Time Out says

Head to the National Archeives to delve into LGBTQ+ history. At this drop in session you’ll be tasked with researching  The Link, a ‘lonely-hearts’ style publication from the early twentieth century, which is littered with coded language for men to meet men, with phrases including ‘bachelor’, ‘bohemian’ and ‘unconventional’. Your research will then feature at a final performance on November 23 at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, where Timberlina and Auntie Maureen will bring to life some of these coded, intriguing and sometimes naughty personal ads found in our collections.
