Bored of the usual Christmas panto? No problem – Black Cat Cabaret is here to lavish you with this titillating festive alternative. Combining cabaret, musical and comic acts, high skills circus and original music, this is a dark and daring visual feast – the closest you’ll get to that bygone era of after-hours Montmartre – without a time machine, that is. Stars of the show include the jaw-dropping aerialist Katharine Arnold, Black Cat’s resident drag queen Meth and operatic diva Lili La Scala, plus a few seductive surprises. Performed in a wood-panelled 1920s style spiegeltent in Leicester Square, there are six dates between now and the new year so pull up your stockings and stop dithering – these tickets will go fast. Black Cat’s New Year’s Eve Ball goes on until 2am, for those who want to make the leap into 2018 with a slice of sequinned, high-kicking hedonism. Dress code applies, naturellement.
