Hosted by the reputable Sadie Sinner The Songbird themself, with performances from Chiyo, Demi Noire, Rhys Pieces, Wesley Dykes and Jaide – this is a night bold enough to have you screaming, ‘yaaaaaas queen, smell like cocoa butter up in hurrrrr!’
“Going to see The Cocoa Butter Club is an experience in which everyone should partake. Though, I must warn you, you’ll need to be holding onto more than just your hats as it won’t only blow your socks off.” – A Younger Theatre
