Above the Stag Theatre 

The Bank Holiday doesn’t have to be all about booze, boys, cabaret and clubs… although that’s all fun. Why not treat yourself to a trip to the theatre, specifically the UK’s only full time LGBT+ theatre, Above The Stag in Vauxhall. Right now you can see Closer To Heaven the musical by the Pet Shop Boys and Jonathan Harvey or Making Porn, a hilarious look at the gay porn industry by Ronnie Larsen. Tickets for both at abovethestag,com

Sweatbox Bank Holiday Monday

If you’ve been out most of the long weekend at bars and clubs and just generally being fabulous, then why not head to Sweatbox on Bank Holiday Monday for some ‘relaxation’. If you haven’t been since the makeover then we 100% recommend it and as it’s a Monday, guys under 25 get in for free with ID. Wahoo!
