Part of Greenwich Fair
Duration: 60 minutes
Type: Music, Theatre
Step into a magical pop-up world of imagination where boundaries are forgotten and anyone can be whoever they want to be. Join some of the UK’s leading drag artists for this family-friendly show featuring storytelling, lipsync, dressing-up, games, songs and a lot of glitter! Age Range: 3-8 (but fabulous for adults too!).
Want more fabulousness? Meet the artists and join in the fun in a more relaxed setting with glittery face painting, storytelling and games with Tickertape Parade’s informal activity sessions, running throughout Greenwich Fair and open to all ages and stages.
Drop into the activity sessions on Saturday 22 June, 1pm-6pm and Sunday 23 June, 12pm-5pm. (Excluding show times)
Fantabulosa! will be performed as part of Greenwich Fair, GDIF’s two-day “festival within a festival” from 21-23 June, bringing together UK and international street arts companies to Greenwich Town Centre in a fun-filled, family-friendly extravaganza.
There is step-free access to Fantabulosa! There are sections of lawn at the Old Royal Naval College that have a slight curb. Ramps will be in place and, in the event of wet-weather, we will install Trakway wherever possible.
This area will be marked with a flag or sign and will have limited seating – please ask a GDIF Volunteer if you’re not sure where to go.
There will be an interpreter at all shows on Sunday 23 June, with some BSL integrated into the show itself.
