Priscilla Queen of the Desert - East Midlands Social

Join us in Leicester for an evening of Australian camp fabulousness!
Priscilla Queen of the Desert is the hilarious but sometimes heart-wrenching adventure of three friends who climb aboard a battered old bus named Priscilla and head to Alice Springs, in the remote Australian desert, to put on the drag show of a lifetime. Their epic journey is an engaging story: playful, feisty and emotional in equal parts (as well as offering up plenty of fabulous 1970s dance-floor classics!)
"Priscilla is such a wonderful Australian story about diversity. It is a modern musical with a great heart.” (Jason Donovan, Producer)

I will contact attendees in the week before about arrangements for meeting for a pre-theatre dinner before the show starts. The show runs for 2hrs 20mins and will finish at approximately 10:00pm. After the show we'll head out for a bevvie or two, either at one of the nearby cocktail bars such as the Exchange, or at the Dover Castle, Leicester’s oldest and busiest gay pub - but the show itself will be the focus of the social.
Leicester has plenty of good value accommodation for anyone thinking of staying over to attend the show - why not make a weekend of it! Message Skip directly for guidance on accommodation options, or if you have any other questions about the event.
