Simon & Harry cabaret show sells out again!

30th June 2011


Inside The PheasantrySimon & Harry packed out three nights at London's foremost cabaret venue - The Pheasantry on London's famous Kings Road.

One look at this historic Georgian building and you know that it has some amazing history to reveal. First opened as the Russian Dancing Academy in 1916, with the most famous pupil being a young lady named Peggy Hookham, later to be better known as Dame Margot Fonteyn. Although its history goes back even further to the days when the Royal household raised peasantry on land here. 


Some other residents who lived between its walls include Australian artist Martin Sharp, also Augustus John and Annigoni. Another revelation to this story is that Eleanor Thornton once lived here, who is she I hear you say! Well the next time you see a Rolls Royce look at the mascot on the bonnet, for she was the model for this Ecstasy mascot, the name it became known by. It was also a club in the 1930’s when Dylan Thomas was known to be a frequent patron. 


We can now admire the central archway thanks to our London saviour, Sir John Betjeman, a local resident himself, whom campaigned to keep most of this fine building intact. It has also acted as a night club with performances by Lou Reed, Queen and Hawkwind. Also Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, discovered Yvonne Elliman here, when cast for the original hit musical Jesus Christ Superstar. Another mega name to be associated with this building is Eric Clapton, whom in the mid sixties lived on the top floor.
