★★★★ | Cirque Du Cabaret, London Wonderground
The Wonderground features a packed programme of circus, cabaret and family entertainment, all taking place in the beautiful 1920s Paradiso Spiegeltent. There’s also oddities, curiosities and eccentricities from the Sideshow Wonderland run by Guinness World Record-Holder, The Space Cowboy, and the 60-metre high Star Flyer gives you an unrivalled view over London’s rooftops (if you can bear to keep your eyes open, I couldn’t!).
There’s a huge range of top class entertainment from the saucy Briefs Boy-lesque, the breath-taking Limbo, the hilarious Tina C plus loads more burlesque, cabaret as well as more family-themed fun. It’s definitely worth getting down there just to soak up the atmosphere on a summer’s evening and hang out in style somewhere that’s a bit more exciting than being huddled together on the pavement of a sweltering London boozer getting jostled by pedestrians.
I was lucky enough to catch the Cirque du Cabaret, hosted by the dazzling wit that is Champagne Charlie. Set in the glorious Spiegeltent with all its glittering glamour, this was an atmospheric night that sizzled with sex appeal and risqué humour. Featuring the cream of London cabaret, comedy and burlesque in an ever-changing line-up, this has got to be one of the finest nights out in the city.
The next Cirque du cabaret is on the 8th of August at The London Wonderground. Read more here: http://www.cirqueducabaret.com
