Frid 20 Nov Camden Cabaret SPECIAL NIGHT OF CAMP VARITY
CAMDEN CABARET with Loud & Queerly PRESENTS ‘NOT A NIGHT AT THE BLACK CAP’ Camden Cabaret are pleased to hand over the night to our Loud & Queerly friends to celebrate the historically important and iconic LGBTQ+ pub and performance venue, The Black Cap. For over five years the #WeAreTheBlackCap campaign has fought the Cap’s owners and property developers to save and restore the pub as the queen of Camden High Street, and as the ‘Palladium of Drag’ for another 300+ years. #LoudandQueerly, the LGBTQ+ performance collective, have dragged together a showcase of cabaret and verity to celebrate The Black Cap and the campaign to save and restore the pub to its rightful place. The night will also raise funds for the #WeAreTheBlackCap campaign fighting fund. So buy a ticket and join in the fun and games.
