Cabaret and Dinner in The Drawing Room

Christian Holder enjoyed a hugely successful career as a leading dancer with the Joffrey Ballet in New York, where he worked with most of the major choreographers of the 20th century, including Jerome Robbins, Agnes de Mille and Leonide Massine.
Christian returned home to London in 2009 and used his natural creativity and gift for storytelling to migrate from dance to song. For the past three years he has been perfecting his very personal cabaret, performing songs interwoven with anecdotes to create a vibrant tapestry of his life experiences, both on and off stage.
"Holder succeeds in weaving a spell over his audience... His ability to deliver truth and drama through song enables him to captivate an audience and leave them wanting more."
Christian will be accompanied by musical director, Philip Foster.
Members are invited to book into The Drawing Room to dine from the à la carte menu, with first reservations at 8pm, and last at 9.30pm.
Christian will perform two 25-minute sets between 9.30pm and 11pm, and there will be one short interval.
Cover charge £15 per person.
