What Is Bar WOTEVER?

Bar WOTEVER is proud to work in conjunction with some of the top Queer and LGBT performers from London, the rest of the UK and, indeed, from around the globe. While some of the resident performers are well known to those who regularly come to the shows, RVT also encourage novice performers and newcomers to the scene to take to the stage, joining the familiar faces who tread the boards time and again.

As well as weekly Tuesday night shows, they also run a number of special events to celebrate occasions throughout the calendar, including, most recently a spectacular collaboration for International Women’s Day which was held in Balham.
