ONE of the Canary Islands' most popular shows makes a one-night-only appearance in Essex when it arrives in Clacton next week.

The Music Hall Tavern drag review is billed as the "funniest night out of the year" has been playing for more than two decades.

The side-splitting show, which boasts lavishly dazzling costumes, is one of the hottest tickets in town with more than 120,000 Brit holidaymakers a year paying to see performances.

It features the Showcase International Dancers along with live singing, comedy sketches and the music of Take That, Abba, Freddie Mercury and Riverdance.

The 'girls' are playing 24 venues across the UK before ending their run in London’s West End later this month.

Show founder and producer Paul Carroll said: “It’s a real feel-good show that entertains people of all ages and leaves them wanting more.

“I have been overwhelmed by the support we have had both in the Canary Islands and in the UK.

“I really can’t wait for the opening night again, it’s the biggest show we have performed and will certainly have the wow factor like never before.”

Music Hall Tavern is at the West Cliff Theatre on November 17 at 7.30pm. Tickets are £23 (£21 over-60s) on 01255 433344.
