Sarah Ann Cromwell – Diva Gigs: A Week in the life of a Diva!
Britain’s first award winning Comedic Operatic Cabaret Diva Gigs: A Week in the Life of a Diva, is an unforgettable romp into the operatic world of Birmingham Conservatoire trained Soprano and comedian: Sarah-Ann Cromwell. “Diva Gigs, a show about opera, is enjoyable even for people who would shudder at the thought of it.” (Broadway Baby) Described as hilarious, charming, brilliant, unusual and vivacious Sarah-Ann’s lung busting voice, funny stories and expert characterisations provide a family friendly “show for all ages and nationalities, for the posh and the proudly working-class and proves that both music and laughter are pretty much universal.” Diva Gigs is an unforgettable musical performance which dispels any myth that opera is exclusively posh!
TIME OUT LONDON
Diva Gigs is far from a gimmicky show: it’s simply a pleasure, partly because of the quality of Cromwell’s voice but also because of her enormous charm, engaging humour and relaxed manner. 4 ? TIME OUT LONDON
A highly enjoyable evening of music, hosted by possibly the most down-to-earth diva 4 ? FringeGuru

This is an exciting new medium that needs to be seen in person to get the full experience.
Dome Club has enjoyed a superb first season at The Custard Factory. All tickets sold out half way through the month and the happy customers and encouraging comments on our Facebook page – as well as a number of positive reviews elsewhere – bear witness to the appeal of the fulldome experience.
We’re putting on an extra event this Friday 31st January consisting of three special performances.
We’ve reduced tickets to only 30 per performance, so don’t delay.
The events have been going well and the Pink Floyd shows have been selling out each time so get your tickets early.
Dome Club are looking for people to create content for showing on the Dome Screen
