"All of the drag queens did an amazing job. The Orange Box Choir opened up the evening in true style, followed by Dame Shirley Bazzey who was the mistress of ceremonies. DJ Steve Lewis from Manchester held the entire evening together. Mindy and Peggy performed a full drag cabaret show and Callum Butterworth sang during the interval," said event organiser Craig Smith.

As well as the performances, there was a pie and peas supper, charity raffle and auction. Prizes included a gin hamper and car repair vouchers for Halifax Panel Craft.

"I personally want to thank everyone who helped make the night a success. The event would not have been possible without everyone who kindly gave up their free time to help out," said Mr Smith.
