London's premier female cabaret and comedy show is returning to the borough for one night only.

The Femmes by the Thames has been running at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern for the past two years, following rave reviews and spectacular performances.

But it all began in 2007 with a short monthly run on the Battersea Barge.

To coincide with the Wandsworth Arts Festival, The Femmes on the Thames will be back on the barge for one very special night.

The aim of the event is to showcase talented female comedians, musicians and cabaret acts.

Femmes on the line-up include Shazia Mirza, an award winning stand up performer who has been on Have I got News For You and NBC's Last Comic Standing.

There will also be performances from Cariad Lloydd, presenting her bizarre and deluded characters from seven-year old Andrew and Cockney Sam with his murderous songs of wow.

Wandsworth based character act Susan Harrison joins the line up, which all hosted by talented compère host Rosie Wilby.

Femmes on the Thames, Battersea Barge, Nine Elms Lane, Battersea, May 17, Doors 7.30pm, Tickets £5, call 020 7498 0004 to reserve.
