Reading about the best of London is one thing.

Actually getting out there to experience it in the flesh, however, can require something sufficiently different – and weirdly special – to grab your attention.

Fortunately “different, weird and special” is exactly what you’ll find on offer during the last two weeks of July, as the Boom Boom Club – London’s foremost purveyors of the deliciously twisted –  takes up  residence within the mysterious Old Vic Tunnels, hidden away in the vaults behind Waterloo.

If the line up is anything to go by, you should expect a particular focus on the weird.

Count Adriano Fettucini will be there, performing his signature City Gent Striptease. On a unicycle.  Nestled amongst a variety of other entertaining oddities  are the burlesque and fetish tribal fusion belly dancer Leah Debrincat; Raymond and Mr Timpkins; the impeccably exotic hula-hooper-extraordinaire Yulia Pikhtina and two Scots called, erm, Barry and Stuart.

With two consecutive three day runs planned (Thursday 21st July – Saturday 23rd, and Thursday 28th July – Saturday 30th), the shows will start at 8pm and last until midnight.  Unless you book in for a Saturday, in which case additional entertainment will be laid on to keep the party going until 3am.

Very unique, very weird and very entertaining.
