DOWN THE SHAFT WITH TRICITY VOGUE
SATURDAY 22ND APRIL
Join us for an exceptionally special start to the spring season. We couldn’t wait to get going but the weather’s a bit unpredictable. So we’re going for a hybrid affair with sell-out cabaret star Tricity Vogue.
Upstairs in the roof garden you will be treated to the usual campfire shenanigans with complimentary toasted marshmallows, deluxe rum hot toddy stand, giant flares, hurricane lamps and the stirrings on spring. But we also invite you to descend the brand new grand staircase of Brunel’s underground Grand Entrance Hall, described as one of the most exciting new performance spaces and cultural attractions in London. It is here that you will be treated to an evening of cabaret, cocktails and candlelight.
Ukulele-wielding, cross-dressing “master showgirl” Tricity Vogue will entertain you with cheeky original cabaret show tunes, drinking songs, plenty of costume changes and an opportunity for a singalong. And food by the extraordinarily talented Despina Siahuli, famed Greek chef and founder of PAN.
“Tricity Vogue and her uke… recipe for one of the finest shows you’ll
see. It’s cabaret to run down side-streets for – just get there early.”

More about the Midnight Apothecary
Queen of artfully-designed, plant-powered cocktails……some of the most inspired cocktails in London“. Kara Rosen, Founder, Plenish Cleanse.
“Welcome to the hottest pop-up cocktail bar in town.” Pattie Barron, Evening Standard
“Midnight Apothecary….already a London institution.” Victoria Summerley, Editor, Independent on Sunday
“Being in a garden at midnight with campfire and bar has never been so magical.” Richard Reynolds, guerilla gardener, author and founder of guerillagardening.org
The creator of the garden is our favourite Cocktail Gardener, aka Lottie Muir. By day she is the gardener who transformed the garden above Brunel’s famous Thames Tunnel from scrubby wasteland into a magical potager garden teeming with vegetables and flowers. But on special Saturday nights she sheds her gardening gloves and dons her apron to become The Cocktail Gardener, wending her way from flowerbed to bar to rustle up gorgeous cocktails infused and garnished with ingredients from the garden or foraged locally for Midnight Apothecary.
Previous incarnations include woodland martinis, Rhubarbra Streisands, hedgerow sours and the Chelsea Fringe Collins. She only uses premium alcohol, where possible sourced locally, including the fantastic Old Tom gin from Jensen and Hiver Honey beer, both from Bermondsey.
