The Red Ribbon Cabaret
Run by Wandsworth Oasis, who we work with often, the Red Ribbon Cabaret is a yearly event of music, comedy and cabaret to raise money for HIV and AIDS charities.
In 2016, we sponsored this fantastic event and enjoyed a great night and helped make a difference within our community.
The 2016 Red Ribbon Cabaret
The hugely popular DE EXPERIENCE topped the bill at the2016 Red Ribbon Cabaret, a starstudded event for World AIDS Day raising money for south London HIV charity Wandsworth Oasis.
The concert raised funds for Wandsworth Oasis – a charity selling donated items across their seven shops to raise money for those living with HIV. So far, they’ve been able to give more than £350,000 in grants to other charities working with people living with HIV or undertaking prevention work.

Also, the legendary Jonathan Hellyer performed as alter ego his Dame Edna Everidge with his wicked tongue and superb singing voice.
Paul Ross said, “It was a great night, and it was incredible to see Tight Fit on stage again. They were one of my favourite bands from the 1980’s.”

Direct from the Two Brewers stage, superstar drag sensation Mrs Moore gave a superb performance and just in from her U.S. tour, vocalist Emma King delivered her blend of retro soul, roots, blues and pop-tastic hits.
Many other acts and entertainment added to the bill, such as:
