Love month is finally here!

Love month is finally here... January’s out the way, you’re paying off the credit cards :) and now it's time to look for something to do on Valentine’s on 14 February for that special person, whether you live with them or not. We hope that we can spread the love faster than COVID. As we’re still in lockdown in several countries, including the UK, maybe surprise them with a delivery of some-thing they like. Also, if you live with them, may be a ‘love’ meal followed by... well, we will stop there" :)

On a wider note, we hope to have our pride festivals back this year, and we also hope that we can return to normal living and standing up for what we believe in... "Love is Love" and no-one can take our shine from us. Happy Valentines month to all our readers and businesses. Spread love not Covid...

Love & Pink Respect from Dave & the team, PinkUk

The Royal Vauxhall Tavern

The Royal Vauxhall Tavern
The much loved Royal Vauxhall Tavern is an iconic London (RVT) landmark. In normal times it was an award-winning cabaret, performance and club night destination. The RVT won the accolade of London’s Best Cabaret Venue in 2018 and 2019.

The RVT seems a successful independent company which strives to provide consistently good cabaret and performance shows with both national artists and the best local artists show-casing their work. We can’t wait for the RVT to reopen after the lockdown.
