Duckie is a South-London club night normally held weekly at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern which describes itself as an “arts charity, homo-social honky-tonk and performance club for extraordinary populations”. It was co-founded 21 years ago by London’s newly appointed Night Czar, Amy Lamé, who oversees the city’s night life.
On December 3, Duckie will be celebrating its 21st birthday at the Electric Brixton with the theme ‘Las Vegas in Lambeth: Suits and Showgirls’.
Lamé will be hosting the night and residents Readers Wifes, Tap Cats, MisSa Blue, Access All Areas, The Lipsinkers, Mazury and Black Elvis are also on the bill.
"What do you get if you cross ... 25 Polish Folk Dancers, 15 Tap Dancers aged 60 Plus, 7 Subversive Neurodivergent Creatives with Learning Disabilities, 6 Drag Queens, Two Readers Wifes, a Fire-Breathing Ingénue, a Chubby American Glamourpuss in Spectacles, a Gambling Den, a Legendary Brixton Dance Hall that used to House The Daisy Chain, a Scary Mary Door Whore, One Thousand Five Hundred Middle Aged Lesbos and Benders from South London, Black Elvis and a Game of Pontoon...?"
