- Hackney tension straps performer LJ Marles
- Hula hoop artists Michele Clark and Symoné
- Hand to hand performers Leon Fagbemi and Klodi Dabkiewicz
- Amy G, a cabaret act who has been performing on the La Soiree stage for over 10 years
- Cabaret Decadense, Canadian puppeteers who return to La Soiree featuring Andre-Anne Le Blanc and Stephen Quinlan
- Daredevil Chicken Club, Vegas couple Jonathan Taylor and Anne Goldman’s raunchy slapstick comedy act
In addition to this year’s performances, La Petite Soiree will offer a fun, hour-long, family-friendly version of the show. It will run at 3pm on Saturdays and throughout the Christmas holidays.
Further acts for La Soiree are to be announced.
