STARS of Netflix’s I Like to Watch are coming to Bournemouth this week as they embark on a tour of the UK.

The show, fit with a touring motorhome, will call at DYMK on Thursday, September 16.

The venue will be given a living room-style makeover set to immerse attendees and bring them closer to the action.

Hosting the show will be Cheryl Hole and Tia Kofi, as well as an array of local queens and special guests.

The tour will be kicking off in London and the motorhome will be parked-up to give fans drag makeovers, before it hits the road, visiting Margate, Bournemouth, Nottingham, Glasgow and Swansea, before a final stop in Hull on October 20th.

Fans will get up close and personal with the queens, watching and critiquing films including Pitch Perfect, Netflix’s Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga and He’s All That in their own unique style.

After a year in which venues and drag artists saw their industry struggle tremendously with work disappearing overnight due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the I Like To Watch tour is an opportunity to celebrate and support LGBT+ performers and the venues which act as a vital resource for the community.

The Vivienne said: “I'm so excited to be taking I Like To Watch on the road.

“We've all had a shocker over the last year or so, and queens and LGBT+ venues have really struggled. I've made a career working in bars all over the UK, so I know how vital they are to our community.

“We want to give everybody a camp time, but fingers crossed our tour can help local scenes as they start to find their feet again."
