The Royal Vauxhall Tavern have a weekend of parties over London / Euro gay pride 6-9 July. Pride Eurofest on Friday and we have flyers for discount entry click here, Duckie on Saturday and SLAGS / Chill-out Pride Special. Click the headline for more info and T&C. London gay club Royal Vauxhall Tavern is at 372 Kennington Lane, Vauxhall.
FRIDAY 6th JULY
It’s the Summer of Love! At Eurofest we shamelessly celebrate europop all night long, including many tracks from European pop’s spiritual core, the Eurovision Song Contest. DJ Dave Simmons, the UK’s leading Eurovision DJ, and DJ Don Grant bring their 20 years’ experience of playing all things European. Even if you don’t know your ABBA from your Alphabeat, you’ll still feel the rhythm of the night in the vibrant Eurofest atmosphere. And we promise, no R&B!!
AND of course it’s all for charity… With Eurofest taking place as London hosts WorldPride weekend, all proceeds from this event will be donated to Pride London – a volunteer-run charity which relies on your support to run the annual Pride Parade and free entertainment.
Our LIVE ACT this event, jetting in from Stockholm for her first ever UK performance, will be the schlager-tastic SHIRLEY CLAMP. Shirley has had four Top 10 hits in her native Sweden including a Number 1, and three Top 10 albums. Shirley has also been a regular favourite competitor in Melodifestivalen, Sweden’s internationally acclaimed song contest and most-watched TV programme.
What will we play? See www.eurofest.org.uk for more info

The day kicks off at 2pm with SIMON LE VANS (Gaydar Radio) playing current house tunes. Taking to the stage at 5.30pm is our resident superstar cabaret THE D. E. EXPERIENCE.
The CHILL-OUT then takes over at 7pm with DJ ANDY ALMIGHTY (7th Heaven/Club Junkies) playing uplifting commercial house, party anthems and mixes you won’t hear anywhere else. The disco rocks through ‘til midnight with DJ SEAN SIRRS (Love Muscle) at 9.30pm, taking it tougher ‘til close.
End your weekend on a fantastic high. Get to the RVT this (and every) Sunday for the biggest party in town.
Useful tip! Sundays at the RVT can be extremely busy. To ensure you do get in pre-show, it is wise to arrive well before 4pm.
