Cabaret Playroom has been hosted by the Albany since September 2014. Since then a veritable who’s who of artists have brought their experiments and works-in-progress to the intimate studio space, to take the audience on a journey that’s often as much of a surprise to the performers themselves.
Each show is unique and features a selection of short performances from a wide range of artists, genres and styles, hosted by Tricity Vogue.
Past events have featured work from established and emerging artists alike, including Sarah Louise Young, Paul Martin, Holly Penfield, Matthew Floyd Jones, Ria Lina, Topsie Redfern, Jon Hicks, Claudia Palazzo, and Lord Hicks.

Ralph Bogard presents SINGO! Ever been on a night out at a shitty pub where the regulars sing the same stuff and it takes 4 pints to pluck up the courage to select a song only to be told you’re too late to sing? Well SINGO! Will change all that! Leave the option anxiety at home as host and karaoke king Ralph Bogard will put everything into the hands of fate, whilst getting to know you as well.
Diva Regina Globetrotting songstress Diva Regina brings you glamour, comedy songs and Brexit despair for a cabaret performance bursting with European flair. Thanks to the soon-to-be-defunct EU free movement she has been regularly spotted at London’s most exciting cabaret and musical comedy nights including Apothecary Cabaret, Bar Wotever, The Distraction Club, Luscious Cabaret and Vicious Von Vixen’s Vaudeville, but things are quickly taking a turn for the worst, and she has been in deep yet glamorous mourning since 31st January. What will this post-Brexit world look like? She has no idea, but she’s not afraid to sing about it!
Jack Clearwater is David in ‘DAVID’. What if you had your own android? Your own David Byrne android? What would you have him do? ‘DAVID’ is a lipsync solo fusing radical sound design, choreography and (projection? See below) to examine the murky future of machine consciousness, shining a spotlight on our embodied entanglements with technology. Witness the next generation David, launching April 28th.
