ESB 5 with words AWAP

'We have been producing cabaret shows for over 25 years. At their heart has been an open space in which we can experiment, test and play and which in recent years we have called The English Cabaret Hour.'

During our rehearsal and performances in 2015 the fortnightly ECvlog gathered together backstage pics and clips. You can watch them below.
