What the world needs now is some Cabaret & Drag.
So, obviously we’re running our very own online cabaret & drag course. Perfect for those of you who want to try it for the first time or further develop your skills. You can do all 6 sessions or pick the one (s) right for you with topics like building an act, make up & costume and gender play.
We have a number of full bursaries available to cover the cost for anyone unemployed or claiming Universal Credit or other benefits at the moment. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to make a bursary request.
