On Sunday 12 April, the little show with a big heart – La Soirée – was awarded the prestigious Laurence Olivier Award for Best Entertainment. Following their Olivier success, the theatrical phenomenon will be returning to London for a second consecutive Christmas residency at the Southbank Centre’s Winter Festival.
The strictly limited run will again take place in the deliciously decadent La Soirée Spiegeltent from 27 October until the 17 January. All standard tickets for November shows will be £25 or less if booked before 21t June 2015, with £10 off posh seats.
From 22 June – 31 October bookers can enjoy £10 off all ticket prices (except standing).
Before returning to London in the Autumn, La Soirée will be continuing their world tour with dates in Australia, Denmark, Hong Kong and a stop off at a very special festival. La Soirée’s band of troubadours, dazzling divas, and cabaret royalty will be donning their wellies and pitching their tents on Glastonbury’s hallowed fields to headline Glastonbury’s Circus Big Top on all three nights of the festival. Promising festival-goers an electric start to the nights, this will be La Soirée’s Glastonburypremière.
Creative producer Brett Haylock is currently rounding up La Soirée’s dysfunctional family of new burlesque, circus sideshow and variety acts so the roll-call of contemporary carnies set to titillate London from October will be announced soon. However, be prepared to be reunited with some very dear friends alongside some fresh faces in the ever-growing La Soirée family.
Brett Haylock said: “We thought our tenth anniversary year was a big one, but this one has shattered all possible expectations already; an Olivier win, headlining Glastonbury’s circus fields, our first seasons in Hong Kong and Manilla, and finishing with a return to our beloved London, it’s a heady ride none of us want to step off! We can’t wait.”
