The Trafalgar Partnerships
THE DUCK HOUSE
We are delighted to partner with THE DUCK HOUSE at The Vaudeville Theatre (December 10 – March 29, 2014). THE DUCK HOUSE is an outrageous new laugh out loud comedy set in a world of dodgy receipts, dodgier deceit, and pure Parliamentary panic.
Ben Miller (BBC1’s Death in Paradise and The Armstrong and Miller Show) as the MP who’s got it all – and has claimed for most of it – leads an all-star West End cast of Olivier award-winning National Theatre actress Nancy Carroll, Debbie Chazen, James Musgrave, Simon Shepherd and Diana Vickers. Tony & Olivier award-winning Terry Johnson (Hysteria, End of the Rainbow) directs this hilarious satire from two writers who’ve been making fun of politicians for decades: Dan Patterson (BBC2’s Mock the Week) and Colin Swash (BBC1’s Have I Got News For You and Private Eye).

‘a ribald farce… genuinely hilarious’
The Telegraph Charles Spencer
The Trafalgar Hotel is proud to announce their collaboration with Stylist Magazine to celebrate the arrival of London Fashion Week and Stylist’s bi-annual Fashion Issue by creating a limited edition Stylist LFW cocktail available from 14-18 February. Exclusively available at The Trafalgar’s Rockwell Bar and designed by Bar Manager David Carvalho, this fabulously chic cocktail is a refreshing mix of vodka, honey, crème de violette, lychee, agave syrup and fresh lemon. The hotel will also host a special installation in the Rockwell Bar windows featuring the S/S 2014 fashion special covers.
Yes, Prime Minister
We are delighted to partner with Yes Prime Minister at The Trafalgar Studios. Following two smash hit West End runs and a successful nationwide campaign trail, the award-winning Yes, Prime Minister thrusts the much-loved characters Sir Humphrey Appleby and Jim Hacker into the chaos of 21st century coalition politics. With the threat of financial meltdown just hours away, and the only hope of rescue resting on a morally dubious deal with the Foreign Minister of Kumranistan, the stage is set for a riotous comedy of sex, scandal and scheming.

‘As sharp and blissfully funny as ever’
‘A delightful stream of one-liners’
Cancer Research UK
We are pleased to be working in partnership with Cancer Research UK for a second year and fundraising for their lifesaving research into Childhood Cancers.
Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research. Their groundbreaking work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer has seen survival rates double in the last 40 years. Last year Cancer Research UK spent nearly £9 million on research into children’s cancer. This money supports the charities’ doctors and scientists who are finding out what causes cancer in children and searching for better ways to diagnose and treat the disease. Research carried out by the charity has helped to transform survival rates for children with cancer. In the 1960s, around a quarter of children with cancer survived. Today, three quarters survive and Cancer Research UK is at the heart of this huge progress.
Cancer Research UK is funded entirely by the public, which is why partnership’s like ours are so crucial in helping in the fight to beat cancer. We were delighted to take part in Race for Life in 2011 and 2012 – a women only 5K run and also Shine London in 2011 and 2012 – a night-time walking marathon.

The Trafalgar Hotel is the official hotel partner for WHAT THE BUTLER SAW, Joe Orton’s legendary 1967 comedy playing at the Vaudeville Theatre this spring. Starring Omid Djalili, Tim McInnerny and Samantha Bond, What the Butler Saw is an insanely funny, full-throttle tour de farce directed by Sean Foley. One-liners and outrageous twists collide, as the characters loose the plot, their wits, and their clothes. You’d be mad to miss it. For more information visit, www.whatthebutlersawtheplay.com
