Sybarite Nights | July Platform #15




Sybarite Nights – cabaret in an art gallery!


Join us in July for our monthly cabaret set in an art gallery!

This light-hearted mayhem always promises a fantastic bill, possibly including singing/comedy/magic/rapping and definitely some insults for good measure! 

A variety of exquisite local performers and talent from far and wide will be taking to the stage

The multi-talented artist, writer, composer, film historian, poet and broadcaster Jude Cowan Montague will be singing acapella

Female vocalist and MC Veronica Youdell will be performing her vocal tones and spoken flows, while Genio will be performing his characteristically expressive songs

And as usual, local singer Doc Martin will be treating us to his dance hall tunes and Greg Williams, solo artist of mellifluous angst, will be performing an acoustic set

Resident compere beyond compare Lindsay Moran will be introducing the line-up

As always it will be a truly unique celebration of music, performance, and community spirit

A superb selection of fine wines and signature cocktails will be available at the Leyden Gallery artBar

Please book early via Eventbrite as space is limited

*If you are interested in performing at one of our future events, then please drop us a message on and tell us what your special talent is*

About The Lab


As part of our platform to provide accessible opportunities to nurture new talent, The Scenic Route presents an intensive practical workshop exploring how to create original theatre collaboratively from scratch.


Through a series of masterclasses, practical exercises and rehearsals the group will investigate a range of techniques involved in devising a cross-disciplinary piece which brings together physical theatre, text and music.


The lab will culminate in a sharing of the work to an invited audience.


This is a rare opportunity to benefit from the combined expertise of respected practitioners, whilst practically applying their shared experience in a working ensemble.


Participants will take away a wealth of resources to build upon in future work, along with increased skill, confidence and understanding working in this form, plus connections with other artists.


The lab is open to both experienced and new artists alike, at any life stage, whether coming from a performance perspective, composition / musical direction, or playwriting.
