Dive head-on into a glittering winter wonderland at this immersive reimagining of the festive classic taking place at the Tuff Nut Jazz Club, a new pop-up jazz club under the Royal Festival Hall.

Brought together by Olivier Award-winning choreographer Drew McOnie and Mercury-nominated jazz artist Cassie Kinoshi, Nutcracker sees premier dancers of The McOnie Company performing to Tchaikovsky’s unforgettable score, reimagined for a live onstage jazz band.

Packed with hope, heart and humour, this mischievous contemporary production of Nutcracker leads audiences on a wild-spirited technicolour adventure of self-acceptance.

The show has already garnered rave reviews with the Guardian declaring it "a Christmas dream of love that goes with a swing" while the Standard described it as "sultry, clever and a real Christmas treat".

Where: The Tuff Nut Jazz Club occupies the space that was the Spirtland bar and club, accessed via Southbank Centre Square on Belvedere Road.

Nutcracker Late Shows

Late Show tickets include exclusive access to Nutcracker Nights from Thursday to Saturday from December onwards when the club dancefloor comes alive with an additional hour of live jazz music after the show. There are also Late Shows on Sunday 3, 10 and 17 December.
