Golden Handbags to celebrate 21st birthday in style.
Voting in the Golden Handbags 2017 closes at midnight on Monday, May 29. The results and winners for what is the most glamorous evening on the LGBT+ community calendar, will be announced at The Golden Handbag Awards in the Oxford Suite at the Hilton Brighton Metropole on Sunday, June 11 starting at 7.30pm sharp.
Who will win the special community awards? Who will win best bar and which DJ will be voted top of the charts? Will anyone be recognised with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2017?
This year the show will be opened by Maisie Trollette now approaching the 84th year of her reign. Maisie opened the very first Golden Handbag Show, 21 years ago at the Brighton Dome along with the much missed Phil Starr, Dockyard Doris and the original Tiller Girls.
Maisie will be joined on the bill by the comic genius that is Myra DuBois, cross her and you will be sorry; the girl with the BIG voice Gabriella Parrish and the glamorous and very talented Kara Van-Park.
A record number of awards will be presented this year in what is shaping up to be the closest vote on record. The awards will be hosted by the entertainer with the sharpest tongue and quickest wit on the drag circuit, the indefatigable Lola Lasagne.
All VIP tables have sold out. There are a few non-reserved tickets (£20) still available on the public tables available from Prowler at 112-113 St James’ Street, Brighton.
Prowler don’t charge a booking fee so you will have to pay cash in person in the shop to obtain your tickets.
