Vauxhall Bacchanal - More Nightingales And Fewer Strumpets: Amy Lamé, David Coke
Spanning two centuries, the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens was a site of lavish entertainment and a fashionable meeting place.
In this time travel of the imagination, Amy Lamé interviews David Coke, historian and author of Vauxhall Gardens: A History.
The gardens featured open air music and dancing, hot air balloon ascents, fireworks shows and ornate walkways. Linking the rich past to current artistic endeavours, we go in search of Duckie's roots.
The event is free but ticketed and takes place in the level 5 function room at Royal Festival Hall.
Amy's incredibly varied TV career began as a travel presenter on BBC2's Gaytime TV, trotting across the globe in a plus size polka dot bikini. Amy then went on to develop and present C4's The Staying In Show.
TV appearances include Celebrity Fit Club, Richard and Judy, Loose Women, Daily Politics, The Wright Stuff, and dozens more. Radio credits span R4's Woman's Hour and Five Live to the award-winning BBC London breakfast show she co-presented with Danny Baker.
Amy comfortably moves between the serious and frivolous with intelligence, wit and chutzpah. Her quirky, honest and up-front style has endeared her to television and radio audiences across the nation.
