Drag Idol Reporter at The Old Ship: Friday 17th May
In the past week, your roving Drag Idol reporter made it to several London heats all of which were packed with rather fabulous new cabaret talent.
On Friday we were at The Old Ship in Limehouse for their second heat hosted by the marvellous Mandy Gap. There were eight acts covering a variety of cabaret styles and in the end the judges actually put four of them through to this Saturday’s heat final; The Sisters, Scarlet Love, Sissy Lea and Kate Butch. At The RVT, the hilarious Cynthia Seaward went through while at The Two Brewers it was Kola Bear. At The Admiral Duncan they put through Passionella and PoppyCock, at Central Station it was both The Sisters and Clamydia Jones while at Halfway the winners were Flora Tubb and Cynthia Seaward.
Elsewhere in Drag Idol land at Mary’s in Cardiff, Justin Drag has become their champion and goes to the semi-finals. Aunty Linda and Alfie Ordinary won at Charles Street Tap, and Very Cherry at Eden, while at Sundowners it was London Victoria going through.
This week many many venues including The Two Brewers, The RVT, Old Ship, Halfway II Heaven, Admiral Duncan, Sundowners, Quay Pride, Eden Bar, Via Manchester, Charles Street and more have their heat final, check the Drag Idol website for dates and times.
