Fantastic free club night by the Thames

We love Duckie - 'Vauxhall's finest purveyors of progressive working class entertainment' - and their 15th birthday party turned out to be one of the best club nights out of the year.
Admission was free and there was the original Duckie gang of Amy Lamé and the Readers Wives hosting a '21st-century music hall to celebrate 15 years of south London show business.'
Cardboard cut-out cartoonist Robin Whitmore was inviting people to be painted 'as they were when they were 15.'

The hoola-hooping spectacularist Marawa was amazing!
'Dance like it's 1995!'
Jumping around to Pulp's 'Common People.'
"Girls who are boys,
Who like boys to be girls,
Who do boys like they're girls,
Who do girls like they're boys...Always should be someone you really love "
The place was rammed!
The Actionettes and a well-oiled Brixton chum.

Any club that plays Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights" is
just fine in my book!
