      • First and second Sunday of the month: alternating bands. Watch this space!
      • Doolally Tap play every third Sunday of the month and always wow audiences with their uniquely energetic brand of vintage jazz. Originally hatched in a dark corner of south-east London, the band’s spiritual home is 1920s New Orleans. Drawing inspiration from Crescent City musicians like King Oliver, Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet, as well as the “second line” bands that they came out of, Doolally Tap’s music evokes the true spirit and energy of the prohibition era.
      • The Jeff Williams Swamp Lounge play every fourth Sunday of the month. Trombonist and vocalist, he utilises a fine trio of piano, bass & drums to help bring colour to a vast repertoire of tunes, which they deliver with great musical prowess.

Pull The Other One is an extraordinary evening with acts bizarre, humorous and delightful. Most comedy shows nowadays are just a string of stand-ups with occasionally, an odd act thrown in.

Vivienne and Martin Soan’s monthly Pull The Other One club at the Ivy House is old-style variety mingled with comic performance art and never short of the unexpected and bizarre. It’s no surprise that Pull The Other One attracts a varied audience including artists, musicians and celebrities in search of an inspirational night out themselves.

“I will be coming back here as much as I can” – Omid Djaili

“Performing at this club was the 17th highlight of my life” – Arthur Smith

Laurel Swift Showcase:Traveling with Thomas

Travelling with Thomas is the beginning of a new folk musical, which explores and expands on the traditional folk song and legend Thomas the Rhymer.

The musical follows Thomas as he is forced to travel to Fairyland, partly through his own arrogance, then both helped and hindered in finding a safe way home at a price.  It is a tale of love, fairness, truth and time.

Meet Laurel Swift and Lizzie Watts at the start of their creative process for an interactive showcase of brand new music and artwork.

See where they’ve got so far, simply come to drink it all in, or choose to get involved by responding to their work and even contributing your own stories.

Join Thomas, Laurel and Lizzie at the first of three showcases for a unique behind the scenes experience in the development stages of this exciting new musical.

With musicians:
Paul Sartin – Fiddle/Oboe
Deb Chalmers – Fiddle/Viola
Dave Delarre – Guitar
Sarah Moody – Cello

Doors @ 8pm

Thursday 25th May:

Captain Swing and the Blacksmith




The new novel by Beatrice Parvin, praised for the “musicality and lyricism of its language” is rapturously showcased with songs and readings on the Ivyhouse Stage.

‘Captain Swing and the Blacksmith’ a riotous tale of passion and tragedy is brought to life by the spellbinding voice of award-winning folk singer, Emmie Ward, Gili Orbach, accordion maestro Pete Watson, and the fiddle wizardry of Frank Biddulph. Traditional favourites and contemporary folk tunes all topped and tailed by the silky singer-songwriter Rebecca Hollweg.

June & July

June 24th – July 9th : Southwark LGBT Pride Festival


LGBT Pride is coming!  The Parade is in Central London on Saturday July 9th, and will be ENORMOUS.  (Seehttp://prideinlondon.org/events/2017/07/08/parade)  As part of this, Pride in London is running, and encouraging others to run, community and arts events large and small across London June 24th to July 9th, under the umbrella Pride in London.

Homo Promos Theatre Company and the Ivy House are contributing to this with a Southwark LGBT Pride Festival mainly based at the Ivy House, but with other events taking place elsewhere.  It will consist of theatre, cabaret, films, quizzes and other events, some of which are still being planned.

Highlights so far:  A London-wide Quiz Contest called the Capital Quiz; the premiere of a classic gay film long thought lost, called ‘David is Homosexual’, made in Lewisham in 1976; pioneering LGBT Rights/Equalities campaigner and 1980spolitician Linda Bellos in conversation; a community play about the last 2 men hanged for sodomy in Britain, performed outside the house where they were arrested; and a very special Special Guest whose very name will recall the days of the 1970sand 80s when the Ivy House was in its glory days as a music venue.
