As nights get chilly and the stars come out, we've teamed up with some amazing talent to bring you what we think is the best series of autumn and winter Saturday nights out, possibly ever.

Yes, we bring you the FOUR Cs:  Cocktails, Cabaret, Campfires and Candlelight!

The campfire in our roof garden will be roaring as usual to warm your cockles and toast your complimentary marshmallows. The giant flares, hurricane lamps and all round cosiness will be very much in evidence.  The deluxe hot rum toddy stand will insure your blood is pumping and your singing voice is warmed up.  But that's only the start of it.. We invite you to descend the brand new grand staircase of Brunel's underground  Grand Entrance Hall, described as one of the most exciting new performance spaces and cultural attractions in London today for a very special SINGALONGA knees up with some amazing cabaret talent. And of course we will be serving our beautiful seasonal botanical cocktails and Hiver honey beer in our underground cocktail bar. 

Ukulele-wielding, cross-dressing "master showgirl" Tricity Vogue will entertain you with cheeky original cabaret show tunes, drinking songs, plenty of costume changes and an opportunity for a singalong.  Ms Vogue has been a sparkling light on the London Cabaret scene for over a decade, charming audiences across the capital and the country with her trademark wit, quirk and sauce. Her last show here sold out.

Mr. Tom Carradine, on the Ol' Joanna, presents an evening of timeless songs with audience participation.  Let your host lead you in a traditional cockney sing-a-long, with songs from the music hall era, WWI and II, the West End stage and traditional popular songs from acros the decades. A good old-fashioned knees-up! Mr Carradine is already a fixture on the UK's thriving vintage scene and brings with him a bit of a cult following.

There will be three cabaret sets at 7.15pm, 8.15pm and 9.15pm.
Guests are invited to bring their cocktails up into the garden, their hot rum toddies into the underground chamber, their food into both - we really are very relaxed.

The firepit, flares, food and toasted marshmallows will remain aglow for you to

enjoy in the garden and Engine House throughout the evening. Ms Vogue and/or MrCarradine will perform at regular intervals giving you time to sample our delights above and below

The extraordinarily talented Despina Siahuli, famed Greek chef and founder of PAN London will be serving up lovingly prepared sizzling seasonal Greek fare in the Engine House.

These promise to be 7 magical Saturday nights filled with mirth, merriment and marshmallows.  The perfect date night or meet-up with friends. We do hope you will join us.

Oh and please dress warmly - we can warm your cockles with a hot toddy or two but it gets blimmen' chilly!

“Tricity Vogue and her uke… recipe for one of the finest shows you’ll
 see. It’s cabaret to run down side-streets for – just get there early.”

Time Out London Critics’ Choice

“Celebrated London cabaret singer Tricity Vogue loves performing, and
 it shows. The big red smile on her face is contagious from the start.”
**** Broadway Baby

“Tricity Vogue - she of the twinkly eye, swoonsome voice and cheeky ukulele”

Time Out London Critics’ Choice

A storming slice of cabaret. **** ThreeWeeks

“Anyone else a massive fan of the divine Miss Vogue and her ukulele? Thought so.”

Time Out London Critics’ Choice

“Carradine’s Cockney Sing-a-long is a deceptively simple, winning formula,
brilliantly executed. A terrific night out.” Cabaret Scenes

“Tom Carradine really gets the atmosphere going.
As well as an accomplished musician, Carradine is a good showman with a
charming personality. The audience clearly love what he does.” www.capitalcabaretsandshowsscene.net

“Musical Director and Pianist Tom Carradine is a talented dapper chappie.
Versatility is his name and he compliments the 1920s and 30s era with
his musical prowess, adapting from suave sophistication to the very
jaunty Cockney Sing-a-Long! Three cheers for Mr Carradine, the Music
Hall and Cabaret artist aficionado.” Art Deco Traveller - A Guide to
