No one was in the mood for partying in 2020, so when one of Fortitude Valley's best-known watering holes hit a big milestone, it didn't celebrate the occasion. It isn't like The Wickham to pass up the opportunity to throw a shindig, though. Accordingly, from Monday, March 8–Sunday, March 14, it's pretending that last year didn't happen and marking its 135th birthday in 2021.

Every day of the week this week, the venue has something on offer. On Monday night, you can sit in the beer garden, sip drinks and listen to a live podcast about the pub's history. On Tuesday, Brisbane's best upcoming drag queens will be doing their thing. Wednesday night sees live talk show Vollie and Friends take over for an anniversary special, and trivia is on the agenda on Thursday.

On Friday and Saturday, there'll be both live tunes and DJs — and drag as well — while it wouldn't be a weekend without a Sunday session.

Across the week, expect to spend time watching Solar Flair, Luna Thicc, Wilhelmina Westwood, Yana Michelle, Kelly Roberts, Chocolate Boxx, Stefani Stefani, Veritee, Kim Schotte and The Dandys, and listening to DJ Jamez Brown, DJ J-San, DJ Dolly Lama and DJ Galleon.
