You Lucky London Feminists!

Lots of you will I know already be coming to the Feminism In London conference on 10th October. If not then head over here pronto to find out more and reserve your place.

After the conference (and you don't have to go to the conference to come along) we are holding a fabulous feminist fun-packed cabaret show. It's downstairs at The Comedy Pub on Oxenden Street (between Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square - SW1Y 4EE), doors open at 8pm and show at half eight, though you can arrive before that and buy tickets if there are any left have a drink in the main bar any time.

The line-up is still being tweaked but I have confirmed appearances from Eve Webster (the impressionist who shredded Ann Widdicombe at the recent Abortion Rights fundraiser) and fabulous headliners Chambers and Nettleton (pictured above).

[Update: added to the line-up: the British Bette Midler... Abi Roberts!]

[Update number two: also added to the line-up: amazing magician Katherine Rhodes!]

Tickets are £10 full price and £5 concessions. I'm not going to make any rule on who is and isn't a concession so if you can afford it, it is a fundraiser, please buy the full priced ticket but if money's an issue get a concession one and don't miss out on the fun.

Other info: The pub is over-18s only (sorry) and the venue is down a single flight of stairs. We will do whatever we can to help with accessibility so give me a shout if you need advice on that. Show will finish about 11pm and afterwards there'll be a DJ (over whom I have no control but it's usually cheery and dancy) and the venue will open up to the public until 2am.

You can buy tickets using the button below.


(Oh and by the way once you pay it will tell you to contact David at Soho Comedy Club for your ticket, but this is not necessary, I will just have a list including your name and email address on the door).

Just a small suggestion for next year. I feel like an idiot now, having read the post which clearly says the fundraiser was downstairs, but I couldn't find it. I went upstairs but realised it wasn't feminist comedy.
I know I'm probably stupid - but I didn't remember in detail a blog post I'd read several days before, and hadn't re-read, as I knew of the Comedy Pub.
I went straight into the pub, assuming only the toilets were downstairs, and immediately saw that the Comedy Club was upstairs so went there.
Could you possibly mention at Feminism in London that the evening is in the basement, and maybe put up some signs?
I was looking forward to it.

Oh what a shame - if you had only said the word "feminist" or "cabaret" or "fundraiser" to any of the organisers either at the door or upstairs - you would have bee directed downstairs. Really sorry you missed out. I realised at the conference that I should have brought maps - I ended up drawing them for several people - and from your comment I will in future put on those maps "DOWNSTAIRS".

Thanks. That would be a good idea.

Yes, I probably should have said that I was after the feminist fundraiser, but had no idea there was more than one event that night...!

But never mind. We live and learn.
