London Festival of CabaretComedian Alexander Armstrong (famously one half of comedy duo Armstrong & Miller, and host of TV quiz show Pointless) makes his cabaret debut at the inaugural London Festival of Cabaret, a month-long festival taking place at various venues including The Crazy Coqs, The Pheasantry, Soho Theatre and St James Theatre. The comic, who has always had an interest in music, will be performing with his band, playing a new show created especially for the festival - Celebrate The Great British Songbook which includes everything from Benjamin Britten to Spandau Ballet. Other well known acts appearing at the festival are Michael Feinstein who is joined by Elaine Paige and Julian Ovenden at the Palace Theatre, Kit and McConnel, Steve Ross, and musical star Janie Dee. There will also be free masterclasses from Maria Friedman and Barb Jungr, and a night celebrating emerging performers and songwriters.
