Wilton's

Free story telling from our fabulous drag performers

13th September . 10am to 11am .
Free ·

Listen to your favourite stories and discover new ones, as they are read and brought to life by colourful and charismatic, gender fluid performers.

Inspired by Drag Queen Story Hour in San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles, we present our own, home-grown and dressed up story sessions with added song, dance and craft. Each of our Tales in Drag sessions will be led by a drag king or queen, with help from a glamorous assistant (or facilitator as they are often known these days). Our stories have been specially selected to encourage children to be true to and have confidence in themselves and to embrace any differences in themselves or others – no matter what those differences may be. Tales may include a musical element or accompaniment. Story-telling will be followed by a craft session, themed to complement the magical tales told and our hour of fun will close with another short story and/or music and dance so there will be plenty of opportunity for budding performers to show off shamelessly. Dressing up is optional (though strongly encouraged) but having MASSIVE FUN will be compulsory!  

Tricity Vogue has been performing as a cabaret singer and musician since 2004, both nationally and internationally. She is the writer of Heels Of Glory: The Drag Action Musical with composer Richard Link, which received Arts Council development funding, and enjoyed a five-star, three week run at the Chelsea Theatre in 2016 as part of the Pride in London Festival. Her nine-piece All Girl Swing Band has filled Wilton's main hall for three years running, and she has also staged two solo cabaret shows at Wilton's: Calamitous Liaisons and Songs For Swinging Ukuleles. In 2014 she transformed her stage look from showgirl to man drag, as a nod to Frank Sinatra, before taking Songs For Swinging Ukuleles to the Edinburgh Fringe, where it was selected as a Not Television Festival Fringe Discovery. She had her long hair cut short live on stage at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern in March 2014. A film of the transformation made by Ben Walters was screened at the New York Queer Film Festival.
