Here at Prohibition we have the pleasure of working with and hosting events for some of the world’s finest performers and artists. From blues bands to jazz duos, jugglers to stilt-walkers, magicians to drag acts, the list goes on… So! In an effort to showcase just how diverse a range we have welcomed to both our hallowed stages over the last 8 years we’ve decided to start to put together a list of just some of these fantastic outfits and acts. We’ll add to this as we go along and feature bands and performers and acts who have held shows or gigged at Prohibition and even a few of those who are booked in for upcoming shows later in the season too.
