A little history of Cabaret

Fabaret at The Shankly - Cabaret

Unless you have been living under a rock then you must be aware of the musical Cabaret starring a very young Lisa Moneli. The bowler hat, short shorts, and suspenders are an iconic Hollywood image today.

But the origins of Cabaret can be traced to the early 16th century in France. The meaning of the word originally pointed to the venue the performance was held in. Be it a bar, restaurant or nightclub, cabaret was often performed to patrons who were enjoying another leisure activity, the performance just being the background filler.

In short, Cabaret was not as grand as a theatre performance and came just short of being classed as a concert. Cabaret was essentially the DJ of ancient times, a soundtrack to accompany your evening meal or drinks.

Book your Fabaret today

The Shankly Hotel will be hosting this Fabaret spectacular for foreseeable Fridays to come.

Make sure you have your seat booked and like Lisa sang;

“What good is sitting alone in your room? Come hear the music play. Life is a Cabaret old chum Come to the Cabaret.”

Why not surprise somebody who loves live entertainment and book a Friday night at The Shankly?

You and your party can then enjoy a fun Fabaret performance in the Bastion Bar and Restaurant and then a luxury overnight stay in one of our Bill Shankly themed hotel rooms.

Fabaret is free to attend and the curtain lifts at 20:00 pm this Friday, do you have your dancing shoes ready?

Fans of dance music from far and wide will flock together in a celebration. Coming to salute the greatest names of house, trance, drum and base, funk, techno music and all the sub categories in between.

A festival that began as an offshoot from the Liverpool nightclub Cream, and has since had variations pop up across the globe.

Never one to let down the crowds, this year sees organisers putting together a structure of enormous proportions. The first of its kind in Europe to house technology that will transform surroundings for revellers throughout the event.

Always providing visual experiences to take your breath away, this year will bring new meaning to the phrase mind blowing.

Held at Daresbury Park in Cheshire, a four-day event that will change the festival scene for generations to come. Shuttle buses run from Liverpool Lime street and central locations so book a stay with us at The Shankly Hotel and enjoy a little luxury during the festival downtime.

Taking place from the 25th – 28th August.

The number one UK festival of all time, Glastonbury

Steeped in the history pages of outdoor music events, Glastonbury takes centre stage. The festival grounds themselves have expanded over the years to city size proportions. Glastonbury is reported to need its very own infrastructure supplying water and electricity to the 5-day event.

Bringing in gargantuan crowds of partygoers, a mix of the Glasto regulars and fresh first timers. All looking to experience their own versions of the festival.

Still retaining the original hippy vibe of counterculture, the Green Futures and Healing fields spaces are very popular among those who attend every year.

Since 1970 the stages have seen the likes of the late David Bowie, Led Zeppelin the Chemical Brothers, Coldplay and Oasis headlining. In more recent years the main have played host to Queen Bee Beyoncé and, to many Glasto regulars upset, Kanye West. Controversially taking the main stage as headline act of 2015.

A true icon of the UK festival scene, worth a visit at least once in a lifetime.
