Creative Cabaret aims to bring a different kind of evening to the arts scene in Cambridge. It combines an unusual mix of music, comedy, performance poetry, film, philosophy and more... into one unforgettable evening.
We are passionate about the importance of high quality live performance – its power to transform and uplift.
We are also interested in experimenting with new forms of performance, and creating unexpected juxtapositions of genres.
Creative Cabaret was set up by Charlotte Sankey and Lucy Alexander. Charlotte was the founding Editor of Cambridge Agenda magazine in 2002 and now runs the marketing, publishing and design consultancy Creative Warehouse. Lucy is an experienced writer whose career started at the BBC; more recently worked at the Refugee Council. They met working at Christian Aid, London, 15 years ago.
We feel that Cambridge has an excellent tradition of classical concerts, lectures, literary events and gigs, but that the art scene lacks edge.
Creative Cabaret hopes to bring something fresh and a little adventurous. Something to make you laugh, cry, reflect... all in the company of friends,
After four sell-out events at the atmospheric Cambridge Union bar we have moved to the University Centre, a larger city-centre venue which can accommodate more audience members.
Please come along and give it a try! With your support since the first Cabaret in March 2013 we have turned the cabaret into a regular event.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST
Charlotte and Lucy
