The Big Smoke Festival: ICONIC - A Brief History of Drag


A triple threat of heavenly vocals, theatrical swagger and razor-sharp wit, Velma Celli celebrates the most iconic drag moments of film, stage and popular culture direct from sell-out performances in Australia and across the UK.

Join Velma and her vivacious band for an electrifying cabaret featuring the legendary music of Queen, Bowie, Boy George, Lady Gaga, Tina Turner and more.

Velma Celli is the alter-ego of West End performer Ian Stroughair who has starred in hit shows such as Cats, Fame, Chicago and Rent, where he received critical acclaim for his portrayal of Angel.

“Velma Celli is rapidly becoming the UK’s queen of live vocal drag” Broadway World
“Powerhouse vocals… A force to be reckoned with” Gay Times
“Velma Celli’s musical extravaganza hits all the right notes” This Is Cabaret
