But be warned: should there be murder in the air, you will be forced to choose a Kingdom: you must pledge your allegiance to the rightful heir to the throne. To which sigil are you truly loyal? Because your loyalty will have some very real consequences to your dinner plans.

This new next immersive dining experience is a parody of the ever so popular TV series Game of Thrones, mixing fabulous food, theatre, comedy and an unhealthy dose of murder all within one night. Whilst enjoying a sumptuous feast within The Vaults, you must also be prepared to tell lies, take risks and trust no one.

Question is will you stay loyal to your beloved Prince Jaffery, or would you rather serve your own ends?

Murder is in the air, so don’t leave the table as Dinner is Coming.

The legend of Tutankhamun captured imaginations globally when, in 1922 his tomb was unearthed by British explorer Howard Carter and financier Lord Carnarvon. An instant worldwide sensation, public fascination surrounding the boy king and the only Ancient Egyptian royal tomb ever found intact has continued for decades, with exhibitions in 1972 and 2007 drawing record crowds of well over one million visitors in London. Those exhibitions contained under 55 items from Tutankhamun’s tomb.

At the conclusion of the tour, the artefacts will go on permanent display at the Grand Egyptian Museum, which is supported by exhibition proceeds. The Grand Egyptian Museum is situated adjacent to the Giza Plateau within 2.5 kilometres of the Giza pyramids. Once completed it will be a world-leading scientific, historical and archaeological study center that will cover approximately 3,000 years of ancient Egyptian history and house more than 100,000 artefacts.

Florence Nightingale London tour

Location: Florence Nightingale Museum
Tickets: For full tour details and tour dates visit https://www.florence-nightingale.co.uk/

Walk back in time through Florence Nightingale’s London.

Florence Nightingale Museum launches new walking tour celebrating the connections ‘the mother of modern nursing’ had in the city of London

This spring the Florence Nightingale Museum is launching a new walking tour, giving members of the public the chance to follow in the footsteps of the mother of modern nursing and discover many of the places connected with the legendary Lady with the Lamp in London.

Statistician, prolific letter-writer and social campaigner, the tour chronicles the back-story of this iconic figure and the London she knew almost 200 years ago. From the house where she spent the last days of her life, to the hospital where she founded her nursing school, the walking tour promises some fascinating insights into the life and work of a remarkable woman etched across the city where she lived.

The two-hour walk begins at the Mayfair home, where Florence lived for a large part of her life and then meanders through Shepherd Market, Piccadilly and St James’s Square, past Horse Guards Parade and Buckingham Palace, and via Westminster and Whitehall, before finishing at the Florence Nightingale Museum. Here visitors can end their tour seeing some of Florence’s personal belongings including her pet owl ‘Athena’ and her lamp from Scutari Hospital, explore the museum and experience the new exhibition on Spanish flu which shines a light on nursing through history’s deadliest pandemic, and has recently been shortlisted as ‘Temporary Exhibition of the Year’ in the 2019 Museum and Heritage Awards.

“This Blue Badge tour is an incredible way for people to really understand Florence Nightingale and the incredible impact she had. From her presentation at court at Buckingham Palace to her humanitarian work during the Crimean War, as well as her role in workhouse reforms, there is so much more to know about Florence and her complex life which is why we wanted to develop this walking tour.”

David Green, Director


Boom-Bang-a-Bang (The Best Eurovision Party in Town)

Dates: 3 May to 9 June
Times: 19.45 (Tues – Sat) and 18.15 on Sundays
Location: Above the Stag Theatre, 72 Albert Embankment London, SE1 7TP
Tickets: https://abovethestag.ticketsolve.com/shows/873604957

Boom Bang-a-Ban is a gloriously bittersweet play, set in Kentish Town on Eurovision night 1995, Lee’s first Eurovision party since his partner Michael died.

