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!
