A grand night out in Vauxhall – Duckie with The Actionettes

There was no better place to be in Lambeth on Saturday night than the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, where the good club Duckie was hosting another fantastic night of ‘progressive working class entertainment.’

I’m not entirely sure what that means to be honest, but I do know that I’ve always had a heap of fun at this long running club, and Saturday night was no exception, with the Actionettes putting on a show that brought the house down.

Here’s some photos from the night:

The man with the contract!

The good news is that “music hall sensation” The Mrs Mills Experience will be playing Duckie on Saturday Sept 15th, 2012. Don’t miss it!

  1. This makes me feel really young. My cruising carer started with Diana Ross, morphed into Grace Jones, Sylvester with a bit of Frankie Valli thrown in (Manchester was on the edge of the Northern Soul scene). On into the WAGS days with Village People. Lost touch after that – but I well remember the Prince of Wales (now reduced to “Prince”) in its hey day. Raunchy strippers most nights – so raunchy that the Town Hall clerical ladies were clamouring to get in! The Gladiator was particularly appealing. Stripping off a load of heavy Roman centurion armour was no mean feat. No wonder they found all that porn in the Town Hall basement (must find the South London Press clippings about the Town Hall basement!)
    Regarding “working class entertainment” I think this means unpretentious fun stuff not shy of being kitsch.
