A renowned Great Yarmouth venue is to host its first ever drag event tonight.
The Empire in Great Yarmouth, which has recently relaunched as a live event venue, will welcome Norfolk drag show producers On The Huh as they perform a Halloween themed drag show called The Cats Meow.
The evening will be hosted by Norfolk drag couple Bishy Barnabee and Anna Action, with the duo known for events across the county.
Bishy Barnabee, real name Brandon Chaskin, grew up in Gorleston and is excited to bring this type of event to Great Yarmouth.
The drag queen said: “We're so excited to be performing in the town and giving lots of people a taste of what drag can be.
"We are hoping this will be a regular event going forwards.”
Along with the main hosts of the show there will also be other local drag favourites such as Will Power, Knuckle Sandwich, Dolores DT and Zoe Promiscuous.
