Across The Pond will be a blend of old and new performers providing a plethora of cabaret entertainment at Proud Cabaret, Brighton on Wednesday, July 29 2015.


THE show will be hosted by Mysterry Drag-Queen who felt that the traditional Sussex Beacon Fundraiser that occurs on the last Wednesday before Brighton Pride needed some new blood and direction.
