Myra and Frankie at The RVT
As always there’s a smorgasbord of treats on offer at The Royal Vauxhall Tavern including the Roast of Mrs Moore on Thursday (11 Jul) which promises to be hilarious and is raising money for THT.
Friday night the mega popular venue has two amazing shows, starting early with multi media star Myra DuBois and her Edinburgh R.I.Preview, (we see what she did there) of her new show, Dead Funny, a sardonic side-eyed look at death and at the theatre of grief starting at 8pm. That’s followed by the return of Frankie Goes to Vauxhall, the 80s synth-pop themed night with DJ Mike Kelly and guests.
Saturday it’s the one and only Duckie and on Sunday the transatlantic dame, Charlie Hides will be blowing out the candles on her birthday cake at Sunday Social with DJs Simon Le Vans and Phill Marriott. Tickets and info from vauxhalltavern.com
