The DE at the RVT
Prepare to gird your loins this weekend (15 Apr) when the one and only DE Experience will be back where she belongs at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern for Sunday Social.

Ruthless – The Musical is the malicious and delicious musical about a talented young girl and the ruthless woman around her.

Get your tickets at ruthlessthemusical.com.
Party hard in Portsmouth

If the thought of being stuck in the middle of a scrum of beefy bears in tight white sorts gets you all moist then join the queue and we’ll see you at Pulse this Saturday (14 Apr) for XXL Rugby. It will be sweaty bloke central and the music will be on the sexy side too as Paul Morrell and Alex Logan rock the main room while Joe Egg and David Robson mix up the pop, R&B and some classics in the Fur Lounge.
Saturdays at Halfways
Saturdays at Halfway II Heaven are always a tad bonkers and this weekend (14 Apr) we suspect will be no different.

The night reaches a dizzy – and we do mean dizzy – climax at 10pm when The Vixens join DJ Justin Swift for some girl band hotness.
