The George & Dragon are celebrating 25 years as an LGBT+ safe space on Saturday, 2 September. It’s hard to believe that with so many LGBT+ spaces closing, this community venue on the edge of a park is holding back the tide of time and is still as popular as ever. But that’s the power of community. The George and Dragon holds our community close to its heart and has done so for 25 years.

The George & Dragon 25th Anniversary party will be a fantastic night with two iconic acts, Angie Brown and Allan Jay, on stage from 9 pm. 

Angie Brown is a South Londoner from Brixton. She has sung on several hit singles. She co-wrote and performed the single Disco Heaven with Holly Johnson of Frankie Goes to Hollywood and has also performed vocals on the album Don’t Mind If I Do by Culture Club. Brown has also performed backing vocals for numerous superstars, including Grace Jones, The Rolling Stones, Kate Bush, Happy Mondays and Beverley Night. You’re in for a treat! 

Also appearing on stage will be Allan Jay, a multi-award-winning Scottish recording artist known within the LGBTQ+ Dance Music Scene. He has released successful singles and gained chart success across various charts, including the top 10 on Itunes, Best Dance Albums Chart, Eurodance and the LGBT+ Music chart. One of his biggest successes, “Work Ya Love”, charted across many charts reaching no three on the German Dance Chart.

George & Dragon posted on their Facebook, “There are those who try to destroy us and our spaces; they will not win! Here’s to the next 25 years …. Going nowhere.”
