The Kingdom Come!

Saturday 26th November 2016 marked several firsts for us and Sheffield. It was the first time Sheffield had its own drag king night (to our knowledge), the first time we had produced an event at Walkley Community Centre, and the first time we brought together an all gender crowd to celebrate queer culture. Both of us have been producing events for a number of years, but this was the first time Andro and Eve had done something at this scale and it was both scary and exhilarating! On all fronts we can say; we pulled it off!

With over 80 people turning out to watch this cabaret show with a difference, many in drag costume, there was a great atmosphere on the night. The homemade cakes went down a treat and the drag kings brought their best; we’ve not laughed so hard in a long time. Highlights for us included, Benjamin Butch and Suzy the mop, Adam All beatboxing, and Apple Derrieres’ solo medley about her vagina. It was truly silly, surreal and fabulous.

‘Such a great night. Had a lot of fun; we don’t get enough of this in Sheffield. Thank-you’.                   – Audience feedback

We’ve been so happy to hear and read the positive comments from the audience, and really enjoyed meeting so many different people. Because of this, we already have plans for the next one. Watch this space! Thank you to all who supported this new night, and especially Adam All and Apple Derrieres for helping us curate such a good show. If you want to get involved in what we do, we’re always keen to collaborate. Just drop us a line at androandeve@gmail.com.
