Madonna: 30 years of Like a Prayer
Thursday 4 April, 8pm – 2am
For many of us Like a Prayer is Madonna’s masterpiece, a true classic pop album that confirmed her place as an icon of the modern age. This special party is a celebration of the album for its 30th anniversary, complete with a full playback of the whole album. Plus there will be performances by Margo Marshall and her dancers and prizes for the best Madonna fancy dress.
Stephanie’s Child followed by LipSinkers
Friday 5 April, 7pm to 4am
It’s Friday and there are two amazing events at The RVT, kicking off early at 7pm with the outstanding Stephanie’s Child. Comprised of NYC queer nightlife staples Jan Sport, Lagoona Bloo, and Rosé, this drag vocal supergroup have become famous the world over working with Jessie J, Bianca Del Rio and many more. This show will mix their outrageous sense of humour with extraordinary vocals and is a must for any fans of US drag. Following that it’s the UK’s very own LipSinkers bringing their own deranged cabaret and clubbing fun to their spiritual home until 4am.

Honestly is it really any kind of weekend if you haven’t been to the all powerful Duckie at The RVT?
