Marcelo de Ramos somersaulted over cars on Britain’s Got Talent and now the globe trotting Brazilian acrobat brings his feats of physical endurance to the Trades on Saturday 31st October.

Marcelo headlines the usual eclectic Cabaret Heaven bill but as well as wowing Simon Cowell with his acrobatic genius he has also broken world trampolining records and even appeared on Wife Swap with his contortionist wife.

He’d supported by Steve Faulkner who won Covent Garden Street Entertainer of the Year with his hilarious magic show and comedy duo Sliver and Dice who are a fakir act. Hosts Peggy and Bernard promise a few spooky surprises to celebrate Halloween with their fellow comedy ghouls.

Martha TilstonThe weekend kicks off with a return visit from New Folk superstar Martha Tilston on Thursday 29th October marking her return to the road after the birth of her daughter.

She will be previewing songs from her hotly anticipated new album that will many critics believe will show she is the most gifted singer-songwriter of her generation guaranteeing the Tilston name will dominate the English folk scene for another generation.

The La Puta team promise a bloody mix of zombies, beats, rotten fruit and heart ripping tunes on Friday 30th November as they convert the concert room into a Halloween horror ballroom.

DJs Zomby Boy and guest ghoul-js Taz Boh and Alixo Brains are promising a terror soundtrack not for the faint hearted.

“Over the years we’ve had all sorts of acts but we’ve never had a Britain’s Got Talent star before so it is a great booking as Marcelo’s act is utterly amazing and just right for Hallloween,” says Trades Club spokesperson Paul Clarke.

“Martha Tilston was rightly one of the stars of our successful Trades Roots CD and I think we’re all looking forward to hearing her latest batch of songs which should see this talented artist take her place as the Queen of New Folk.”
