Due to COVID-19
Sweet Wednesday parties
are temporarily suspended
Dear friends, fun lovers and fans of Sweet Wednesday,
Bob and I hope you have all stayed well and sane over the past four unprecedented months. If you’d told us at our last party on March 4th that Sweet Wednesday would be closed – possibly for the rest of the year – we’d have thought you were crazy. But, well, it looks like that could easily turn out to be the case…
Central Station got in touch with us a few days ago to let us know that they plan to re-open the public bar in July – depending on government advice on numbers, social distancing, etc. This is a trans-friendly space and will welcome any of you who can travel and arrive dressed.
However, they WILL NOT be opening the underground basement because it is clearly impossible to maintain any kind of safe social distancing down there. Which means Sweet Wednesday (and all the other clubs) will not be opening in July.
The possibility of holding a Sweet Wednesday social event in the public bar – with very limited numbers – was discussed. This would be a lovely opportunity to dress and have a drink and a chat with old friends. But we will have to wait to see how the COVID-19 situation progresses throughout July and August before making a decision.
Watch this space for further details.
It seems to Bob and me that Sweet Wednesday is likely to remain closed until the government allow people to meet in a completely unrestricted way. In other words, probably not until there is a COVID-19 vaccine, or an effective treatment, or the virus mutates into a relatively harmless form.
So until we meet again… stay well, stay happy – and let’s all look forward to having fun just as soon as it’s safe to do so.
Love you... and miss you!!
Bob and Nancy xx

DOWNSTAIRS in Sweet WEDNESDAY...
...it's relaxed and friendly. Make your way downstairs to the basement club or, if you're a trans-girl wanting to change, you'll be shown upstairs (without entering the club proper) to the changing room.
Changing room opens at midday - 1 hour before the club - for girls who can't arrive dressed.
The cloakroom is permanently staffed and a safe place to leave coats, bags, wallets, mobiles, etc. Ask about our small zippy bags for small items (phone, cards, keys, money) that you want to keep safe but access frequently.
UPSTAIRS in CENTRAL STATION...
...on the ground floor there's a fully licensed public bar which opens at midday and serves drinks, excellent bar food (from 12 - 3 and 6 - 9pm), coffee, tea, etc. There is also a lovely, secluded roof terrace on the first floor where smoking is permitted. Sweet Wednesday girls and guys are welcomed on the ground and first floors of the building by the trans-friendly staff and clientele. Girls new to dressing in public find the warmth of the whole environment a liberating place to begin.
The ground floor public bar and the roof terrace are shared with the general public and T-girls and guys MUST wear clothing
appropriate to a public place.
Please note that the 2nd and 3rd floors (the bedroom floors) are OUT OF BOUNDS except to hotel residents and their guests.
The Central Station public bar is open until 1.00am - why not stay on and have a drink after Sweet Wednesday closes at 9.00?
Wireless internet access is available for free.
Central Station offers very reasonable B&B (including an excellent full English breakfast). Check out the Central Station website for prices and full information centralstation.co.uk or phone 020 7278 3294
