We catch up with the Queen of Clapham, Vicki at The Bridge

We might still have our brollies at the ready, but our fabulous British summer has well and truly arrived over on Voltaire Road, Clapham. We decided to catch up with the “Queen of Clapham” Vicki over at The Bridge about bringing the sunshine to South London this Summer!

Hey Vicki, how’s summer going at The Bridge so far?
Summer is summering, and it’s only just begun! We have the best sun-trap on Voltaire Road in Clapham North and a cosy bar with air conditioning indoors, so we’ve really got the best of both worlds.
What big events coming up over the next few months? 
We run a weekly comedy drag show called ‘Two for Tea’ every Friday night. It’s hosted by our resident queen, the incomparable Beary Poppins, who actually started her drag career here three years ago. She invites a drag/cabaret star to join her every week for a VERY STRONG cup of tea and a big queer singalong. It’s like a big camp house party every Friday night.

I’m actually the guest for my birthday this Friday 12 July – Vicki, Queen of Clapham edition – which will be utter carnage. We have some fab DJs on Saturdays, too – Dom Topics, DJ Stew and our new DJ Emmet are all incredible.
Ooo, and one of our regular queens is Ula Lah; she’ll be here off and on throughout the summer – stopping traffic, climbing on benches, you name it. She’s a lip-syncing queen like no other. Amazing House of gays hosted by Benji Every other Sunday. It’s not just a quiz, and you can win £75 bar tabs
What’s your favourite part of being in charge?
My amazing and beautiful team, without a doubt – shout out to Nathan, Calem, Chris, Teddy, Owen and Leo. We’ve all worked hard to bring The Bridge back to what it once was; a queer local with real heart.
If there was one song that could sum up The Bridge, what would it be?
I would have to choose Celine Dion’s It’s All Coming Back To Me Now. This gaff is my past present and future, and we’re all one big family.
