Danny Beard and Their Live Band

8 June @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


‘High fashion, hilarious and hairy! What’s not to love?’ GRAHAM NORTON

‘The drag, the comedy, the voice – the phrase triple threat was created for Danny Beard ’ ALAN CARR

The winner of Drag Race U.K. season 4, Danny Beard has announced their debut solo theatre tour.  The initial shows kick off with a special hometown performance on Thursday 23 February at Liverpool’s Playhouse and then onto Saturday 4th March at London’s Clapham Grand.  Accompanied by a full live band, the show promises to be packed full of humor, show-stopping music performances, and dazzling fashion.

With over 168,000 Instagram followers and counting, this Liverpool-born performer broke records as the first bearded queen to appear on Drag Race U.K! And the first bearded drag queen to win any Drag Race franchise globally. Join Danny as they take to the stage and says:

‘I’m so excited to share this solo theatre show with everyone! It’s bigger, better, and more CAMP than ever before!’  DANNY BEARD 2023

Since winning Drag Race, Danny has been in huge demand. Most recently they have had a cameo role in Hollyoaks, presented Eurovision content, have been selected to perform at Graham Norton’s Variety performance.

Danny also hosts a weekly LGBTQ+ podcast, The Gossip Gays which has recently been picked up by the Acast Creator network. Produced by Audio Always, Danny and co-host Billy give us a run down on the week’s news, gossip, as well as turning agony aunt with hilarious consequences.

A self-proclaimed ‘shady, singing, cartoon clown’, Danny is a singer and performer with unique flare and humor.  They were a semi-finalist on Britain’s Got Talent and a regular on Manchester’s Drag scene, often appearing at cabaret nights mixing club kid aesthetic with old school drag performance style as well hosting and headlining pride festivals across the country.
