A Burlesque Cabaret Dinner
Le Carnivale is a dinner and cabaret show that features burlesque, circus, drag and wonderful oddities within the stunning walls of Bartholomew’s in Newcastle, Australia. The show is presented by Bettie Bang Bang and features both local and interstate performers.
The show includes 2 hours of entertainment with dinner. Drinks packages are also available.
No Cabaret Event is the Same
If Le Carnivale is a circus, then Bettie Bang Bang is the ring master. Bettie curates each show to make sure that they are always unique and a little bit special. A true inspiration for so many of her performers, Bettie is not only an MC and producer, but also a pinup model and Spotify talk show host. Bette uses all her knowledge and experience to put on a burlesque cabaret night not to be forgotten. And every show is one night only, so you do not want to miss out!
4-6 PM Wednesday to Friday is happy hour. Receive $2 off all tap beers, wines or house spirits.
