Our friends at TransCreative took over Festival Square for one night in Trans Vegas

With living legend of cabaret Justin Vivian Bond performing in the Hall, Trans Vegas expanded into Festival Square with talks, even more cabaret, top secret performances and a full-blown party.

Presented by Trans Creative, the UK’s leading trans arts company, this all-day celebration of trans joy was the grand finale of their 2023 Festival.
