It is the year 2049; across the globe the queer revolution changed the landscape of the future from dull into FABULOUS!
Except for one place; one tiny little speck on the rainbow planet… Northern Ireland.
Still in political deadlock, without a government for decades, the future is grimmer than ever for. We join Dick and Cnt as they gear up for a night of covert queer frivolity before – the power cuts! With no Grindr or Facebook to keep them occupied, they must entertain … THEMSELVES! With the help of special guest visitors to their adorable queer living room (conveniently located RIGHT ON THE BLACK BOX STAGE), these queer heroes go through a night of discovery, sexual awakening, intrigue and tickling of the political vacuum, with one final twist that will see the queer future of Northern Ireland change … forever!

Join Gemma Hutton and Electra La Cnt for a performance party to see off Outburst 2018.

Followed by closing party til late with DJ Kate Brennan Harding
(Today FM, Pride, Mother Club and more recently with cabaret & disco collective Fat Puppy at Electric Picnic.)
Expect queer clubbing of old, where everyone joins together in a hot sweaty sexy happy mess!

‘Selected tickets will have a standard ticket price which is recommended. There will be an option to pay MORE IF you can pay a bit extra to help those people pay LESS IF they don’t have it. Pay what you can at the door for LESS IF option- first come first serve with this option.’

Mini Moon

All the fun and craic of Black Moon but this time for the wee ones!

If you have a young child with any kind of disability why not join us for an afternoon boogie?

The music will be low, there will be coloured lights & moving visuals, soft cushions and lots of dancing and enjoying ourselves.

The Green Room will be open to grab tea, coffee or juice or if you just need a chill out from all the dancing!

Mini Moon is a free, monthly event and supported by Children In Need.

Do you want to shake the old year off?  Change it up, try something new?  Then send in the clowns!   Let’s laugh & play & dance our way into 2019 – sure what have we got to lose?  2018 is dead & Bedlam Bazaar is going to throw it the best wake ever!  Amadan bring a heady mix of comedy, music, circus, clowning & full on dance party guaranteed to blow your mind  & detox your soul this New Year’s Eve.
