Divergence: A Festival of Madness presents for the second year, our evening of after dark entertainment Wonderland After Dark. This year we will be celebrating Unboxed Lives, with artists from a variety of performance styles, including burlesque, aerial arts, dance, cabaret, poetry and stand up. There will also be some glorious body painting pieces on show. The night will be an opportunity to see just how truly diverse, colourful, and skillful Mad, Divergent and Neurodivergent lives are, and showcase just how our community is enriched by our presences.

Join our Emcee for the night, boylesque crooner and professional show off, Mr Lola Illusion as he brings to the stage a glorious line up featuring the Queen of the Weird, Ruby Ruin. Last year she held space for the magic of Wonderland After Dark as our Mistress of Ceremonies, this year she will be bringing her unique style of equal parts glamour and oddness, classic showgirl and grunge goddess to the stage as our headliner.

Our line up is fully of contemplative joy, moving madness and straight heartfelt fun!
