A Gatsby Christmas ★★★★ The London Cabaret Club | Nov 26 - Dec 23, 2021


The Roaring Twenties are back! The London Cabaret Club's A Gatsby Christmas will give you a taste of that decade with a nod to Fitzgerald's iconic character. Here's a chance to welcome the season or celebrate a special occasion with a unique cabaret experience. Depending on your seating, food choice and included beverages, there are six booking options from which to choose, ranging in price from £90 to £180. They all include the main show and the after-hours disco. Starting around 6 pm, this is a full evening of entertainment, and we thoroughly enjoyed the music, dancing and acrobatic displays. Both singers and dancers were excellent and displayed their considerable talents with a repertoire that ranged from the 1920s right through to Lady Gaga and Kylie Minogue. The dancing styles were equally eclectic and the versatility displayed was quite amazing. Still, our favourite acts had to be the extraordinary physical displays by the acrobats. They really brought down the house with some breathtaking feats of derring-do. Indeed, all the entertainment was first class, and if we had a quibble it was with the staging. There were periods when only performers' backs were exposed to certain sections of the audience. Despite this issue, all of the audience were engaged by the performances and cheerfully clapped, hummed along, and gasped with awe. A hundred years have passed since the Jazz Age, and our own experience of the 20s sometimes doesn't always seem that cheerful – so our advice is make time for this very special cabaret and revisit the good times!
