Second Old Vic Variety Night takes place this Sunday

The second Variety Night at the Old Vic will take place this Sunday (6th March 2016). Comedian Mark Watson (pictured) returns to host the evening of entertainment.

The line-up includes Jeff McBride and Eugene Burger, DJ and musician MckNasty and all-male vocal group Only Men Aloud as well as poet and comedian Tim Key, the Echoes of Ellington Jazz Orchestra and winner of the Brass Category of BBC Young Musician of the Year 2014 Matilda Lloyd.

The Old Vic's Artistic Director Matthew Warchus says: "Following the enormous success of our debut event last November, I’m delighted to announce the next date in this hugely popular series of Old Vic Variety Nights. I’m very happy to say that comic genius Mark Watson will return as host to lead us, in his inimitable style, through a fun-filled evening of the best in Comedy, Music and Magic. We’re looking forward to another wonderful evening in this wonderful theatre."

Following the success of the first Variety Night in November 2015, the Old Vic’s Variety Nights are an integral part of Warchus’ vision for an eclectic inaugural season. The Variety Nights embrace the theatre’s history and its roots in music, dance and vaudeville.
