The pubs might still be outdoor only, but the Brunel Museum have got you covered with their Rainbow River virtual pub crawl.
Pub crawlers can travel back to 1780 for a glass of Mother’s Ruin at the The Widow In Masquerade. If they’re lucky they might meet the infamous Female Soldier and hear their tales of genderbending infamy. Or shall we saunter down to The Prospect Of Whitby in the 1800s where flamboyant local queens and slumming gentlemen might join you for a Hot Toddy?
Sacha Coward and Sheldon Goodman, two tour guides and LGBTQ+ historians, will take you on a virtual time traveling bar crawl through some of London’s queerest historic haunts. With the Brunel Museum they have researched seven places along the Thames and East End where LGBTQ+ people past and present have found safe haven. Join us for a virtual tour with a lemon twist, a fabulous evening of cocktails cock tales and herstorical hijinks!
These are just some of the stories to be shared by Sacha and Sheldon the tour guides leading the bar crawl with a difference.
