What a Shambles Drag Cabaret

18 November @ 8:00 pm - 19 November @ 1:00 am

£6 – £8

The day is finally upon us and the weather has changed… it’s the return of GAYLE FORCE! All the way from her residency in Cyprus, your favourite has landed back in the UK and ready to take the Yates York stage!

‘Gayle Force, York Pride Drag Race winner, is a seasoned performer and drag queen, with 10+ years experience of theatre, dancing and performing. She can drop into the splits in one click of the fingers and will have you in hysterics within the first 5 minutes! She is a lip-syncing ‘hostess with mostess’ diva and all round ICON’.

Hosted by The Family Shambles own Bodie Snatcher and Lois Carmen Denominator with DJ Bubbles on the decks, you will be invited to experience the best of what York drag has to offer.

However, our star studded line-up doesn’t end there! Also joining us is the backflipping diva Ivy Dripp and Leeds Viaduct Vixen/Comedy genius Ruby from the show-bar stage!

Doors open at 8pm where you will be greeted by our wonderful door host Luna Hex and have enough time to find your seats and get your drinks in before the show starts! The full-blown cabaret show will be followed by a disco full of camp and cheesy tunes by DJ Bubbles till close!

Tickets are £6 (+ booking fee) when bought in advance using the link below, or £8 on the door.

WARNING: There has been a report of ‘Gayle Force’ winds, so you better come and take shelter on the 18th of November for a jaw dropping cabaret show you won’t want to miss!


The Family Shambles are a drag quartet who offer a variety of different events monthly. From cabaret to club, brunch and more, we hope to cater for EVERYONE and pride ourselves on our community focus. Make sure to follow us on social media ‘TheFamilyShambles’ to keep up to date with our upcoming events. Our promise: you WILL be entertained!
