Metropolitan Police officers evacuated the LGBT + venue and nearby Charing Cross station on Monday afternoon after a suspicious package was reported.
The club has been closed since December and locals are believed to have been targeted after the stars posted their repeat on social media.
Jeremy Joseph, owner of the Villiers Street venue, said Course de dragsters stars The Vivienne, Tia Kofi and Veronica Green and were “all on stage playing” alongside Liverpool drag queen Shania Pain in preparation for the upcoming Slide Queens of Pop musical– when the police entered the scene.
“There had been a bomb threat and everyone was evacuated except poor me as we waited for the police dogs to arrive,” Joseph wrote on social media.
“As the hall was closed outside of rehearsals, I had to walk around with the police and sniffer dogs to check the hall, in the meantime Charing Cross station, Villier Street and Craven Street, all evacuated.
“I’m not gonna lie, it was scary, but I can’t say enough good things about the police dog team, they were amazing, they have to enter a building, not knowing if a threat is real or a hoax. “
Mr. Joseph added: “Whoever made this call is nothing but sick. “
Scotland Yard did not confirm the exact target of the apparent hoax, but said in a statement that specialist agents visited “a business premises in Villiers Street and examined the article which was subsequently confirmed as non-suspect.”
“The circumstances in which the object was found suggest that it was part of an intentional hoax and that an investigation is underway to identify the person (s) responsible,” the Met said.
“There is no indication at this early stage of any particular motive, but this will be one of the main lines of investigation for officers as their investigation continues.
Tia Kofi called the ordeal “terrifying”, writing on Twitter: “We are all safe but shaken. Thanks for all the nice messages. “
Simon Jones, a spokesperson for three of the artists, said: “It was all pretty scary. We believe he was targeted as Heaven has been closed since December and the girls announced on Instagram that they were in Heaven earlier today.
