London’s favourite purrrveyors of dark and daring cabaret entertainment return with a spectacular show, breathing new life into the decadent world of vintage Montmartre.
Upon entering the glorious, mirrored surroundings of the Underbelly spiegeltent, guests can expect to encounter at close quarters 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 epoque sense of giddy abandonment.

The Black Cat has made a name for itself as the place to experience modern cabaret in all of its wondrous forms – from the sacred to the profane, the lyrical to the downright louche. Returning to the Southbank for a 4th summer season, these shows take place in a stunning setting that combines theatre-style seating with the thrill of the big top.
The 2017 summer run will feature Black Cat Cabaret’s original, “after-hours Montmartre” show, which is returning for the first time since 2014. Inspired by the heyday of Parisian cabaret culture, yet with a timeless quality all of its own, the show is a veritable who’s who of the London scene. Step over the threshold and encounter absinthe-addled artistes, flame-haired courtesans and bittersweet comic chanteuses, all presided over by The Black Cat’s “compère beyond compare” Dusty Limits.
The BCC’s trademark combination of cabaret and comic acts with high skills circus, original music and choreography makes it a night out like no other.
