One of the nation's most beloved drag queen Mentors

Alien deity, drag queen, academic and idealist – Cheddar Gorgeous is the entertaining, hilarious and breathtaking star of Channel 4’s Drag SOS and BBC’s RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.

Amplified to the mainstream through sensational TV performances, their roots grew from underground queer club culture and activism. The depth and breadth of their take on the power of drag has created their reputation as an educator of the more serious and complex dimensions of queer culture. Affectionately referred to as Dr Cheddar Gorgeous on Drag Race UK, Cheddar (aka Dr Michael Atkins) has cemented their position as one of the nation’s most beloved drag queen mentors. In this live show they return to the boards, bringing their performative take on masculinity with a full artistic vision.


Due to circumstances beyond Happy Valley Pride's control, the date for the Cheddar Gorgeous show has moved to Tuesday 23rd July (doors 7.30pm, show 8pm) at The Trades Club, Hebden Bridge. The original date was Friday 26th July.

All tickets for the original date remain valid but if you are no longer able to attend you can get a refund - please email to arrange this, please note all refund requests must be with us no later than 10th July, after this date we cannot process them. 

We have just released the final ten tickets for the new date!

Everyone with tickets for Cheddar's show will still be able to gain free entry to Kim Lana's club night, from 9.30pm, at The Trades Club on the Friday. Just show up with your ticket.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused.
