Venue:

Coinciding with Shetland Pride 2022, The World of Fancy Boy is an exhibition of outfits, illustrations and inspirations from costume designer Fancy Boy.  It’s both a celebration of Shetland's design talent and LGBTQ+ identity and culture.

Fancy Boy is the alter ego of Harry Whitham, a born and raised Shetlander. After studying Design for Stage at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London he worked his way through London’s theatres, first as a dresser, wardrobe assistant then sewist and maker. He designs and makes bespoke costumes for some of the UK’s best loved drag queens and his work features regularly on Ru Paul’s Drag Race (BBC).

Showing during July in the Mareel Auditorium. Free Entry. 

Harry will deliver a creative workshop on Saturday 2 July from 3-4.30pm, aimed at (but not exclusively for) queer and queer-adjacent teens or anyone with an eye for drag glamour (recommended 12+).  Join Harry to create your very own wearable sequin patch. .
