With a pedigree unrivalled on the London scene, The Black Cat Cabaret brings together exceptional acrobats, comics, dancers and singers, to create a spectacular new bohemia in every venue they visit. The show won the prestigious “Best Production” prize at the London Cabaret Awards 2014 and has been greeted by 5-star reviews in the London and UK press. Originally inspired by the absinthe-soaked heyday of Montmarte as well as Edwardian London’s glamorous cabaret underworld, our shows have taken several forms and formats, but will always combine the sophisticated and the unexpected.
The company has hosted pop-up cabaret supper club seasons at some of the capital’s most glamorous off-radar locations, as well as producing regular sell-out shows at Hotel Cafe Royal, London Wonderground, The Old Market, Rah Rah Room and Christmas in Leicester Square, and produced exceptional private events all over the UK and worldwide.
Slinking into sites across London as diverse as they are decadent, The Black Cat Cabaret delivers the delights of contemporary cabaret and circus at its very best – along with fine dining, walkabout entertainment and after-parties to keep you dancing until the early hours.
2018 saw the cabaret felines continuing to wow audiences with “Salon des Artistes” at Zedel weekly, and a 6 week run headlining the Underbelly Festival spiegeltent at the Southbank with the première of a new theatrical circus show “Black Cat: Bohemia”.
2019 sees the company add to its roster of residencies with a new weekly late night cabaret at Boulevard Theatre in Soho (from Nov 2019), “The Haunted Ballroom” series of halloween parties at The Old Market in Brighton, and appearances at the Chichester Festival spiegeltent.
