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!
Uma Gawd is so excited to meet the little people at Wilton's music hall. Uma has performed to mams, dad's, boys and girls for many years in Ibiza and will be coming from the hazy shores to read and get creative with you all. Uma's favourite book is Meg and Mog on the Moon but who knows what she will be reading out, if he gets to read at all as she will have her ukulele in tow and we all know what happens when that comes out!
