The Glitter Bomb Dancers present their debut, full-length Christmas show, Cracked Nuts: Camper than Christmas, a cabaret remake of family classic The Nutcracker, at The Dukes in Lancaster December 16.

Already there are fewer than 100 tickets available for the second show.

Performed by a cast of 16, there are sugar plum fairies, toy soldiers and snowflakes… with a drag comedy twist. Expect a mix of classical music and pop divas, a bit of camp, a bit of punk and a little bit of crass.

The Glitterbomb Dancers are a new LGBTQIA+ cabaret dance troupe based in Leeds. Started by Joseph Mercier, they combine dance with pop, spandex and energy.
