The Bar Wotever Tour

As you are aware Bar Wotever set out on tour at the beginning of February and finished just last week on the 3rd March. We visited Bristol, Brighton, Exeter, and Edinburgh and in each city we did at least two nights of sold out shows!

Our first stop was at the Wardrobe Theatre in Bristol! We had incredible performances from our regular performers at Bar Wotever from Travis Alabanza, and Ebony Rose Dark, and we had three Bristol based performers take to the stage (Dis Charge, Isadora Vibes, Oliver Assetts, and Annette Curtain). We were also able to take along our stage manager Lysander and our sound techy Harry… Hooray!

Then we travelled to The MarlboroughBrighton. Where Adam All, Apple Derrieres, Sherika Sherard, and FKA took to the stage and wowed the audience at The Marlborough Pub and Theatre. This night was full to the brim of drag, live music, and love!

Next up was Exeter. After two performers and our stage manager missed their train from London… we all stayed as cool as cucumbers and waited for information that they were indeed on their way, in true “The Show Must Go On” style! Our new home away from home was at the Bike Shed Theatre, a very cute and warm space. Here we did one night of performance from Travis Alabanza, Billie Butch, and Benjamin Butch – with an appearance from Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry! Then, on the second evening we had a ‘Drag Performance Corner’ where Billie and Benjamin Butch performed in the bar area of the venue and Ingo DJ’ed the night away!

Our final stop of the tour was all the way in Edinburgh, where we teamed up with Dive Collective, to put on two evenings of fabulous shows. On both nights we witnessed drag, politics, comedy, and cabaret. All of which were performed at The Voodoo Rooms.

At every stop of the tour we witnessed some INCREDIBLE performances during the Open Mic slots that we offered… these were slots given to local performers who wanted/needed a place to showcase their work. These open mic performances showed us that there are so many performers out there who need their voices to be heard and to be listened to by a willing and loving audience. It was also so lovely to see our wonderful crew and performers pull together when we are away from our home at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern.

At the end of every show and at every city we visited on our tour, we had so many different audience members approach the crew and performers to thank us for bringing Bar Wotever to them. It was so heartwarming to see and feel the love that they felt towards us. This is why it is so incredibly important that we keep doing what we are doing, so we can reach out to more and more people around the country and then…the world! We have been asked back to Bristol, Brighton and Exeter…. Keep your eyes peeled for announcements of when will be on the move again!

We have ants in our pants!

Bar Wotever at The Wardrobe Theatre

poster_2017_smallBar Wotever in Bristol!

Bar Wotever is touring again this year and Bristol will be our first stop. We will be bringing some of our favourite performers, our community vibe, and our loving atmosphere to the Wardrobe Theatre on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd February 2017.

Bar Wotever is a weekly queer cabaret night that is held at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern every Tuesday evening. It is a platform for performers to showcase their work to a loving audience and a place for people to feel loved and welcome. It is important that we take our loving environment and place it around the UK so everyone has the chance to feel welcome in a queer space. By offering open mic slots to the local community, Bar Wotever on Tour will reach out to people around the UK who may want to perform on a stage but don’t necessarily have the platform to do so.

In each city we visit, we will create a space that includes everyone (no discrimination tolerated). There will be a show presented by regular performance artist from Wotever World, and a call for open mic slots for people who wish to perform who live locally.

Joining us in Bristol we have:

Travis Alabanza, Ebony Rose Dark, Discharge, Tom Marshman, Oliver Assets & Isadora Vibes plus a lot of open mic acts we can not wait to work with!

 

Come and see us! Three Nights, Three Different shows!
