The talk by Polari Mission that we had planned to launch LGBT History Month with – and that we sadly had to cancel because of problems with the weather and railways – has now been rescheduled.

Saturday 31 May, 2.30pm-3.30pm
Roll for the Soul Café,   Quay St,   Bristol, BS1 2JL

So we are delighted that Jez Dolan, one of the dolly omipalones from Polari Mission will be giving a whirlwind illustrated history of the secret gay language of gay men. Polari is perhaps best known from Kenneth Williams and Hugh Paddick’s portray of Julian and Sandy in Round the Horne and is one of the world’s most endangered languages, a bold yet secretive part of gay history. Join them a bona bijou troll through the fantabulosa history of the language. It’ll be bona to vada your dolly old eeks on Saturday 31 May, 2.30pm-3.30pm,  upstairs at Roll for the Soul Café, Unit 2, St Lawrence House, Quay St, Bristol, BS1 2JL.

Reserve your ticket on Eventbrite.
