Treat yourself at the George and Dragon
We love the George and Dragon in Greenwich; it’s an oasis of cabaret excellence in the Royal Borough watched over by the original Mother of Dragons, aka The Duchess. She only books the very best acts and this weekend is no exception with the brilliant soul duo Heart & Soul on Friday (15 Jun) and Miss Terry Tour on Saturday. And as if that wasn’t enough, you can bring your weekend to a gorgeous climax on Sunday with three top acts, Mary Mac, Tony Sinclair and Miss Jason. Plus there’s always great drinks offers if you get there early.
