Bembridge Village Hall and The Isle Of Wight are bracing themselves for the arrival of the spectacularly talented International Drag Queen Miss Jason.
Following hot on the heels of their successful sell out Christmas show, the Isle of Wight Gay Men’s Chorus are inviting you to a special evening of Cabaret and song, entitled ‘Life’s a drag!’ at Bembridge Village Hall on Saturday 23rd July, 7:30pm (doors open at 7pm).
The Chorus will be joined by Miss Jason, who will entertain the audience with comedy and songs from stage, film and pop. The Chorus will also be joined by the immensely talented Becky Dueck and Samantha Howard as our guest sopranos.
There will also be a few special guests from the award winning Actually Gay Men’s Chorus in Brighton, who are coming along to support our Chorus.
Fundraiser for LGBTQ young people
The event will be raising money for Breakout Youth Project here on the Island, which provides an invaluable Youth Service to LGBTQ young people.
The Gay Men’s Chorus Chairman, Matthew Bundy, said
“We are excited and proud to be hosting such an amazing variety of music genres on this evening. We hope to provide something for all tastes in music. The Chorus have put a lot of effort in over the past three months and we are looking forward to raising lots of money for Breakout Youth Project and supporting the younger LGBTQ population on the Island.
“To have such a well known Drag Artist as Miss Jason coming along is a great coup and a great opportunity for the Islands Gay community, to see what their counterparts in other areas of the Country rave about!”
Tickets are selling out fast, but some are still available online.
