Ghetto Fabulous
Family Catwalk Extravaganza
Weston Park Museum, Western Bank, Sheffield, S10 2TP

Presented by Ghetto Fabulous as part of the Mini Migration Matters Festival.

Please note this event is taking place at Weston Park Museum – Western Bank, Weston Park Museum, Mushroom Lane, Sheffield S10 2TP.

And the category is… family friendly! Family Catwalk Extravaganza inspired by Black Queer Joy features us, the dancers and performers from Ghetto Fabulous who originate from Manchester, Huddersfield and Liverpool. The North of England has a vibrant vogueing community which we are part of but continue to expand to the next level.

In our show, we promote equality and diversity through Black-led LGBTQ+ arts activities competing to be crowned as the audience’s chosen winner in a series of challenges. It’s an outright celebration of fashion, music, dance, individuality, aspiration and creativity.

Hosted by Stuart, the audience are treated to fashion, dance and lip sync battles and given the chance to vote for their favourite in each category by making as much noise as possible. With an emphasis on self-expression and celebrating diversity, it’s a space for gay, trans, gender non-conforming and questioning young people plus their friends and families to see positive, celebratory representations of themselves. It is also an eye opening and magical experience for everyone to explore different identities and ways of being outside of the mainstream, through movement, dance and costume. The soundtrack is an electric mix of R&B, disco, pop, and hip hop

About the company

Ghetto Fabulous is a DJ and dance collective of QTIPOC creatives based in Manchester (Queer, Trans, Bi, Intersex, People of Colour). There’s Darnell Gledhill and Darren Pritchard, that’s us! Then there’s Fortune Jordan, Xavier Thomas, Kaan Sari and compere Stuart Boden.


We do catwalk extravaganzas, cabaret, club performances and more, all based on queer black joy. The collective are all different ages so have very different experiences of growing up QTIPOC. The name Ghetto represents the working class community and Fabulous because that’s exactly what we are!


What’s more, we’ve toured across the UK extensively. We’ve been hosted by Battersea Arts Centre, Hull Truck Company, Cambridge Junction, Happy Valley Pride in Hebden Bridge and Manchester’s Contact Theatre. Recently we performed at Euro Party 2023 in Liverpool accompanying this year’s Eurovision.

Here at The Monty, we want everyone to be able to come and see our shows! We pick them because we love them and we want you to love them as well! Read below to find out all about our PWYD scheme!

🎟️What is Pay What You Decide (PWYD)?🎟️

In lots of ways, it’s exactly what it sounds like! We want audience members to be able to choose what suits their budget for the shows that The Monty brings to the theatre. Our accessible Pay What You Decide scheme aims to ensure that the magic of performance is available to all, regardless of income. At the heart of our mission is inclusivity, and we believe everyone should have the opportunity to experience the arts and one of the ways we do this is with an inclusive ticketing initiative.

🌟 How Does it Work?🌟

At the ticket selection page on the website, for shows that are eligible, you will be given the following options:

£3 Tickets: Tailored for those currently unemployed or reliant on benefits, because we understand that daily needs come first.

£5 Tickets: Striking a balance for those with moderate or unpredictable incomes. If you fall within the low to mid-range of earnings and want to support the arts.

£7 Tickets: Geared towards those seeking a middle ground in terms of income. By selecting this option, you contribute to sustaining the arts while enjoying an accessible ticket price. If you find yourself comfortably situated between moderate and higher incomes, this option is designed with you in mind.

£9 Tickets: Designed for higher earners or those who would like ‘Pay it forward’, we acknowledge your support in making the arts accessible to everyone.

We also offer free tickets to Sanctuary Seekers through our Youth Theatre of Sanctuary. If you are a Sanctuary Seeker please get in touch with and we can help you find the right tickets for you and your family.

🌞Won’t I Be Treated Differently for Picking a Cheaper Ticket?🌞

Absolutely not! No one is going to check, ask, mention or even acknowledge what kind of ticket you have bought, that’s not the point of the scheme. Our aim is to make sure you can get to see our shows regardless of any personal financial circumstance. All we care about is that if you book a ticket that you definitely use it so as many people as possible get to see our shows!

Join us in creating a space where art is not limited by financial barriers. Your choice, your experience – the power is in your hands. Let’s redefine the way we enjoy performances together.

🎉What’s not to love? An affordable theatre ticket and you get to be part of a more inclusive cultural community! Winner!🎉
