Vauxhall Bacchanal - Happy Birthday Royal Vauxhall Tavern: Rupert Smith

Built in 1863, this legendary London pub is 150 years young.

Even before the legalisation of homosexuality, the Royal Vauxhall Tavern was infamous as a gay bar and drag performance venue. How far back does its queer identity and its reputation for drag shows go?

An historical investigation hosted by Rupert Smith with local people, old queens and alehouse experts recalling and reminiscing, plus a free toast to the old gaff.

The event takes place in the Level 5 Function Room at Royal Festival Hall.
