Trans-socials

Social Events for the Transgender Community

Brandy from BrandyBs and Richard from Richard's Photography have joined forces to run social events for the trans community; whether you are an occasional crossdresser, identify as non-binary, gender-fluid or are a full-time transman or transwoman, you will find a warm welcome.

Types of Event

We run different events throughout the year at a variety of venues, including entertaining in the privacy of our own homes, meals at restaurants and trips out to events such as musicals. Some are more intimate, and some are on a larger scale.

Social Afternoons

Brandy hosts regular afternoons at her home in Tonbridge throughout the year; a light lunch and drinks are included.

Dinner Parties

Fancy a nice evening out? We run occasional dinner parties and other events at our homes in Wrotham (nr Sevenoaks) and Tonbridge.

Meals Out

We organise meals out, including at the award winning boutique hotel, The Bull Hotel, in Wortham (near Sevenoaks)

Afternoon Teas

Traditional afternoon tea is a quintesentially English custom. We organise ad hoc tea events at a variety of venue in the South East.

Ladies Day

Now an annual tradition, we organise a group outing to Ladies Day at Brighton racecourse: the perfect excuse for a nice hat!

Theatre Trips

Fancy something different? If so, join us for one of our theatre trips; we often socialise before and after too.

        Threatre Trip: the Finellis Musical

        A group outing to the theatre!
        location_on Wonderville Theatre, London access_time Sunday 16th June 2.30-4.30 pm

        Don't be sorry, be brilliant!

        The Finellis musical will be performed at the Wonderville Theatre in London for two weeks in June. The musical is based on the award-winning The Finellis Movie, which received 64 award nominations and 22 awards in 12 countries.

        One of the key characters in the plot is a transgender nightclub owner, Eva Klein. She is a confident transwoman, at ease with her own identity. Tony Finelli, played by Mark Janicello (in both the film and musical), is released from prison after serving a 15-year sentence; he returns to his former family to discover how relationships have changed. Tony struggles with who he is. Tony, a performer before his incarceration, is introduced to a business owner, Eva Klein-Gutiérrez. Tony, encouraged by his manager Jurgen, auditions for a part that involves dressing in drag. We see Tony's internal struggles with his identity laid bare: this contrasts with transgender Eva, who has worked through her struggles. Eva recounts how her dream had become a reality. 'Don't be sorry, be brilliant,' says Eva. This scene alone is worth watching the movie for anyone struggling with their identity (trans-related or otherwise).

        Date &Time

        We are organising a trip to see the musical for the final performance of the two-week run on Sunday 16th June at 2.30 pm.

        Cost

        We have been able to source tickets at a reduced price. The normal ticket price is £26.50 plus a £1.50 booking fee (total £28 per ticket). We have ten tickets available at £18 each on a first-come, first-served basis.

        The Plan

        For those that wish to do so, a small group will meet at Richard's house in Wortham, Kent and then travel up to Charing Cross railway station by train.

        We are planning meeting for a meal before the musical and staying for drinks afterwards. People are welcome to join us for one or both or just come along to the theatre.

        The meal and travel are not included in the ticket cost.
