Drag Queen Storytime

On Saturday 5th March we invited the brilliant Nightbus to join us for Drag Queen Storytime at our Saturday drama groups and at Paignton Library later that afternoon!

The Nightbus shared enchanting stories by queer authors and writers of colour, in a safe and loving environment.

Paignton Library expressed that:

“As a library we thought the session was a great success, teaching all ages about acceptance and diversity. The event also brought in new people that had not attended the library before. We will be excited to host similar events in the future.”

 

The storytime was followed by a crafts session,  where we decorated fabulous paper wigs and had the chance to #bringittotherunway , whilst snapping some photos with The Nightbus.

The Nightbus is a Queer, Muslim, Neurodiverse and Genderfluid Drag Queen. They have worked with Z-Arts Theatre Manchester, Half Moon Theatre, Liverpool Empire, Leas Cliff Hall Theatre Folkestone, Homotopia Festival, The Shipwright Festival London, Arts Council England, Manchester City Council and the BBC. Thank you so much for joining us!
