FLY THE FLAG - BEST OF BRITISH THEMED DRAG ACT
Hold on to your Union Jacks darling its the outrageous and lively world of Fly the Flag. All of whom are professionally trained West End dancers and singers... and we're talking the real West End (not that pub with the function room upstairs on the borders of Soho!)
Fly the Flag bring a new level of excitement to any event. Their cabaret dance revue is extremely tasteful and appeals to wide variety of audience with 3 drag artists and 3 male dancers they can cater to any of your entertainment requirements. If its Mc' ing you are looking for they can perform and host for all types of functions whether big or small, edgy or sophisticated or downright chaotic. They quite simply can make the party!
According to Time Out -
"There's traditional drag, there's alternative drag, and then there's drag that's so slick and polished, such distinctions hardly seem to matter. Still new to the drag scene, but their background in musical theatre is evident from the outset. Each number is tightly choreographed, and the dance routines are impressive and often surprising. They even perform a ballet number 'en pointe'. The girls mix show tunes with pop, and there's plenty of wit, but none of the misogyny that drags many drag shows down to base level.. It's an entertaining show that will appeal to gay and straight audiences alike. Add a trio of dancing muscle boys as eye candy, and you have the makings of a fun night out. If you liked 'Priscilla', you'll love this."
Roll up your trousers and pop a knotted hanky on your head its
the Great British summer.. but don't blink or you will miss it.. get that end of the pier feeling with walking bathers huts, Gypsy Rose Lee herself doing some crystal ball gazing, The Victorian Flea Circus and The Victorian Strongman
but hurry before its over! See Also Alice in Wonderland
