The evening will be directed and hosted by internationally famed cabaret star, Dusty Limits, who will play the role of the ageless host Dante, treating guests to a macabre burlesque performance with a selection of special guests. Dusty, also known as Dorian Black, is an acclaimed singer and all-round performer who has risen to become one of the most celebrated figures on the New Cabaret scene. Considered to be the scene’s ‘Trailblazer’, Dusty remains the only person to win three London Cabaret Awards in a single category.

The artfully social Scarfes Bar evokes a convivial atmosphere with its roaring fire, shelves filled with over one thousand books, handpicked by a Portobello antique dealer, and Gerald Scarfe’s collection of amusing and conversation-provoking paintings that adorn the marble walls. The array of quirky details, velvet armchairs and sofas makes it a unique and spacious venue.
