London's Variety Club for Kids: Cabaret for all ages, May 29/30

Showman Mat Ricardo (previously) writes, "I've always thought it was a shame that the resurgence in cabaret and variety shows has tended to be adult-centric. Late night sexy circus shenanigans are all well and good, but variety shows should be for everyone – so I did something about it!"

I'm hosting and curating two shows in a beautiful spiegeltent on London's South bank during half term school holiday, which will bring some of the World's top circus, magic, comedy and variety performers together in two completely different spectacular shows aimed at families. We've got illusionists, strong ladies, hula hoopers, jugglers, clowns, and suitcases full of surprises.


My plan is to drop the jaws of everyone that watches, show that a modern variety show is for everyone, and maybe inspire a few kids of run away and join the circus like I did.

Two shows only – 29th and 30th of May
