An integral part of Matthew Warchus’ vision for an eclectic inaugural season, the Old Vic Variety Nights embrace the theatre’s history and its roots in music, dance and vaudeville. The Old Vic Variety Nights aim to reinvigorate a much cherished and nostalgic format with a contemporary twist, combining established names in music, magic and comedy with the very best of the current generation. 

The Old Vic welcomes back comedian Mark Watson as host for the evening that will feature a range of talent including world renowned magicians Jeff McBride and Eugene Burger, DJ and musician MckNasty and sensational all-male vocal group, Only Men Aloud, winners of BBC One’s Last Choir Standing. Further acts will be announced in due course.

Artistic Director Matthew Warchus says: ‘Following the enormous success of our debut event last November, I’m delighted to announce the next date in this hugely popular series of Old Vic Variety Nights. I’m very happy to say that comic genius Mark Watson will return as host to lead us, in his inimitable style, through a fun-filled evening of the best in Comedy, Music and Magic. We’re looking forward to another wonderful evening in this wonderful theatre.’
