Adult’s only variety night, ‘Ember & the Vixens’, by multi-award-winning Manchester theatre-maker, is back with a festive cabaret funded by Arts Council England

Selina Helliwell, writer/performer/producer behind the award-winning shows ‘The Formidable Lizzie Boone’ and ‘Burnout’, as well as awards-shortlisted digital production ‘Fruit Salad’, is bringing another night of music, burlesque and poetry to The King’s Arms in Salford, after the success of her debut cabaret show in August.

The theme of the night is ‘vixen’, drawn from Selina’s burlesque alter-ego ‘Ember Travixen’. There will be jazz music, burlesque acts in various sultry styles and spoken word poetry, this time with a Christmas themed twist.

So, come along and enjoy the show and revel in female empowerment and fabulous entertainment.

Speaking of the performance, Selina said: “Come one, come all and join the vixens – or should we say ‘festive foxes’ – for an adult’s only night of entertainment, sparkling with burlesque, music and spoken word performances. 

“This time with a Christmas-themed twist! Find the fiery (festive) fox within on 10th December and meet us under the mistletoe.”
