QWA kicks off on the evening of Thursday 21st August with Breakout, an art installation from Devi Collective, along with shows from Louise Woodcock, Robert Grundstorm, a performance collaboration with 2 Koi Karp and a film screening from Helen Shanahan. Then of course, Haus of Phag's very own The Fey is screening from 9pm.
Friday evening continues with Word Up, an hour of poetry and word play hosted by Steph Pike, followed by an hour from the Women in Comedy Festival UK, a line-up from the first and only all-female comedy festival in the country. Then the night will conclude with the club night Rapture, an all-inclusive event mixing people from all sexualities, gender identities, music tastes, shapes and sizes, ages, creeds, and religions in one fabulous melting-pot of diversity, partying and late-night madness.
On Sunday, QWA recognises we all may be a bit delicate and hopefully remedy will come in its mellow brunch club, with food for survival accompanied by chilled-out tunes to aid recovery... Before upping the ante again with their Mardi Gras Party in the evening, with Galivantes presenting a night of gypsy ska punk electroswing, plus everything else in between. And if that's not enough, bands DJembeKlan, ILL, Factory Arts and Nathan Barratt & His Mates will be performing, with further acts still to be confirmed. Mardi Gras Glam dresscode is optional, but obviously encouraged!
