Ursula Martinez: Free Admission | Purcell Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall | 28 July – 2 August | 7:45pm | £17
Ursula Martinez presents the follow up to her hit show ‘My Stories, Your Emails’.
They Say: An attempt to understand the absurdity of modern living, and celebrate the difficulties of being a human, particularly a human with a vagina…
Burlesque troupe The Folly Mixtures invite you to a night of playful, sexy and silly entertainment – expect song, dance, circus and burlesque, and maybe some special guests.
“Gig meets theatre meets tidal wave of glitter. A poetically wild musical exploring the beauteous complexity of our fragile minds. Depression is at its heart, but it’s not depressing – it’s joyous, funny and hopeful”.
They Say: A strangely compelling story with live music, vigorous dance moves, understandable words and a fair bit of profound (probably life changing) body movement.
Adam All & Apple Derrières host a monthly Drag King cabaret show, open-mic & party. This month, the theme is wet and nautical, so be prepared to have your timbers shivered and your swash unbuckled by performances from Juan Kerr, Juan Tanimo-Bay, Richard von Wild, Zach Backencrack & MORE!
Kickstart your Brighton Pride 2015 with disco, live performance and a party experience like no other! A chance to practice your parade, wear your hot pants, and give it all you’ve got.
Border Force – Queering the Borders for Gay Shame – is Duckie’s big night out for Brighton Pride Weekend, an immersive nightclub & disko-show about freedom of movement.
They Say: Join Duckie in a globalised clubland where we challenge the drag of national identity, confront xenophobia and queer the borders. Dress code, travel fashion: beach bum, business exec, expat, hetero holidaymaker, hitchhiker, pirate, trolly dolly, sex tourist, budgie smuggler.
The legendary pop’n’cabaret knees-up makes a return for Brighton Pride!
They Say: Expect a Greatest Hits set of party anthems from DJ Sal, and of course inimitable smutty cabaret and game shows with Stu and Dolly. Penny Up The Crack, anyone? Remember – Too Much Is Never Enough!
Another Brighton Pride institution, The Marlborough’s street party will feature DJs, food, booze and love, with the iconic Brighton Pavilion as a backdrop.
A new performance piece from Vera Chok, in collaboration with HIV expert Dr Michael Brady, pops up at artist John Walter’s mega installation, Alien Sex Club.
An exploration of cultural identity – expect a day rich with workshop activities, inspiring fashion shows, cutting edge music and exquisite food!
