Some of the world’s most popular burlesque and drag acts are coming to Bedford for a special party night at the Empire club on Friday May 19.
Organisers Victoria Kahl and Chris White believes the venue will be the perfect setting for the event, called Extravaganza – and are encouraging the audience to dress up for the occasion.
Victoria said: “I’m passionate about drag, beauty and femininity. I want to help create something amazing where I live, and best of all, a show I really want to see myself.
“I’m a huge fan of drag queens, and I’ve been attending shows for a few years now across the UK. We’ve had the beginnings small scene here, especially when the Glambassador of Bedford, Eddie Adams, was in town.”
Chris said: ““I’m a big fan of going out in Bedfordshire. Since moving here from London two years ago, I have always been impressed with the wealth of entertainment in the town and I know our event will just add to it.”
Acts include Joe Black, Virgin Xtravaganzah, Aurora Galore, Lady Stephen and Rosy Apples.
The show runs from 9pm until late. Tickets cost £16.90. Visit www.skiddle.com or www.extravaganza-bedford.co.uk to book or for more information.
