Drag Queen Story Time at Z-arts, Manchester, 8 December 2018, from £6 - Book now

We recommend booking early for this exciting collaboration as the UK’s premier bearded Muslim Drag Queen, The Nightbus, brings the critically acclaimed Drag Queen Story Time experience to Z-arts this winter.

Expect to be enthralled by all the good things – fun, inclusivity, celebrating individuality, big imaginations and an alternative view of acceptance and tolerance.

Gather round to hear the story of Nimesh the Adventurer by Ranjit Singh.  Nimesh is walking home from school. Except…there happens to be a shark in the corridor. And a dragon in the library. And why would crossing the road lead to the North Pole? Nimesh makes even the dullest journey a dazzling adventure.

In partnership with Black Gold Arts, Contact and STUN, Drag Queen Story Time aims to capture the imagination and fun of the gender fluidity of childhood, while giving children a positive queer role model.

Nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal in 2019, Nimesh The Adventurer is set to be a story beloved by young children across the land. It celebrates diversity and inclusion, revealing how the ordinary can and should be the extraordinary. Giving young readers and audiences the confidence to embrace creative play, we are up for anything that brings to life seeing magic in the world around you.

Together with pre-show arts and crafts, this brilliant alliance offers a unique opportunity to make creative and fun-filled family memories together, plus learn and talk about important issues vital to personal and societal wellbeing. We love everything about this family event and defy anyone to leave without a warm and positive glow.

£6 tickets are for 1 adult & 1 Child. Additional tickets for family members can be purchased for £3 each
