Held in the Vaults under Waterloo station, this year’s Mimetic Festival has seen an eclectic collection of shows spread out over a fortnight. Ex-London Cabaret Award judge Klare Wilkinson and This Is Cabaret’s Franco Milazzo saw over twenty shows covering burlesque, drag, musical comedy, magic, puppetry and songbook before deciding on who would walk away with the festival’s six cabaret awards.
On Saturday night, the pair announced the winners of the prizes for best production overall as well as the This Is Cabaret Best Newcomer award for best new talent seen at the festival. There were also four special judges’ awards. Here is the full list.
Best Cabaret Production: Lady Carol’s Lost And Found
This Is Cabaret Award For Best Newcomer: The Ruby Darlings Show
The Mimetic Festival will return in 2015.
