About this deal

Along with the circa 50 little ones performing, there were now several groups of older girls milling about and the volume of chat, scream and excitement was now extreme.

The reason this annoyed me was because it was the adult deciding, the kid was having a perfectly good time and didn’t say that the park wasn’t good enough. There is no such thing as “Straight Graphs” when it comes to this things but it’s important to not give up and remember that it get worse before it gets better . And once she reaches adulthood, we have a new level to navigate (education, work, living arrangements, independence, life skills). It was spectacular… And this was followed by her brother Rex in his tap routine – which was quite simply adorable, so I continued to cry. Her name was Audrey, and I distinctly remembered that--although its less common--Audrey can be used as a boy's name, and I actually thought it was very cute, so that's what I named my son.Every week she was saying she didn’t want to do the show, which was such a shame after all this time learning the routine. However here we are, moving into a big old people house (it was with the previous family for 58 years! Audrey was in the Camp Bestival campaign for 2019, which meant we could attend at a discounted rate and it forced me into trying festival life! It was in another pub, The Union Tavern in South London, then hailed the Palladium of Drag, that George first saw Patrick Fyffe, performing as Perri St Claire.

I admire the character and anyone who has gone through a similar situation of anxiety, depression or bullying and got out. Audrey has asked for a picnic party at home for her birthday with traditional party games (musical statues etc) and I’m already worrying about whether her friends will be rolling their eyes and cringing at the choice to still play games. I expected to be a big sobbing mess because it was my mum’s favourite film and we played “Somewhere” at her funeral.

Now genteel ladies of a certain age – and from another age – they performed songs (for the benefit of the uneducated masses) by Ivor Novello (“dear Ivor”), Noël Coward and Gilbert and Sullivan. George wasn’t in drag at the time, but it was around the same time, long before he’d make his name as Dr Evadne Hinge, that he was first tempted to drag up. Without answering, he grabbed his makeshift bedding and scurried away toward the back of the little village compound. After playing in numerous London gay pubs and clubs in the early 1970s, including the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, [10] their double act rose to prominence when their show, An Evening with Hinge and Bracket, played at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1974.
