If you’re the sort of person who’s up for trying a ‘first time’ event, or if you’re just addicted to glitter and glamour, then you’ll be be saying, ‘drag me to lunch’ on Saturday 23 March!

The Balcony Bar & Oyster Co have teamed up with one of the most fabulous showgirls, Penny Clifford, to host Byron Bay’s first ever Drag Lunch from 1pm on the iconic balcony. 

It promises to be a fun time, with diva queens Mya Crafone and Martini Ice stepping things up to not only get social with you, but to show a little ‘drag with class’. And of course you might also enjoy a cocktail on arrival and a divine lunch to share.

Penny, one of the most celebrated glamour showgirls in Australia, made the move to the Northern Rivers a while ago.  Expect to be involved in some Drag Bingo, as well as drag performances on the day.

‘Eat glitter for breakfast and shine all day!’

More info: Sat 23 March from 1pm. $65  |  balcony.com.au.
