Ru Paul Drag Race has been a mainstay on TV for 10 years now and has audiences of millions across the world. So, when the UK Ru Paul Drag Race Ambassador, The Vivienne, picked the Grand Central Hall in Liverpool for the new tour, this July,  we caught up for a chat: –

Is this your first time doing an event in Liverpool?

I’ve done a few events here in Liverpool, mainly Drag shows and Comedy Roasts which have been a huge success, but I’m ready to take my shoes to a bigger stage and Grand Central Hall is just the perfect place!

What does it mean to you to be the official Ru Paul Drag Race Ambassador?

Being the UK ambassador of RuPaul’s Drag Race is just the best thing that ever happened to me. It was the pinnacle of my career and allowed me to take Drag further in the UK, to evolve and bring it more mainstream.

What have you got planned for the show in Liverpool?

This is the biggest show I’ve done to date. With 5 other performers working with me it’s going to be huge! I’ve handpicked the best Celebrity impersonators in the UK to come and out on the biggest show Liverpool has to offer! You can see Cher, Lady Gaga, Bette Midler, Beyoncé and Dolly Parton, all under one roof! A very large beautiful roof too! All of this will be topped off by having the North East’s Queen of Comedy; Miss Rory as your host! Not forgetting my Gorgeous dancing boys, I’ve made sure they’re wearing as little clothing as possible ha-ha!

Grand in nature as well as in name, this Grade II listed architectural gem of a building has been a go-to destination for eating, drinking and sleeping in the city centre since it’s relaunch in 2018. A former Methodist church, former cinema and former home to the Liverpool Philharmonic orchestra, to name but a few of the building’s past iterations, Grand Central now houses a 47-room hotel, a bustling food bazaar and, it’s crowning glory, the 1,100 capacity Grand Central Hall.

Ryan Edwards, Operations Director of Grand Central Hall said:

“Here at the Grand Central Hall we are very excited to announce this show and the collaboration with The Vivienne. This is a show not to be missed and will become a monthly event, in the city, for all to enjoy. There are only limited tickets available so book now to avoid disappointment.”