Lee is nervous. He and Michael were known for hosting the best Eurovision parties in town. Now Michael is dead (from a brain tumour, contrary to the gossips whispering that it was AIDS), and Lee wants to honour his memory while proving he can manage by himself.

But there’s a rival party in town and most of Lee’s most fabulous friends seem to think the mourning vibe will dampen his soiree! Will anybody come? Will they get on? Will they get on too well? Will there be too many straight people? Get your party on, top up your Buck’s fizz and settle in for the night…

You needn’t be a Eurovision-head to fall for this production – though there are plenty of in-joke references for those recognise the title as Lulu’s 1995 winning tune! Boom-Bang-a-Bang is about the very human rivalry between those gathered to enjoy the competition; getting far below the skin of ostensibly stereotypical gay characters. Lee is joined by a small but far from select gathering of friends. In scouser Lee, his adopted sister Wendy, irrepressible Steph, beautiful rave boy Roy, awkward Norman from the flat upstairs and warring couple Nick and Tanya, writer Jonathan Harvey has weaved an explosively celebratory plot, which astutely reimagines the bounds of conventional sexual  and gender categories. As the atmosphere heats up recriminations and revelations fly and there will be blood, sweat and tears before the voting begins.

Boom-Bang-a-Bang is an intimate get-together of a performance, brimming with hilarity and host to instantly familiar and long memorable characters. High farce and lashings of campiness combine with sensitive insight, in this comedic exploration of LGBT+ subcultures.


Fanny & Stella: The Shocking True Story (a play written by Glenn Chandler with songs by Charles Miller)

Dates: 8 May to 2 June
Times: 19.30 (Tues – Sat) and 18:00 (Sundays) – except Saturday 18th May also 18:00
Location: Above the Stag Theatre, 72 Albert Embankment London, SE1 7TP
Tickets: https://abovethestag.ticketsolve.com/shows/873604957

Roll up, roll up to the Bermondsey Working Men’s Club… in 1870. Come in to the warm, from those uptight, homophobic Victorian streets. Ernest Boulton and Frederick Park – better known and adored by their fans as Fanny and Stella – are here to perform for your delight and delectation, in their finest theatricality, highest camp and sense of play, to tell their own shocking stories, vaudeville style…

Theirs is an outrageous and ever-relevant tale of rising to fame and falling from grace, via a scandalous trial. Real life historical figures (all but unknown to today’s audiences) Ernest Boulton and Frederick Park were arrested at The Strand Theatre in 1870 for cross-dressing, and appeared in court the following morning still in their evening gowns. Trialled for “homosexual offences” the jury acquitted the two trailblazers, deeming the whole episode farcical.

The world premiere of the play that celebrated Fanny and Stella’s epic rebellion in a world that was still shocked to glimpse the ankle of a lady; took place at Above The Stag in its previous, smaller Vauxhall home in 2015. Now with the move to its larger theatre in June last year, the play is being revived once more and audiences will be treated to an in drag, music-hall style rendition of these events, and the years leading up to them, complete with period dress, innuendo aplenty, and themes that feel as pertinent today as in the nineteenth century – all interweaved with original songs by Charles Miller.

Fanny & Stella: The Shocking True Story is the loving creation of playwright Glenn Chandler, best known as the creator and writer of Taggart, one of the world’s longest-running TV detective series, celebrated for its gritty portrayal of the mean streets of Glasgow. With a fascination for real-life crime and court tales, Chandler sees Fanny and Stella as underlooked early activists for gay rights, and wrote the play in tribute to their bravery and spirit of fun.

Highlighting internalised homophobia, parental rejection and the need to champion freedom of expression at any cost, Fanny and Stella’s fight is as touching and inspiring, as it is entertaining. The production is a thoroughly modern look at a rich historical moment, subtly pointing to the differences and similarities found in our own present.

Individually, and as a team, they have years of experience; discovered skills and have handy tips to share with those who want to join them on their kitchen adventures.
