About This Venue

 

The Porter Tun is one of the largest and oldest unobstructed event spaces in London. An exposed King Post timber roof giving a clear span of 60ft above a 778 square metre antique wooden floor makes it a perfect location for a Christmas party.

 

December 2019 welcomes Cabaret to the Porter Tun. Performing to raucous crowds in crumbling vaudevilles and forgotten music halls, people talked of outrageous performances, intoxicating music and hedonistic nights the likes of which the city had never seen. Many denied its existence, unable to find it for themselves and only able to rely on the words of those who had claimed to witness one of these spellbinding nights.

 

As London fell upon hard times, the cabaret disappeared. Some dismissed it as nothing more than an urban legend told as a whimsical reminder of better times, but there were others who knew they were not of this earth. They knew one day they would return, to bring happiness and joy to those with limitless imaginations prepared to believe in and embrace the astonishing sights that went before them.

 

This December, The Porter Tun will become the broken down forgotten theatre brought mysteriously back to life by the spirit of entertainment and the soul of music as the cabaret performs for one last time.
