A dazzling drag show hoping to make you 'forget all your troubles for just one night' is set to visit Ipswich this summer, as part of a nationwide tour which has already sold out in several locations.
Absolutely Dragulous mother-daughter drag duo Marilyn and Amanda Fockhard — who off stage are a married couple — will be performing at the Westgate Ward Social Club in August for an evening of comedy, lip synchs and choreographed routines.
Venues in Bath, Aylesbury, Stratford Upon Avon and Stanway Village Hall in Colchester have sold out already, with limited tickets available for other locations.
The show aims to "make you laugh, forget all your troubles for just one night and allow you to escape the real world".
'Mother' of the drag duo Marilyn said: "I started Absolutely Dragulous to spread some much needed cheer and laughter. 2020 has ben such a bad year and no matter what has been thrown at us, we have overcome it.
"We are proud to be 100% Covid secure — we have temperature checks upon arrival and strict one way systems.
"All government guidance has been read and followed, we have also been working closely with local councils and police forces to make sure all guidance is followed and correct.
