James Bond-themed cabaret show London Never Dies will leave you slightly shaken and a little bit stirred


It's been a long wait for the new Bond movie No Time To Die – but London Cabaret Club has been keeping fans of the iconic film franchise happy with its new Bond-themed show.

London Never Dies is billed as an immersive cabaret night set to music from the James Bond films – and all the hits are there, including Adele's Skyfall, Wings' Live And Let Die and Tina Turner's GoldenEye.

But it's not quite the showstopper you might expect.

When buying tickets, guests get a choice of what theirs will include for the night.

These range from a silver ticket, which costs £50 and doesn't include food or drink, to royal diamond tickets from £165, which include a reserved VIP area for the show, canapes on arrival, half a bottle of Moet Chandon, a themed cocktail and four-course menu.

We had diamond tickets, which cost £90 per person and include canapes, a three course meal, a cocktail and a VIP area with a perfect view of the stage in the centre of the room.

The evening began with some pre-show entertainment in the bar and a few appetisers, like olives and smoked salmon and cream cheese canapes.

While the food was delicious, the saxophonist merely served as background music while we were waiting to go into the main event.

We were then ushered into the main ballroom for the cabaret show – a stunning setting, with the stage in the round so everyone can see easily.

When it came to the actual show, there's no denying the group of good-looking performers are very talented at singing and dancing.

The men, dressed in slick suits, and the women, in stunning cocktail dresses, didn't put a foot wrong – and the lead male singer's voice was incredible.

The problem was everything felt very tame, especially in comparison to other cabaret shows like those on offer at Proud Embankment and Cafe de Paris – where fire-eaters and aerial acrobatics are packed in.

While there were some of these risk-taking acts included in London Never Dies, they felt few and far between.

There was also a dog act with a stubborn canine who got stage fright during our performance, which was a shame.

Regardless of this, the food and service throughout the night was excellent, and definitely made the show more enjoyable.

Plus, the DJ – who played music in between stage numbers and finished the night off with an after-party – really got the crowd going with some great, nostalgic tunes.

London Never Dies is a fun night out for any James Bond fan, but it will only leave you slightly shaken, and a little bit stirred.
