ROYAL VAUXHALL

The story of the wildest night in the history of the capital’s most iconic gay venue!

It’s 1988 and queer London is partying hard under the spectre of AIDS, the scrutiny of the press and the shadow of Clause 28.

When Princess Diana dreams of a wild night out away from the long lenses of the paparazzi and the ruthless Royals at the Palace, best buddies Freddie Mercury and Kenny Everett know there is only one place to take her: the Royal Vauxhall Tavern.

The only trouble is: how the hell are they going to get one of the most famous faces in the world through the door without blowing her cover?

Their night at the Tavern is the stuff of legend. Desmond O’Connor’s irreverent yet insightful new musical reveals that what they learnt about themselves and each other would shock and propel them through the final years of their tragically shortened lives.

After a triumphant run on the Edinburgh Fringe, Royal Vauxhall returns for four nights only to the RVT; the actual location for one of the dos improbable and outlandish events of the decade.
