The sickening truth
RuPaul’s Drag Race is bringing the nine-time Emmy Award winning talent contest to this side of the pond for the first ever UK season of the hit TV show. It’s true! Voss Events and World and Wonder are bringing all of the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of the UK queens to Newcastle for this live show. It’s all being hosted by drag queen extraordinaire Alyssa Edwards (pictured) and starring the Season 1 contestants from RuPaul’s Drag Race UK including Baga Chipz, Blu Hydrangea, Cheryl Hole, Crystal, Divina de Campo, Gothy Kendoll, Scaredy Kat, Sum Ting Wong, Vinegar Strokes and The Vivienne. I’ve already picked my winner. Who’s yours?
RuPaul’s Drag Race: UK Season 1, Thursday 28 November, Tyne Theatre and Opera House, Newcastle, 8pm, £45.50/£35.50 (if you’re feeling flush, and you really want to get up close and personal, then there’s also a meet & greet ticket that will set you back £125.50). tynetheatreandoperahouse.uk
