Arnolfini - est 1961

MAYFEST | Presented by MAYK & Arnolfini – “Big smiles, big lashes, brilliant books and fun songs.”

“Funny, sparkly and fantastic with the little ones even when they attempted to upstage!”

“Anything that makes the children proud of who they are, and want to act or read out loud, anything that builds their confidence, is perfect.”

“I think the lessons about diversity and inclusivity are really important for primary school children to learn.”

Fairy tales come to life and dress up is real… 

Drag Queen Story Time is exactly as it sounds. Drag Queens read stories to children, capturing the imagination and fun of the gender fluidity of childhood, while giving children glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. By providing spaces in which kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions, DQST allows them to imagine the world in which people can present as they wish.

At Mayfest, Drag Queen Story Time will be performed by International drag star Alyssa Van Delle, who will leave you laughing on the floor with her quick wit, and have you up on your feet with her vocal talents.

Tickets are Pay What You Decide, suggested donation £5 on the door.
