We’ve all been there – glumly slumped against a window pane, reflecting on an Average Joe weekend. Left pining for something bigger… something better… something simply out of this world. Rejoice! Postcards, the universe’s hottest circus and cabaret festival is back with an electrifying bang and bringing you vibes for not one, not two – but three weekends. Conveniently, it turns out some heart-in-mouth acrobatics, mind-bending magic and cabaret performances are just what the doctor ordered. Amble over to North London’s Jacksons Lane and brace yourself for a good buttering up this Friday. The Cocoa Butter Club Speakeasy will be quenching your thirst for fabulous with queer burlesque and voguing performances. Sinners and Satanists, this is Saturday, it’s time to repent. Get your devilish backsides to the all-singing, all-dancing ‘Oh My God! It’s The Church’ – a highly-camp, dirty Deep South Pentecostal party that even Jesus would get down to Hold on a second – where’s your hat? Possibly levitating off your head? On 18 July’s Parlour Tricks, two Victoriana illusionists will boggle your mind so much; you’ll think you’re Scarlett Johansson in The Prestige. And these teasers are just the tip of the iceberg. For all shows, you – yes, you – decide the price. Just reserve your tickets in advance and donate after or generous souls, pay the optional full price in advance.
