Joining the troupe for their final weeks in the capital is cabaret superstar Camille O’Sullivan, who made her long-awaited return to La Soirée on 21 December.

Other acts include the legendary English Gents, astonishing contortionist Captain Frodo, critically-acclaimed comedian Asher Treleaven, unforgettable quirky comedienne Mooky, punked-up aerial ballet star Bret Pfister and showman Mario Queen of the Circus. Making their London debuts this year are the heartstoppingly talented Melanie Chy and mesmerising aerial artist Yammel Rodriguez.

La Soirée  – which has now seen more than 75 artists take their place on the iconic red stage across five continents, with over 150 acts between them – will next be heading down under to play Perth’s Fringe World Festival from 22 January until 6 March 2016. 

Bottom line?  Londoners have just a few weeks to dust off the cobwebs and sashay on over to the La Soirée Spiegeltent, a velvet draped salon of carved wood, polished mirrors, crystal and leadlight.
