Proud Cabaret Brighton

2 user reviews

They may be one of Brighton's most glitzy vintage retreats, but that doesn't mean that Proud Brighton team don't want to get a little freaky on a Friday night in the city. Showcasing some of the finest burlesque and cabaret dancers in town, you'll be able to dabble and dance in one of the rowdiest parties in the city. Even partake in Proud Brighton's very own 'Wheel of Fortune' if the night so takes you.
