About the Event

Please RSVP to this event 

This month we will be royally entertained by The Drag Ballerina, Iestyn Edwards.

Iestyn is an Olivier Award winning, Guildhall trained opera singer, vaudevillian and author of the best-selling My Tutu Went AWOL. With a song and dance, he tells how being overheard singing in a converted Suffolk police lockup led to an after-dinner recital for Her Majesty followed by a misguided tour dancing Sugar Plum around the warzones of Iraq and Afghanistan.  And to choosing the wrong Royal Marine for his pas de deux.

Iestyn is a base baritone who has performed at the Royal Opera House and many other venues.  His alter ego, Madam Galina, has entertained troops at military bases throughout Iraq and Afghanistan.

'Fascinating, moving and completely hilarious!'  Miranda Hart

COVID specific reminders

While MOST COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted, we will still be taking precautions to reduce the risk of transmission during physical events:

· If you are symptomatic of COVID-19, please do not attend any physical event. If you test positive you must inform the Secretary or President.

· Members who are clinically at high-risk are advised to decide carefully whether attending face-to-face is a safe option for them in the chosen venue and situation.

· Members are encouraged to continue to wear masks when attending the meeting if they wish to do so, but this is not obligatory (unless specified by the venue). Please respect the choices made by the attendees in this regard.

· All members attending are advised to bring hand-sanitiser with them and to use it at regular intervals during the event.

· Members are advised to bring their own packet of appropriate wipes to wipe surfaces in venue toilets.

· Please note that the names and contact details of all attendees will be recorded to ensure that in the event we are notified of a positive Covid-19 test either from a Member or the Venue we will notify all of the attendees.
