Could it be magic? Wonderville will open a new, purpose-built cabaret venue in the West End, opening this summer. The Wonderville cabaret venue will be at 57-60 Haymarket, the former Planet Hollywood.

Wonderville will open as a café and bar from 12noon - 12am. Wonderville performances will then take place from Tuesday – Sunday at 8pm and weekend matinees at 3pm.

“Expect the weirdest, wildest, most wonderful acts of the London variety scene entertaining you from every corner of Wonderville. You cannot be anything but utterly wowed by these hilarious and stunning talents. It will be a night of true wonderment... and anything could happen!" said Wonderville creative director, Laura Cocoran.

Wonderville: Magic and Cabaret is a variety show that features world-class talents as they present their acts. Wonderville will begin previews on 9 August, with an opening night on 16 August, and initial performances to 30 October.

The 2022 cast includes Chastity Belt, Desmond O’Connor, Mysti Vine, Billy Kidd, Matricks, Dee Riley, Marc Oberon, Pixie Le Knot, Snookie Mono, Aurora Starr, Abi Collins, and Pi the Mime.

In a four-star Wonderville review at the Palace Theatre, our critic said: “If Stan Lee had created the Marvel characters as magicians, then the acts in Wonderville would be the Avengers. Wonderville rolls an evening of unbelievable stunts presented by consummate professionals. The only trick the show needs to pull off now is finding a permanent London billing.”
