The BCC at Underbelly Boulevard Feb 10, 17 and Mar 9 revealed!
We are tickled pink to be unveiling a handful of Black Cat shows at the wonderful Underbelly Boulevard. The history of BCC at Underbelly spans over a decade – so joining our old friends at their new home in Soho seemed an opportunity too good to miss!

Yes it’s been 10 years since The BCC’s ground-breaking original dinner show premièred at Café de Paris. Many spin-offs, 22 theatrical seasons and a whole bunch of shorter runs, residencies or one-off performances later, and we are still serving up the claws out, dark and daring cabaret confections. Stay tuned for retrospective features here in coming months, take a little look back in a recent post by David over on our INSTAGRAM.
We had a great time premiering HALCYON NIGHTS back in August 2022. We took 29 audiences to a nightclub from the Golden Age, a darkly glittering jewel where showbiz goes to get loose. The Halcyon will be back soon and you can learn more about that show HERE
We produced a circus and high skills cabaret spectacular for The Ned NYE 2022, unveiling a new custom stage and aerial performance rig in the high vaulted ceilings of the Banking Hall. You can watch a little video of the event HERE
We presented 5 very special days of Bohemia performances, against the odds, in Monte Carlo in January 2021. Retrospective post looking back on the 2018 original Southbank production of the show HERE
Black Cat: Bohemia at Underbelly ended in fine feline form!
Our headline presentation for the 10th anniversary year of Underbelly Festival, Southbank closed on September 30th ’18. 41 packed houses and standing ovations later and we couldn’t be prouder of our cast and team, and the psychedelic cabaret-circus joyride which was created this year. Thanks to everyone who came along. Further information on the show HERE– and Bohemia will be back in 2019, watch this space!
We had a marvellous time in 2017 at the Underbelly Festival at the Southbank summer season, and the winter spiegeltent of Christmas in Leicester Square, all of which was topped off by two phenomenal, sold out NYE events – take a peek at the image gallery HERE

‘Salon des Artistes’
Our award-winning Salon des Artistes was originally born at Hotel Cafe Royal, Regent St, W1, and was hailed as the most upscale 5 star cabaret in town before moving just around the corner to the gorgeous deco surroundings of Brasserie Zédel. A timeless cabaret which is melodious, provocative and just downright hilarious, combined with a full fine dining experience.
