London Cabaret Club

(We’re not sure how much burlesque is really in this one, but we include it anyway!) The Queen Of Roses is a traditional British show with a modern twist, based on the early formation of the four nations that make up the United Kingdom. Expect acts such as a Victorian waltz, Scottish Drummers, Irish dancers, Welsh singers… and HRH’s very own dancing soldiers. The experience at The London Cabaret Club isn’t just limited to the stage. From British tapas dishes to original cocktails and glamorous hosts, it’s a top-notch night out. Tickets from £43.
