All I Want for Christmas is Attention at Palace Theatre, Manchester 1 December 2019 Tickets from £16.90 — Book now

As the building redevelopment for the Contact Theatre continues, the organisation continues to produce trailblazing and progressive programming across venues in Manchester. Hosted by the Palace Theatre, the Contact Christmas show this year is a real delight. Following the huge success of last year’s To Jesus, Thanks for Everything, Jinkx Monsoon and BenDeLaCreme will take to the stage with their new show, All I Want for Christmas is Attention.

With high spirits, a little song and a good dose of egg nog, this is great entertainment at its very best.

With high spirits, a little song and a good dose of egg nog, DeLa and Jinkx will launch the festive season with an all-new two-queen Christmas extravaganza. This is great entertainment at its very best.

BenDeLaCreme is perhaps best known as Miss Congeniality from Season 6 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, as well as the multi-record breaking powerhouse of All Stars 3. Sweet as pie and sharp as cheddar, she has performed all over the world, premiered four critically acclaimed solo shows Off-Broadway; has written, directed and produced a plethora of variety shows and played to sold-out houses for over ten years. We’re most thrilled that All I Want for Christmas is Attention marks DeLa’s first production credit for an international tour.

A diligent, ambitious single mother, Jinkx Monsoon won Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Since winning the show she has toured the world, performing her original cabaret shows, with her music partner, Major Scales.

Just what we all need in the scramble towards Christmas.

Refreshing and sparkling, All I Want for Christmas is Attention won’t send you away with a pertinent or important message for the world, but it is guaranteed to be a fabulous night of entertainment and possibly just what we all need in the scramble towards Christmas.
