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!
From the land of magical night-time springs the fabulous, fierce and fun fairytale-teller Maxi More. Part glamorous princess, part friendly giant, with a touch of big bad wolf, Maxi travels the lands enchanting all with her outrageous beauty and impossible height. So gather round, listen up and learn about being fierce, being flawless and finding out all the magic of being one of a kind.
Maxi More has been a fixture of the London drag circuit for the last five years and has built up a reputation for being synonymous with FUN! Whether she's running some of London's most outrageous parties, visiting international performance festivals, or popping up in pantomimes across the capital , Maxi will always break the rules of gender and remind us all to have fun, be proud and love who we are, not what we are!
