After 16 months of closure with only a short period of very restricted opening in late 2020, The Eagle returns to Vauxhall’s vibrant LGBTQI+ scene with some well known favourites and some exciting new cultural events and creative productions.
This has partly been made possible with some invaluable funding from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and Arts Council England’s Culture Recovery Fund (CRF), without which the future of one of London’s few remaining independent Queer safe spaces was in jeopardy.
To resume our 17 year history and sustain The Eagle for the future, the venue is evolving into a multi-purpose creative hub presenting theatre, comedy, music, film, art and entertainment by a diverse and creative community for a diverse and creative community.
EAGLE CREATES is our way of giving back to all kinds of artists and performers whose lives and work have been as severely affected by the Covid pandemic as has our business. We have ring fenced part of our CRF award to offer packages of technical and financial support, as well as our venue, to suitable creative individuals and organisations to enable them to create and present their work at The Eagle.
You may be a theatre company with a ready production, a band looking for gigs, a cabaret artiste who would seize the opportunity to perform at our popular VOHO Revue Show nights, or an artist looking for exhibition space. We’re open to all suggestions whether traditional or uniquely different; we want to offer cultural experiences to the broadest spectrum of audiences possible.
We are committed to Arts Council England’s four principles of investment.
Ambition & Quality
Cultural organisations are ambitious and committed to improving the quality of their work.
Inclusivity & Relevance
England’s diversity is fully reflected in the organisations and individuals that we support and in the culture they produce.
Cultural organisations can thrive and are better able to respond to the challenges of the next decade.
Cultural organisations lead the way in their approach to the climate emergency.
With some technical upgrades to our venue, we can offer excellent staging, lighting, audio and video facilities. our team of technical professionals can provide support and guidance where necessary and we are offering tailor made packages to help make your work happen and bring it to life in Vauxhall.
