''Life's just a cabaret old chum''

Splendid entertainment last night at Wiltons Music Hall as a guest of Adele Thorpe, our Clerk, who had organised the trip to Wiltons on behalf of her Ward Club, Aldgate, of which she has recently been elected President.
A listed building Wiltons is the oldest surviving Grand Music Hall in the world. Originally 5 terraced houses, John Wilton opened Wiltons Music Hall in 1858. After many ups and downs it is now owned by a Trust and has 'events' on many nights of the week. Last night's show was the classic 'Cabaret' which many will remember from the famous film starring Liza Minnelli.
The performance was by drama students from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, a body celebrating its 150 anniversary this year. The performance was unquestionably well up to professional standard both in  music and acting. If you've never been to Wiltons, go, it's a remarkable place and I have little doubt you will have the same enjoyment that we had last night.
