Opposite Lyceum Theatre, 21 Wellington Street, London, LondonWC2E 7RQ
Saturday 9th February 2019 2PM
You look neat. Talk about a treat! You look dapper from your napper to your feet!
From queer goings on in the wings of the Lyceum, to police entrapment from the turret of the Shaftesbury, discover queer London’s subversive, scandalous and sexy theatre tales. This 90 minute walking tour takes in the coded messages of the music hall songs, fascist dalliances from theatre royalty and the (not so well) hidden lives of the top theatre celebrities of the day. Expect bawdy renditions and awkward positions in all weather conditions.
This tour has been specially commissioned for Equity, to be part of Equity's LGBT History Month celebrations and commemorations, and is led by performers and theatre practitioners Dani Singer and Dan de la Motte, on behalf of Queer Tours of London.
MEET: Opposite the Lyceum Theatre, Sat 9 February, 2pm
