Bent London triflemakers Duckie come to Waltham Forest to celebrate the legacy of Leytonstone’s formidable homegal Fanny Cradock, as post-war pop culture, style, food, gender politics and aspiration combine in this quite queer celebration of a real British icon.
A summer highlight of London Borough of Culture 2019, it's a grand show ünt disco for 1,000 Fans of Fanny, designed by Laura Hopkins, choreographed by Lea Anderson, with vintage chanteuse Alison David and militant culinarian Tracey Smith.
25 identical Fanny Cradock dragsters of all genders will take centre stage in the spectacular production.
Come and collect a luncheon voucher for a taste of the fabulously retro 10 bites on offer, served by a fleet of fannytastic Trolly Dollys.
Dress code: Come as a Fanny, come as a Johnny, or come as you are.
DJ and MC Amy Lamé transmits the femme musical soundtrack from Fanny’s fame years from 1956 to 1976 – from Alma Cogan to Kathy Kirby, Tina Charles to Baccara.
