We have been producing seasonal cabaret shows for over 25 years.
It began with jazz trio Premier Cru's Sunday Speakeasy, and grew to Casson & The Brannick Academy's Cabaret in the Castle by way of a satirical Requiem at the Edinburgh Fringe.

At their heart has always been an open space in which we can experiment with ideas, test new material and play favourite songs with
a 'favoured few' chosen friends. In recent years we have called this
English Cabaret Hour.

'sophisticated cabaret culture lets its hair down. A triumph'

Musical Talk

Following the success of our Christmas playlist, 

we have plundered our library of recordings to create a Valentine's collection.

The story so far



Speakeasy Sunday residency La Bonne Crepe, After Midnight Cafe Royal Edinburgh

A changing cabaret of new and old songs by jazz-based trio Premier Cru (cellist Catherine Black, percussionist Chris Brannick, with Casson on piano and vocals) leads to regular appearances on BBC Radio 2's NightRide.

Come to the cabaret
