BACKSTAGE

So much of our show and sometimes some of the best parts of the show happen backstage, on this page you will find pictures and videos that capture Miss Tess Tickle and The Dragettes in their true light having fun and showing Thereโ€™s No Business Like Show Business.

Are we really going to let this Number 10 party go? No chance! Last Xmas was a misery . Listening to him standing up there telling us what we couldnโ€™t do. Families not seeing each other , loved ones dying alone. Whilst him and his cronies party in a tax payer funded residence !

Wonderful evening from @miss_tesstickle and her Draggetts who also generously support our local #Ferryhill Banner Group, #wonderfullpeople #localheritage https://t.co/y1bUbZtYrJ

Fabulous support from @miss_tesstickle and her draggetts for our Miners Banners @DurhamGala @DurhamMiners @RedhillsDurham

Remember @BorisJohnson an unvaccinated nurse saved your life in 2020 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป I applauded their courage then and I applaud their courage now! xXx #nhs #carers #covid #choice #vaccine

"Hello, Salem! My name is Winifred! What's yours?"
Booooooooookkkkkk. Happy Belated Halloween ๐Ÿ‘ป xXx Miss Tess Tickle xXx #HocusPocus #drag #winifredsanderson

Had the most amazing night @ParkmoreH being thoroughly entertained by @miss_tesstickle and her dragettes!!!! Never seen my husband so nervous!!!! Already looking to book again….my face still hurts from laughing #dragqueens #Entertainment

"If we can showcase what we do here itโ€™s only going to grow our county, not only encouraging more and more people to visit the area but driving equality & diversity forward.โ€ @miss_tesstickle explains why she is backing our bid @narc_magazine: https://t.co/QDPecYh6Sm #Durham2025

We are so excited to be planning for Durham Pride 2021 on the Sands Field in Durham City – this one feels so special after the year we've all had! Covid-19 safety measures will still be in place & its TICKETS ONLY. Amazingly last few VIP tickets left before sell out – Please RT

Happy Pride Month ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ xXx https://vm.tiktok.com/E9u4BM/

Yesterday we sent this letter to 50 MPs (along with a Dreamboys Calendar – you're welcome). We are calling for a sector-specific plan for the night-time economy and a clear Lockdown Release Timeline @wearethentia @HospoUnion @DowneyJD #TheBigFreeze #NationalTimeOut @RishiSunak

We need immediate action to support theatres, nightclubs, bars & music venues otherwise we will be faced with financial collapse, empty properties, soulless city centres & the evaporation of British nightlife. RT: Support the #NationalTimeOut campaign @HospoUnion @DowneyJD

Happy VE Day everyone. A shared moment of celebration – 75th Anniversary ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Sorry I couldnโ€™t do more but here is my part, wish I had a stage at home – one day. Dame Vera Lynn – ๐ŸŽถ Thereโ€™ll always be an England ๐ŸŽถ xXx Miss Tess Tickle xXx

As I open my eyes to a New Year I realise I open my eyes luckily to a new day every time I wake. I wonโ€™t be making a one off resolution just because, what I will do is make every waking day count! Wishing you all the very best for the New Year ahead and hereโ€™s to a happy 365 days – weโ€™re lucky enough to get them so smash each and everyone of them โ™ฅ๏ธ xXx

Once upon a time in the 1900โ€™s couples stayed together because they wanted too, they wanted to work hard at their relationship because they knew deep down that this person was for them, they remembered all of the memories they made, shared and milestones they achieved and hardships they conquered together. A relationship worth fighting for! Itโ€™s almost 2022 where most of us have 5,000+ social media followers liking our pictures, writing nice comments. When life gets tough we can log on to any social app and get the attention we crave so much from so many by creating a post to for fill our needs with what we may think is lacking. These comments and messages from others is simply amazing but lacks the depth, the warmth and the love of someone who seeโ€™s you for who you really are – unfiltered๏ฟผ! Donโ€™t loose grip of reality for something at appears to be. Hold those who really love you close, donโ€™t hold grudges and just love – My point being if you have people in your life, whether that be a partner, a friend or a loved one, donโ€™t look elsewhere remember they want to be there, work hard to keep them there. Iโ€™ve always been a 1900โ€™s girl. May you love hard and live fast – stay safe and see you all on the other side. If 2021 taught me anything itโ€™s whoโ€™s in my 2022. Happy New Year โ™ฅ๏ธ xXx Miss Tess Tickle xXx

If youโ€™re driving a car you take control of the wheel, the pedals, the gears and determine a destination. When moving forward we donโ€™t hit reverseโ€ฆ.. Taking control in life is very much the same – Know your destination, choose your own speed, whilst driving you and others forward. Some were born to be driven, some were born to drive! Pick your destination and those you ride with carefully and ride together ๐Ÿ’ฅ itโ€™s not a race itโ€™s a journey, itโ€™s not a competition itโ€™s growth xXx
