  • London Fringe

Carry On Cottaging

Hosted by Jonny Woo and Dan De La Motte

With guests and readings from Silvertown

Jonny Woo takes us on a glorious jaunt through the public toilets of London with the help of gay historian and general boy about toilets, Dan De La Motte. Cottages as they are known amongst gay men, were the public toilets where gay men used to gather and continue to gather for sexual encounters. At a time when all sexual activity between gay men was illegal cottages were often the only places where gay men could meet sexual partners. Cottages have been the places where many men enjoyed their first sexual encounters and even today many of us cant resist a trip to the public toilets in stations or by roadside for some spontaneous cubicle or urinal erotic activity. Jonny and Dan are joined by Ian (NAME), Stuart Feather and Dan Glass. This event is part of Jonnys research for his play Silvertown set in a gay pub in 1967 in the London Docks and will include readings of extracts from the play.

This event is supported by The Arts Council of England Lottery Fund.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
