or
