This article is from 2007.
We chat to Judith Riddle, press officer at the Vaudeville Cabaret Club, a night of eclectic exotica and risqué entertainment hosted by the ever so suave Dusty Limits (pictured). Every night at 1am it morphs into the One O’Clock Gun club, a showcase of indie, rock and other live acts.
