We have been having a fun summer at Show Off! Toby Hine, Nic Gibney and Matthew Gent have all hosted in recent weeks, and we have enjoyed a lot of shared music on the long summer nights. Last time, our lovely regulars were joined by a large, friendly group celebrating the birthday of Carly and Emma.

Matthew Gent is hosting again this Friday (the 24th of July), and then Sarah Lark is re-joining us for the 7th and 21st of August. We are very much looking forward to all three nights!

Lots of News

Toby, Nathan and BenThe weeks have been flying by, and we have all sorts of exciting news!

As Ben Stock mentioned when he was hosting on the 1st of May, the West End Bake Off, a fundraiser for Acting for Others, will be taking place this Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in St Anne's Churchyard. Barbara Windsor and Christopher Biggins will be judging cakes baked by people from West End shows - and cakes will be available for sale. Ben is keeping very busy at the moment: he is also at Crazy Coqs for a return engagement from the 26th to the 28th of May. Details are on this page.

Show Off! MD Nathan Martin will also be appearing elsewhere in London next week, acting as Musical Director for Craig Pomranz's show at the St. James Studio.

Show Off! will next take place on Friday 29 May, with Nic Gibney as host. In the meantime, here is a photo of Ben Stock, Nathan Martin and Toby Hine shortly before the doors opened on 15 May.

Nathan and MatthewWe have thoroughly enjoyed the first weeks of our sixth year, and the warmer weather and brighter evenings. We have also seen lots of new faces at Show Off!, with many lovely and enthusiastic first-timers thrilling us alongside our wonderful loyal regulars.

Because May starts on a Friday, we actually have three nights in May! Ben Stock will be hosting for the first time since 2014 on the 1st of May. Sharon Ballard will then make her Show Off! hosting debut on Friday the 15th, before Nic Gibney returns to the microphone on the 29th. It should be a very exciting month for Show Off!

As always, there will be a Facebook "event" for each night through which anyone can reserve a spot or share the details of the night with other Facebook friends. These can be found at our Facebook page. The Facebook event page for Friday the 1st of May is here.

Five Years!

Thank you to everyone who joined us last night to celebrate Show Off!'s fifth anniversary. Nic Gibney and Sarah Lark, who shared hosting duties, were joined by Toby Hine and Ben Stock - and Show Off! MD Nathan Martin, who has been with us since day one - in marking the occasion in front of a full house.

Here are a few pictures from the big night.

We look forward to the months and years to come - and we are delighted that we can now officially say that Show Off! is in its sixth year!

Looking forward to 2015

Nathan, Sarah and Toby2014 has flown by, and now it's time to look forward to the New Year. Show Off! debuted at Koha on 6 March 2010, which means that 6 March 2015 - which is a Show Off! night - will be our fifth anniversary! We will be sharing more news about our anniversary plans a bit closer to that date.

In the meantime, we are looking forward to fun nights in January and February. The delightful Nic Gibney will be hosting Show Off! on the 9th and 23rd of January, with Show Off! MD Nathan Martin at the piano. We really enjoy winter nights at Show Off!, and we are particularly excited to see everyone again after our longest break yet. We hope that you will join us.

Hosts for February and beyond will be announced soon. We plan to add one or two exciting newcomers on the roster in the coming months, to join our beloved existing hosts.

Pictured above are Nathan Martin, Sarah Lark and Toby Hine. Sarah popped by after Les Mis on 12 December for a pre-Christmas visit.
