    Drag Queen Cabaret and Catwalk Competition with the lucky winner crowned with a ‘Bespoke Tiara’

    A Midsummer Night’s Queen is a drag queen cabaret and catwalk competition inspired by William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Taking place at Mash Guru the event will provide a safe space for everyone to come together and celebrate the art of drag queens, whether you want to participate or simply watch.

    There will be a well-lit dressing room area upstairs at Mash Guru, Macclesfield with rails of clothes, wigs, jewellery and shoes in the frocks and locks area. The aim is to invite guests who are new to drag to dress up and gain expert advice from the more experienced queens.

    Your host for the evening will be accomplished drag queen Nana Nancy, who will compere the evening with her humour as the queens sashay down the catwalk lip-synching, dancing or singing encouraged to show their talents.
