Alternative Queen of Reading

The Alternative Queen of Reading contest on Friday, March 8, is in support of Berkshire Women’s Aid
Friday 8 March fund-raiser for Berkshire Womens Aid
Are you an Alternative Queen?

Sick of being judged by your looks? Got what it takes to impress a roomful of people with nothing but the sheer size of your talent, personality or even ego? Then sign up for your chance to be crowned the Alternative Queen of Reading!

On March 8 2013, Shehnai will play host to a celebration of all that is different. The event organisers say they welcome all acts and talents – all they ask is that you do something related to the theme of, you’ve guessed it, women – “Wild and Wonderful Women” to be precise. It doesn’t have to be PG-rated but we do ask that it’s respectful – after all, it’s meant to celebrate, not denigrate…

And yes, they know March 8 is International Women’s Day – but Alternative Queen of Reading is open to EVERYbody – male, female, trans, straight, gay, bi, etc. So long as you’re happy to stand in front of an audience, then they want to hear from you!

This year’s event will be hosted in association with Zuloo Productions, and held at the Olympia Ballroom at Shehnai, the largest banqueting suite in Berkshire. As well as being an exclusive wedding venue it also plays host to a variety of entertainment events, including the monthly Comedy and Curry, and an annual celebration of International Women’s Day. The venue is accessible for wheelchairs.

Address: 75-77 London Street, Reading, Berkshire, RG1 4QA

Tickets are £5 with all profits going to Berkshire Women’s Aid
