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 There’s No Business Like Show Business.

"Hello, Salem! My name is Winifred! What's yours?"
Booooooooookkkkkk. Happy Belated Halloween 👻 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 it’s only going to grow our county, not only encouraging more and more people to visit the area but driving equality & diversity forward.” @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

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 🇬🇧 Sorry I couldn’t do more but here is my part, wish I had a stage at home – one day. Dame Vera Lynn – 🎶 There’ll always be an England 🎶 xXx Miss Tess Tickle xXx

If you’re driving a car you take control of the wheel, the pedals, the gears and determine a destination. When moving forward we don’t hit reverse….. 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 💥 it’s not a race it’s a journey, it’s not a competition it’s growth xXx

If someone says you can’t, show them that you can! We as people can change minds, perceptions and even change the world. We are born to love the rest is taught. Teach love not hate! My look for the red carpet at The Attitude awards xXx

What a morning, what a week, what a bloody year! From lockdown to full steam ahead I simply don’t know what’s hit me 🤣 I’m absolutely loving life. So many new achievements, so many new memories made, but somethings are very much the same…. This beautiful human is always by my side with his hand at the base of my back, pushing me forward and supporting me in all I do ♥️ Eeee we’re like Posh & Becks 🤣 🥰 xXx

Scrub up well don’t we? ♥️ 🏳️‍🌈 🏳️‍⚧️ xXx Miss Tess Tickle xXx

4 years ago I ran the Great North Run for charity with these amazing humans!!!!! It’s damn hard and it’s not easy but we all do it because of the charity and those who need it are behind us and that means the world!!! Congratulations to all those who took part and crossed that line today and Thankyou for your efforts in raising money and awareness for masses of charities throughout the country in these difficult times ❤️👏🏻 xXx

Bank Holiday Monday, my first day back at work 🙌🏻 I’ve had the best two weeks spending some quality time with this one ❤️ Honestly he’s one in a million! The most kind, caring and supportive person you will ever meet. Not only does he come to the shows and help out, but if he’s not there he makes sure dinner is on the table for me coming home, gets up early to see to the dogs and puppies to allow me a lie in, along with supporting me implicitly! It’s total team work and I couldn’t work without him. Here’s to the next 7 weeks of shows 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Dream Team ❤️ xXx
