Spring has sprung and beer garden weather is finally upon us.
So if you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy the weather then head to Malin Bridge Inn’s outdoor cocktail bar, where they will be kicking off summer early with the launch of their new cocktail menu and their George Michael Tribute show (Sat 2 Apr).
Also appearing at Malin Bridge Inn this month are drag residents DJ Brooke (Sat 9 Apr), with non-stop bops and the Tanya Minge Disco Diva Party (Fri 22 Apr) where she’ll be spinning the decks, dishing out the dirt and, if you’re lucky, showing off her amazing powerhouse vocals with a few songs here and there.
There’s more drag over at Picture House Social as Karma Leon’s Kabaret return for their second showing of Mischief! (Fri 1 Apr).
Karma Leon’s Kabaret is a kick-ass variety night that promotes breaking the rules and mixes dirty girl punk with the glitz and glamour of classic cabaret showcasing all the new and emerging talent within South Yorkshire – celebrating drag, burlesque, magic, circus and more!
In more drag events, the amazing Trixie Lee returns to Hagglers Corner for Drag Queen Bingo (Wed 20 Apr) and the latest batch of RuPaul’s Queens sashay their way to Sheffield for the Drag Race UK Series 2 Tour (Sat 9 Apr) at City Hall.
Also appearing at City Hall this month is Joe Lycett (the artist formerly known as Hugo Boss) for three nights for More, More, More! How Do You Lycett? How Do You Lycett? (Thu 14/Fri 15/Sat 16 Apr) and doing what he does best: talking at a room of people in a queer and comedic fashion packed with MORE jokes, MORE comedy anecdotes and MORE inappropriate and arguably disturbing paintings.
Over at Spirit of Sheffield, LGBT Sheffield’s night of old-skool hi-nrg Rockies (2 Apr) returns following their packed-out launch night and DJ Jaxter and Tia Anna are back for Club Flora (Fri 8 Apr) playing dancefloor classics and forgotten gems with live cabaret performances. In addition to their regular pre-match socials (9/15/23 Apr) Rainbow Blades, Sheffield United’s LGBT+ supporters club will be throwing a party to celebrate their 2nd Birthday with DJ Anna Kissed (Sat 16 Apr) and their new karaoke night (Thu 21 Apr) returns for the singers amongst you.
Feeling creative? Then join DDY as they make their way to DINA for their Queer Art Club (Wed 13 Apr). Poor Spice, Bambi Smith and Gnarkill also return to DINA for Cyb3r Party (Sat 9 Apr) a night of hyperpop. For more queer dance joy, check out Club Rush (Fri 1 Apr) at Gut Level with Michael Upson (Love Muscle) DJ Subaru (Pleasuremaxxx) and Rush Residents.
And last but by no means least, acoustic singer-songwriter Rhiannon Scutt (Fri 22 Apr) takes to the stage at Greystones to launch a series of three connected EPs entitled ‘Facets’ – showing the development in her powerful, emotive music since the first live solo release ‘#9’ in 2018.
