The Spiegeltent Christmas Drag Ball

THE SPIEGELTENT CHRISTMAS DRAG BALL at Christmas at The Spiegeltent Wed 19 December 2018 from 8pm - 1.30am

Kings, Queens and everyone in-between! Book your tickets for the new highlight of the season’s social calendar – The Spiegeltent Christmas Drag Ball!

This year the Spiegeltent are queering Christmas, serving a high energy camp-drag-cabaret packed with a host of fierce international drag queens, kings, burlesque and cabaret superstars, produced in partnership with Eat Sleep Drag Repeat.

Expect the usual hedonism of our annual masquerade ball mixed with a runway pounding stage show, powerful lipsyncs for your life, explosive acts, fierce looks, wigs styled for the gods and the best in gender-bending entertainment. Your night will be topped off with epic dancefloor disco beats from the best of the UK’s LGBTQIA DJs.

Although the full line-up is still strictly under wraps, we’re absolutely delighted to present your host for the evening, the phenomenally talented Virgin Xtravaganzah!

“Heaven is boring. Gawd is old. I am a 2,000+ year old virgin and I have had enough! So I came down to earth to be a superstar!”

Virgin Xtravaganzah (AKA the Virgin Mary AKA The Holy Mother of Gawd) is a drag queen in celestial robes of leather and lace sent from heaven to absolve you of your sins. Originally from Oregon, she’s London’s Holy one and only Virgin Mary drag compere and comedian. Imagine Mary as a pissed-off drag queen with a valley girl accent and you’re on the right track. She is a Virgin on a mission, and she is out to make the world #StrutWithChrist!

Regardless of your sexuality or gender, this night is for everyone (not just our LGBTQIA friends!). Get yourself a ticket and get your glad-drags on – all are welcome at the Spiegeltent!

Host: Virgin Xtravaganzah – (AKA the Virgin Mary AKA The Holy Mother of Gawd)
Complete line-up of international drag and cabaret stars and DJs to be announced!

“Gender is a construct, tear it apart!” – Sasha Velour

We don’t want to tell you how to dress, but whatever your gender we encourage you to get creative with drag to become your fiercest, most fabulous self. Perhaps you are a dapper gentleman in a smart suit, with a fine moustache? Maybe you’d look great in a little black dress? Or perhaps you’re an all-out high-camp glitter queen in a huge wig? Whatever your style, remember the words of Mother RuPaul: “We’re all born naked and the rest is drag!”

The Legendary Spiegeltent

Spiegeltents have always been the domain of night owls, heartbreakers and dream chasers. Literally translated as ‘mirror tents’, spiegeltents were originally built in Belgium in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Designed as travelling ballrooms, the mirrors were important as they allowed discrete eye contact to be made across a crowded dance floor, their innate beauty and romance have continued to attract artists who would normally only perform in much larger venues. Christmas at the Spiegeltent continues that fine tradition with an outstanding line up for 2018.
