We’re coming to the Royal Vauxhall Tavern in London for our eighth installment, as part of our UK tour and we couldn’t be happier! Plus as artists in residence at the RVT we’ll be here with dates throughout the year.

Drag – Comedy – Live Art – Music – DJs – Semitic overtones

Doors at 7pm,  show at 8pm -10.30pm, music 10.30- midnight.

Host: Chanukah Lewinsky plus performances from:

That Ray,  Christian Adore, Nana Schewitz, Ruth Nicholson, DJ TamTam plus open mic and more acts to come.

£15 well-waged / £10 waged / £4 unwaged

No one turned away for lack of funds. Please opt for a “well-waged” ticket if you can to help subsidise and maintain fair access to arts programming.

Please get in touch if you have any questions or if you’re interested in performing/ our open mic slots at dexpresents@gmail.com

Expect more theatre, more schmatz and even more houmous. Your nan will love us!

Since 2016 we’ve been schlepping around London with a smorgasbord of drag, comedy, live klezmer, poetry and politics. Hosted by music hall grand dame Chanukah Lewinsky (think Julie Walters on speed), the night began as an open mic at Housmans Bookshop for LGBTI+ Jews to celebrate these two identities which can so often feel at odds. Judaism has a long-standing tradition of camp and queerness and Homos and Houmous is always a raucous family affair; where Bette Midler’s musical stand-up in the bathhouses of New York meets arguments over Shabbat dinner.

With support from Arts Council England, Leeds Inspired, JW3 and Manchester Jewish Museum.

Please bring cash as we’ll be raising funds for Glasgow’s queer, Yiddish café, The Pink Peacock.
