La Variete

La VarietéSince the turn of the twentieth century, Hackney Empire has been the beating heart of variety entertainment in the United Kingdom, attracting some of the biggest names from around the world to come and perform on its famous stage. Charlie Chaplin, Louis Armstrong, Tony Hancock and Liberace are just a few of the glittering galaxy of stars that have made their way to Mare Street to cement their reputation in front of the discerning yet adoring Hackney Empire crowd.

One hundred years and over a million visitors later, the Empire is set to define the current cabaret revival with a genre defying night of outstanding variety. The old school, the new guard, the weird, the wacky and wonderful will gather to show the world how it’s done in a show that celebrates the international flavour and spirit of excellence for which the Hackney Empire has always enjoyed an unrivalled reputation.

Susie McKenna, Creative Director of the theatre, has teamed up with Julie-Ann Laidlaw of the award winning Blond Ambition Events and celebrated compere and cabaret curator Desmond O’Connor to bring together the cream of the cabaret scene and to create several bespoke exclusive performances for La Varieté.
