LADS

Unwrapped: a festival of comedy, cabaret and drag
Curated by Victoria Falconer

The sell-out sensation LADS comes to the Bush for the first time to bring an unforgettable showcase of unmissable, unladylike talent.

Since birthed in 2016, this show has never ceased to blast a diverse range of female identifying artists to the front; serving you a multiplicity of skills in circus, opera, puppetry and “bad-assery” from all round the globe! Created by three award winning international female artists – Lolo Brow, Lilly Snatchdragon and Scarlett O’Hora – this iconic event promises to be every bit as loud as it is diverse.

LADS welcomes all humans to stomp, shout and celebrate the badly behaved women making history.
