Pub Quiz


See you Ivy House Quizzers May 10 & May 31.


Winners Happy Birthday Sue 3

Peter’s pub quiz on Feb 1st was a great success! A packed room, eight teams, a prize of over £50 and a victory snatched by one point made for an exciting quiz night.  Winners were ‘Happy Birthday Sue’ (pictured), a regular group who won a few weeks ago.  Claire and Lucie are involved in the campaign to save historic gay venue Royal Vauxhall Tavern, where a group has succeeded in getting it recognised as an Outstanding Community Asset and is now trying to raise the £2.5 million needed to buy it.  It’s very much the same process as acquired the Ivy House.  Fingers crossed.  Anyone interested in more information can write to me at  (You can also email this address to get on the quiz mailing list.)
And the name ‘Happy Birthday Sue?’  It was meant to be a nice surprise, but Sue didn’t turn up.  Bitch.
Next Peter quiz is 1st March, which will have a slight female slant, in honour of International Women’s Day on 8th March.

Coming Soon to The Ivy House!

Part of JUNE 24th – JULY 9th

The Southwark LGBT+ Pride Festival is a contribution to Pride in London, the festival of arts and community activity built up around the Pride Parade on Saturday July 8th.  It runs June 24th – July 9th and takes place all over London, in venues large and small.

As part of this, Homo Promos Theatre Company and The Ivy House are proudly contributing to this with a Southwark LGBT Pride Festival mainly based at the Ivy House.  It will consist of theatre, cabaret, films, quizzes and other surprise mystery events!

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 1980s politician 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 1970s and 80s when the Ivy House was in its glory days as a music venue.
