What Can I Expect From a Glass Cage Show?

At its heart Glass Cage is a nod to the old-school music halls, it is a variety show like no other - aiming to showcase North East talent in a relaxed environment designed for audiences to socialise, have a drink and most importantly - have fun! Prepare to be dazzled by our fabulous display of circus, music, comedy, drag, burlesque and more!

Do You Expect Audience Participation?

What Should I Wear?

We want everyone to feel comfortable and happy at our shows, so there is no dress code in place to attend. However, you can never be overdressed - so if you've got a funky outfit you never get to wear anywhere else, pull it on and head down to one of our shows!
