Push The Button: Spice Up Yer Life! 2018
@ The Royal Vauxhall Tavern
|372 Kennington Lane SE11 5HY|
HI! CI! YA! HOLD TIGHT!! Fancy whizzing around London with a bunch of Spicey drag queens in a fleet of double-deckers?🚌🇬🇧 It's the 5th anniversary of our Spice Buses and it's gonna be our BIGGEST night at The Royal Vauxhall Tavern EVER so tickets are on sale... NOW! Please note: Spice Buses start from 7pm at Retro Bar / the clubnight starts 9pm at Royal Vauxhall Tavern. These 2 Become 1 later in the evening but make sure you start at the right place depending on what ticket you have! ☆ SWEETIES ☆ PERFORMANCES ☆ BADGES ☆ SING-A-LONGS ☆ SPICE BUSES ☆ ALL THE HITS ☆ It's the FIFTH ANNIVERSARY of Push The Button's SPICE BUSES and because August wouldn’t be the same without it, they're BACK! On board a vintage double-decker with drag queens at the helm, you’ll recreate the Spice Girls’ iconic Spiceworld journey, screaming through the London streets on your way to a Spice-packed night at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern. As soon as Meatloaf puts pedal to the metal from our central London starting point, there’ll be Spice singalongs and ridiculousness galore as you follow in those Buffalo platform footprints. From squeaking to a halt outside the Royal Albert Hall for a photo opportunity, to soaring over London Bridge, there’s no better way to arrive at the RVT for the gig of your life. Once 2 buses become 1 at the iconic Royal Vauxhall Tavern (who needs the Royal Albert Hall anyway?) it’s time for a Spice Girl and solo Spice Push The Button complete with midnight show and an epic singalong. Bus tickets sell out FAST so don’t miss out - buy yours now and say you’ll be there! SPICE BUS: THE RULES Meatloaf will allow booze on the bus - but no glass. No standing while the Bus is in motion. We mean it. There’ll be two extended dance stops where you can swing it, shake it, move it AND make it - but while the Bus is moving, bums need to be on seats. Fancy dress is STRONGLY encouraged (but though the Spices are a nineties band, this is 2018 so keep it classy, white Mel Bs.) Anyone breaking any of these these rules, or ignoring warnings or requests from the RedRoutemaster / Push The Button team may be ejected from the ride and denied entry to the Royal Vauxhall Tavern. THE JOURNEY Your trip will last approximately two hours depending on traffic, taking in the Royal Albert Hall, Tower Bridge and finally the Royal Vauxhall Tavern. Make sure you pop to the loo before we set off - there’ll only be one loo break on the route and this dress is dry clean ONLY, Melanie. THE MEETING POINT Please register at Retro Bar from 7-8pm. The Spice Bus will leave the Strand at 8.50pm PROMPT - we won’t wait for any Friday night divas. THE CLUB If you miss out on the limited number of Spice Bus tickets, never give up on the good times - there’s plenty more tickets for the club night, which kicks off at 9pm as usual. As well as an excessive amount of Spice Girls and their solo efforts, we’ll be playing the usual hits: from Robyn & Gaga to Aqua & Schlager, PUSH THE BUTTON is a celebration of the last 3 decades of POP! Synths, guitars, keytars, drum-machines, girl bands, boy bands, impossible princesses - it's a glamophonic, electronic, d-d-disco baby! THE DISCLAIMER You won’t be riding the actual Spice Bus from the film (its suspension never recovered from that Tower Bridge leap) and this night is not officially affiliated with the Spice Girls themselves. Not even GEM. It’s a bunch of gays making merry on their way to the Vauxhall gyratory - but that’s good enough for us. Bus tickets sell out FAST so don’t miss out - buy yours now and say you’ll be there! Over 18s only.
