The Royal Vauxhall Tavern
372 Kennington Lane, SE11 5HY London, United Kingdom
NYC's cult horror raconteur, Dandy Darkly, returns to Bar Wotever and the Royal Vauxhall Tavern for the exclusive London preview of his fifth hysteric, late-night frolic headed to the Edinburgh Fringe! Join Dandy onboard the infamous Gaybird Steamer for the queerest ride of your life! African myth, American industry and Deep South identity are skewered and celebrated alongside a Dixieland funeral parade of richly imagined characters from the proudly peculiar mind of this fiercely fringe performer.
Dandy Darkly follows a beautiful tradition of Southern American storytellers, Tennessee Williams and Truman Capote to name but a few, and regales his surprisingly poignant tales alongside a bespoke soundtrack peppered with eclectic effects to create a truly immersive, theatrical experience. Anticipate a heavy dash of Southern hospitality with a side of fabulous costumery that will transport you to another land and leave you clamoring for more.
Ladies and gentlemen and every beautiful being born anyone in-between, All Aboard!
Written and performed by Dandy Darkly.
Directed by Ian Bjorklund.
Featuring original music composed and performed by Adam Tendler, Bryce Edwards, Jeffrey Underhill, Carlos Espinosa and Rachel Blumberg.

Tuesdays at RVT
We work with some of the best LGBT & Queer Performers in London, UK and the World, plus encourage newcomers and beginners with great attitude and things to say. We also champion a big group of Residential Royal Vauxhall Tavern. In 2017 we celebrate our Twelfth Year of creating space for Queer Art and Culture!
— Accessibility Info
The RVT has flat across and we can accommodate wheelchairs on the lower tables with uninterrupted sight lines to the stage. We endure no strobes and minimise flashing lights at the RVT.
There is no wheelchair access to the stage. There are 4 steps at the front and four into the dressing room. There are toilet cubicles that can be accessed without steps, however there are no wheelchair accessible toilets at the venue. Nearest one is by Vauxhall bus station.
We are working to improve accessibility to all our events. If you are able to assist in ensuring all of our diverse audience is accommodated please contact [email protected]
