Underbelly Festival 2017 – Cabaret

The Udderbelly is back and two of the annual highlights have returned to the Spiegeltent on the Southbank in 2017: The Black Cat Cabaret and Miss Polly Rae’s  Between The Sheets
At the weekend, Londoners were treated to the first performance of The Black Cat Cabaret and, with only two more dates in the diary (5th August and 22nd September) demand for tickets will be hot hot hot!
The Black Cat Cabaret is responsible for making the Summer season at the Underbelly Festival the place to go for fans wanting to experience modern cabaret in all of its wondrous forms – from the sacred to the profane, the lyrical to the downright louche.

Taking place in the stunning spiegeltent that combines theatre-style seating with the thrill of the big top, Parisian-inspired The Black Cat is the perfect choice for a unique night out. Guests can expect to encounter a merry band of high-kicking showgirls, jaw-dropping acrobats, comic street singers, a fire-breathing siren and daredevil aerialists – all bound together with a belle époque sense of giddy abandonment.

Between The Sheets first hit London with its new show for 2017, last month. Now there are only 5 dates left: 20th July, 4th August, 25th August, 8th September and 29th September.

​It’s all about the thrill with Miss Polly Rae and Between The Sheets is a tantalising display of late-night cabaret acts performed by an exceptional troupe, hand-picked from the worlds of contemporary burlesque, circus, song and dance. In the true spirit of burlesque, this titillating modern revue features an array of sensational acts and hilarious performances, showcased by burlesque superstar Miss Polly Rae. Sparkling with comic naughtiness, Between The Sheets blends side-tickling comedy with gasp-inducing spectacle, in one high-energy and distinctly modern variety show.
