Sophie Ellie-Bextor joins Sink the Pink for glitter-filled club night in Milton Keynes
An extravaganza of drag queens and iconic pop is set to fill the Marshall Arena with glitter when Sophie Ellis-Bextor joins forces with Sink the Pink.
Sophie is collaborating with the infamous gay club night to perform her back catalogue of hits on Saturday April 11.
Sink the Pink's drag queen troupe will be performing her videos and the organisers are hoping a "huge crowd of fabulous party people" will provide the atmosphere.
The night, called Press Play, will also feature Channel 4’s ‘Drag SOS’ star DJ Tete Bang.
Tickets are on sale now, starting from £25, visit the website for more information.
The event, billed as a musical celebration of equality, love and pride, follows Sink The Pink’s successful collaboration with Melanie C last year.
A spokesman for the organisers said: "Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s catchy mix of electro-pop and nu-disco together with her inimitable style and sense of fun drew a large following from the LGBTQ+ community, a relationship she has always supported and fully embraced.
"It’s no surprise then that she has joined up once again with Britain’s best queer-club-turned-movement, Sink The Pink, and the Marshall Arena is the perfect venue – the biggest indoor space in the region it provides a blank canvas for dazzling displays and big production."
Sink The Pink began in London in 2008 and soon became wonderfully notorious. Its colourful crowds of party-goers together with a collection of flamboyant drag queens, performers and designers helped infuse an ethos of positivity, openness and vivacity which soon lifted it to iconic status. Sink The Pink has evolved into a club-meets-cabaret show which provides the perfect accompaniment to any pop legend.
