Get It Booked

Mon 12th Aug- The Pretty Weird Tour- Waterfront, Norwich

So just a few weeks after we celebrated Trinity the Tuck coming to Norwich, the wonderful Slay bring us 2 more fantastic Ru Pauls Drag Race Queens. Slay are still amazing but see 2 weeks ago blog to read about how great they truly are. So this week we have the talent of Plastique Tiara and current reigning Americas Next Best Drag Superstar Yvie Oddly.

Plastique Tiara originally from Texas, who came 8th in the season, known for her sickening “fishy” looks and her fierce makeup skills. Then we have the unique talents of Yvie Oddly known for her turning herself into a live visual piece of art. Between the two of them they promise to put on a show Norwich not likely to forget anytime soon. The show promises to be a full show with the two artists with support from the ever popular Rujazzle another artistic queen who should compliment Yvie’s style of drag.

As it stands this is the last Slay show here for a little while but if you are in dyer need of a slay fix and fancy travelling further afield the team are bringing Raja to Manchester in September, Violet Chachki to London in September and The Boulet Brother Dragula to London in September. Sure it won’t be long until Slay are back in the region but make the most of the queens when they visit.

One To Watch

Sat 17th Aug- Sun 1st Sept- The Secret Garden- Maddermarket Theatre, Norwich

This week the Norwich Players are back with their adaptation of the Frances Hodgson Burnett novel. The story in traditional telling tells the story of Mary who is suddenly orphaned finds herself losing her aristocratic parents and becomes orphaned, she is forced back to live in the UK with an unknown secretive uncle.

As she gets used to her new life she discovers there is more to her Uncle’s manor than originally thought and unlocks the magical secret garden. Adapted for the stage by Jessica Swale this version was first performed in Chester in 2014. Promising to be excellent family entertainment during the summer holidays this is definitely one to watch and with 2 weeks to see it there really is no excuse not to.

Worth a Go

Fri 16th August- Red Method- The B2 Brickmakers

In a summer of drag, comedy, pride, theatre I think it’s time for some rock. So for some rock the Brickmakers have you covered with an evening of live music from Alpha Omega, Killer Hurts, Enenra, Dishonour the Crown and headliners Red Method.  The show promises to be visually intense with some emotionally created music that the band can’t wait to play. Think Slipknot, Alice in Chains and The Prodigy to get an idea of what your in for.
