If you could die tomorrow, wouldn't you live today as if it were your last?


1942. A smoky, underground cabaret club opens in war-torn London. A saucy new singer is thrust in to the spotlight. Two men struggle to love out of the shadows.

A world where aristocrats slum it with black market spivs, songwriters take to the

streets, and showgirls fight to change the world. When secrets are revealed, the only

resistance is to stand up and be counted.


A deeply touching and raucously funny tale of prejudice, passion and debauchery during the dark days of World War Two. Miss Nightingale brings the scandals, the

satire, and the spunky spirit of the Forties sensationally to life.


After five triumphant UK tours and voted one of The Guardian's Top 50 Shows of 2016, you can finally enjoy the hit show at The Vaults.


Come fly with us...


You'll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll cheer for more!
