For a few days at StudioRCA you can hear the recording of a performance that took place in the new tunnels that run below Nine Elms as part of the Northern line extension.

In the performance Reader in Contemporary Art at the Royal College of Art, Nina Wakeford, and a local drag king, spoke and sang memories of the Market Tavern (1, Nine Elms Lane), weaving together sounds of the current construction site with memories of the LGBT scene of the 1980s and 1990s.

Using the 5.1 surround sound system, you will be able to listen to the audio documentation of the performance.

The audio art is part of Wakeford’s two-year residency for Art on the Underground, which accompanies the extension of the Northern Line and the development of two new stations at Nine Elms and Battersea.

It’s open to the public daily until Sunday 3 February, 12–6pm.

Also, on Sunday 3rd February, 4–6pm: Nina Wakeford will be in conversation with local drag king, King Frankie Sinatra (book here)

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Sounds really good. Similar to buskers who play music with their instruments and sing or rap at certain tube stations which gets crowded most of the time.
