Thursday 28th July: Drag Roast

Can you hear that? It’s the gentle sound of tongues being sharpened and claws filed in readiness for the scene’s comedy roast of Myra Dubois. A spit of biblical proportions is being erected in the RVT to which La DuBois will be tied and turned. Taking turns on this spit of scorn will be Lola Lasagne, Mary Mac, Mrs Moore and Holestar, all peace-keeping skills will be exercised by Ginger Johnson. It’s going to get hilariously dirty! Let the games commence. All ticket proceeds go to Terrence Higgins Trust, produced by QX Magazine and the RVT.

Saturday 30th July, XXL

Imagine a world where a magical place existed. A place in a huge, mythic, strobe light-spattered temple of hedonism by the majestic rushing waters of the river Thames. A place populated by burly men, dressed in all manner of exotic garb, from leather harnesses to mesh vests. Where steam cannons sprayed into the night and Carlsberg sprayed down hairy chests. Imagine if such a place existed. Well guess what…IT DOES! And you can go there every Saturday (and Wednesday). Hooray! It’s XXL!
