Drag queens Choriza May, Blu Hydrangea, Cheryl Hole, Anubis and Cherry Valentine will all perform in a special gig called HERSTORY: Hartlepool at the Borough Hall on Saturday evening, November 6.

The event is brought to the town by events company Inside Promotions and company director David Clark has described the show as “energetic, inclusive and enjoyable”.

David, from Hartlepool, who also runs the Duke of Cleveland pub, has said that the show had to be moved to a bigger venue after the success of the first event organised by the company back in 2020.

The event will take place at the Borough Hall on Saturday, November 6.

David, 28, said: “There’s no gay bars in Hartlepool so it’s trying to create a diverse community.

"It’s quite accepting and inclusive.

"It’s to try and create a safe space for anyone.

"People across the spectrum enjoy Drag Race so it’s kind of bringing them all together in one place.

"It’s quite inclusive, being able to watch quite a funny, but intimate show as well.”

He continued: "It’s pretty much sold out now. The support from Hartlepool has been amazing.

"It gives people one night to come together, accept everyone for who they are and enjoy the show.”
