London lifestyle & travels with kids and babies
Cadogan Hall shows have been very popular with our friends and family over the years, whilst Christmas in Kensington is once again a joyous, splendid and very diverse affair! And the Definitive Rat Pack spoilt the whole family in case you wonder if it is kids friendly: a certain 6 year old has been dancing on his chair; the 9 year old laughed his head off at the banter and assessed the orchestra; the significant one and I hummed the songs and loved the naughty jokes
The Rat Pack may be stretching 17 years to the original musical tribute to Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Junior and Dean Martin, but the Definitive Rat Pack performance was fun, tonic and joyful! There is a large Christmas tree on the Cadogan Hall’s stage, plenty of Christmas songs, even a cool drinks trolley and gorgeous outfits for Frank, Martin and Sam as well as the Golddiggers!
A London leading venue within the heart of Kensington and Chelsea with excellent acoustic and comfy setting, Cadogan Hall is a lovely choice for classical and contemporary music alike, dance, theatre and and conferences. We started them young and introduced them to Bear Hunt, took them Round the world in 80 days, so what a joyous, privileged continuation the Definitive Rat Pack has been!
Rebellious and glitz loving, The Definitive Rat Pack brings the party to London, whilst Manhattan Swing Orchestra is fab and festive. The coolest party in town warmed up the hearts, drifting us back in time, soaking the glam and bubbles, Vegas coming to Sloane Square : My way, Got you Under My Skin, Volare and seasonal classics including funky Silent Night, White Christmas, Winter Wonderland and so much more
Christmas in Kensington is back to the usual festive affair and at Cadogan Hall is difficult to choose from the Carols, to The Snowman and Gruffalo for younger kids, to a Dickensian Christmas with Stephen Mangan (we adore him on stage and in person!), to The Viennese Spectacular and so much more! For parents with kids in tow we warmly recommend close by (literally 10 minutes by foot) the Gingerbread City on the lovely pedestrian Motcomb Street.

Disclosure: Many thanks to Cadogan Hall for the complimentary tickets , it has been a sheer delight to be there and write about.
