Bars Banner

27/07/13: After being caught in a torrential storm on Saturday night in just shorts and a vest and contemplating the tube journey to Walthamstow, we did what any self-respecting gays would do and changed our outfits on a double decker bus - which was static, thankfully. ALWAYS carry a change of clothes, gays!

24/11/12: Apart from being home to a world famous dog track and a mediocre 90s boy band, Walthamstow also plays host to one of the most friendliest and fun boozers on our radar. And we usually end up in a rotten, incoherent heap of drag mess come closing time each time we visit.

Victoria 12/05/12: “Everybody in the house of love, everybody in the house of love”. OK, Maybe the fact I’m a child (well, teenager) of the 90s is the reason I instantly started singing East 17’s entire back catalogue the moment I stepped foot in Walthamstow.

26/11/11: Well I have to admit, when the phone went last week and the husky tones of Leona Van Cartier rasped “Victoria in Walthamstow”, my first response was “Waltham-fuckin-where?”, but jumping on the tube at Oxford Circus I was barely two articles through The Lady and we arrived.
