Hi-Vis

2024-05-10 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

A dazzling evening of cabaret with Dr Adam Perchard and special guests Shea and Alexander Lee-Briard.

Writer, singer and cabaret star Dr Adam Perchard returns to their spiritual home at Jersey Arts Centre with an intimate evening of laughter, reflection, and scintillating songs from the worlds of pop, rock, musical theatre and opera.

Known on the Island for hosting Channel Islands Pride as well as for their hit shows about identity and history, here the good doctor returns to their roots in London’s decadent cabaret scene. Expect old favourites and new discoveries, sequins and stardust, radiant ruffles and rampant repartee, purple poems, and sizzling live music. Featuring guest-spots from two other Jersey stars, the pop sensation Shea and the virtuoso violinist Alexander Lee-Briard, Hi-Vis promises to be an absolute blinder of a night!
