Cabaret Agency and producers Excess All Areas will produce the capital’s second celebration of the growing cabaret scene and honour the very best of its performers, promoters and supporters in a lavish event on Wednesday 13th February 2012.
In recent years London's cabaret scene has enjoyed a boom unprecedented since the days of music hall, with underground venues opening throughout the city, burlesque shows reaching the West End and cabaret work being embraced by institutions from the V&A and National Portrait Gallery to the Royal Opera House and the Old Vic, not to mention Britain's Got Talent and the Glastonbury festival.
An independent judging panel will decide the nominees (both long-list and short-list) for eleven awards plus a special ‘Outstanding Achievement’
This year’s panel consists of Sean Mooney (Beyond the Cabaret), Katherine Ives (Trilby Productions)
Leading variety entertainment specialists Excess All Areas is headed by Paul L Martin, who has dedicated 22 years to the art of cabaret having performed, taught, produced, promoted and written on the genre. www.londoncabaretawards.co.uk is now showing the long-list of nominations for each category and in early January this list will be whittled down to just 3 nominees for each category, who will be invited to the ceremony at The Royal Vauxhall Tavern.
Tickets to the public for this event are available at www.lastminute.com and are very limited as our focus is to celebrate and promote the hard work done in the past decade to help build our fantastic and diverse cabaret scene in London.
