Experience vintage Vaudeville including Cabaret, Burlesque, Carnival, Illusion, Comedy and Live Music and our Candy Dolls!
Following the PM announcement & the government ban on enclosed gatherings (announced on Wednesday 18 March), Speakeasy HQ will remain closed indefinitely, due to the current situation surrounding the imminent outbreaks of Coronavirus. While we know that this is the appropriate and responsible thing for us to do, it is devastating for us, as as a community of artists and producers.
The stark reality for all entertainment venues is although we have been required to close our operations we have not been offered any respite from our obligation to pay our rent.
Asking for donations through such an unprecedented time is not something we do lightly, and we only ask for your support if you are able to do so. If not, sharing or purchasing a ticket for future shows is just as greatly appreciated.
We are trying to ride this storm like everyone, whilst providing our staff, producers & artists some light at the end of the tunnel.
Until then, stay safe, be kind & keep speaking easy.

Covid-19 has certainly turned the world upside down. We've been rocked to the core as a business and as a family in both challenging and magnificent ways.
Whilst times have certainly been tough as a small business, covid-19 has given us time to reflect on whats important in life... and time to drink!
Come join the Speakeasy HQ Team for a drink, until then keep speaking easy
