An Evening with Neil McKenna

An evening with acclaimed author and journalist Neil McKenna, author of The Secret Life of Oscar Wilde (2004) and Fanny & Stella (2013) and contributor to national and international newspapers, magazines and TV programmes. Born and raised in Whalley Range, this will be a unique opportunity to hear Neil talk about his life and work, including Fanny and Stella, the Drag Queens who shocked Victorian London. There will be camp. There may be Polari, there may be an appearance from the Whalley Range monkey of Neil's youth...


The evening is organised as part of the ongoing project Life's A Drag http://www.lifesadragmcr.co.uk


The event is free to attend and will be held in The Polari Lounge, Via Fossa.
