Gecko Variety Show

by Nilmini

Gecko is proud to announce our very first Variety Show!  Please join us this Thursday, 7:30pm at The Miller, London Bridge.  All tickets are on the door. You can find all the info you need on the flyer below.  Make sure you don’t arrive on Sri Lankan time if you don’t want to get heckled by the comedians.

For a teeny tiny £5, you’ll have a great night of entertainment and be supporting Save The Children Sri Lanka’s Badulla Project – providing Early Childhood Care and Development to the plantation worker community.

Hosted by comedienne Ruby Basara

Ruby Basara is a shocking character actor and comic.  Her petite and pretty frame fool the audience as her bold persona explodes on stage.  Her act consists of pulling extraordinary faces whilst playing bizarre Asian characters revealing her twisted perception of Indian and South Asian culture.  She is currently on the London comedy circuit and will be performing at Edinburgh Festival this summer.


Kate Thomas

The striking East Londoner Kate recently made her west end debut in ‘Recipe for a Perfect Wife’ and has also been singing with a gypsy band at both Ronnie Scott’s and Glastonbury Festival.  Kate particularly loves exploring her jazz and blues tones; giving real meaning to every word that she sings.  Her ballads in particular never fail to move. She promises to be by turns passionate, compelling and playful.

Ashley Fayth

Fresh on the London folk scene, this 24 year-old Newfoundlander is bringing something very different to the stage – and people are stopping to listen.  Her emotive vocals showcase newly refined pop-folk sensibilities and a poetic yet quirky lyrical style often compared to Laura Marling, Jewel, Lisa Hannigan, and Joni Mitchell.

Further performances from Steven BaileyKate Smurthwaite, Don BiswasJennifer BelanderDhiya Arora!  We can’t wait to see you there!
