You’re invited to a drag show at the Rising Sun Arts Centre, hosted by the local Reading legend in suspenders themself, Sheer Obsession.

Due to Covid restrictions, the Rising Sun is working at a limited capacity of 30 people in the building at any one time, so for this reason we are launching this event to a VIP crowd of VERY limited numbers. The night will be seated at cabaret style tables, and the bar will be open. The event will take place indoors.


Zero Tolerance Policy

All genders, expressions, sexualities are welcome.

Please don’t assume people’s pronouns or gender.

Respect everyone’s personal space - this includes volunteers, staff, audience members and performers!

The Rising Sun is currently fundraising for ventilation in order to return to full capacity - please consider donating here: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/rising-sun-arts-centre



The downstairs of the Rising Sun Arts Centre where this event is held is wheelchair accessible. There is a disabled access toilet on the ground floor, and the bar area is also wheelchair accessible. 

This event will be seated, but please feel free to get up and stretch or move around when you need to.

There is a space upstairs (not wheelchair accessible) if you need a break out space - please talk to a volunteer on the night if you need this. There is a car park space outside that can also be used as a break out space.

For any questions or further access needs, please email Ollie at ollie.musson@risingsunartscentre.org with S.O.S in the subject.

We ask that you take lateral flow tests before you attend to ensure a negative result. We will not be asking for evidence of negative tests, but we want to be clear that we expect our community to look after each other.

We recommend that you wear masks inside the building unless seated. 

Please as always respect people’s personal space, and allow room for people to social distance should they wish to.
