Will you be sad to see 2012 go? Are the grey skies and rainy weather getting you down? It’s time to dry those tears and turn that frown upside down as one lucky This Is Cabaret reader gets the chance to party on with a friend into 2013, courtesy of White Mischief.


Evil chap-hopper Professor Elemental will return to White Mischief’s last show of the year, on hosting duties

White Mischief’s New Year’s Eve Variety Extravaganza takes place at Bush Hall and is packed to the rafters with cracking talent. YouTube sensation Professor Elemental will be dishing out some chap-hop emceeing and hosting a raucous blend of cabaret, comedy and circus. Radio 5 favourite Mitch Benn lines up alongside acts including ping pong maestro Rod Laver, acrobats So and So Circus, aerialists Jackie Le and Greville Matthews, plus heaps of burlesque from Lady Cave, Miss Cairo Mascara and Australian dancer The Diamond Dahlia.
