A special Saturday Night edition of Cabaret at The Merc, we welcome back our annual New Year’s Eve-themed Cabaret. Complete with a champagne toast (sparkling cider for those under 21) and countdown, music from the Great American Songbook and an exceptional group of performers and musicians, our NYE Cabaret is a wonderful way to ring in 2018 in style without the hassle of the crowds.
We hope you will join us for this special evening as we celebrate where we’ve been and raise a toast to what’s to come!
