Christmas Cabaret 2017

Friday 8th and Saturday 9th December 2017

After the 2015 Kuckoo Klub with a pre-war theme and last year’s Festive Fifties it’s no surprise that 2017’s show was based on the Swinging Sixties!

The evening was themed around and inspired by the suave and debonair James Bond (Connery edition of course) as well as the affectionate spoof and swinging secret agent Austin Powers as made famous by Mike Myers’ set of films  with a romp through the sixties and its music.

Whether you preferred Casino Royale with David Niven and Woody Allen as opposed to Daniel Craig,   or felt that James Bond was better spoofed in Our Man Flint or by Dean Martin’s boozy super-spy Matt Helm the comedy was just as sophisticated as that in Carry On Spying. …

Who are SPECTRE? What does it stand for?
Why are James Bond and Austin Powers working together?

The evening started with a luxury sixties themed meal  at 8pm before the entertainment at 9pm with a set of acts including singing, dancing, and little comedy and magic too!

The cast (which includes some old faces as well as new ones) provided some great music from the fab sounds that the decade produced!

While we increased the price this year we kept the familiar features of previous years – a bar with a speciality cocktail, themed decorations for the Queen’s Hall, and that special CDS  Cuckoo Production experience!
