Cabaret at The Cellar Bar

Quench your thirst for cabaret on the second Sunday of every month with leading West End performers in the Cellar Bar at South Hill Park Arts Centre.

The intimate space of the Cellar Bar (which used to be the old Cellar of the Mansion house that is now South Hill Park Arts Centre) provides the perfect setting for our candle lit cabaret evenings.

Each evening is a unique celebration of music, the artist, their life and a personal journey. Songs, stories, tears and laughter. Each cabaret is a different artist, a different journey, a different point of view….
