Priscilla - Mitzi, Bernadette and Felicia visit Basingstoke

We were lucky with the September sun today as our three leads channelled their alter-egos to say hello to shoppers in Basingstoke!

Meet Mitzi, Bernadette and Felicia…

Our three Queens of the Desert donned their colourful "I will Survive" costumes to visit Basingstoke town centre and mingle with the locals.
It took about an hour to transform Ian Moseley into Bernadette for his role in Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Watch it in all in 60 seconds!
