WHAT IS QUEEN BEE?
Queen Bee Leeds is an annual Drag Queen Pageant that brings the community together under one roof, for an evening of fabulous entertainment. The event raises money for local organisations that provide vital care & support. Since 2015, over £16,000 was raised by Queen Bee events.
Queen Bee would not be possible without the support & sponsorship from the following businesses and organisations.
in loving memory
The Queen Bee event was created in 2015, following the tragic suicide of Matthew-Alex Bedingfield.
It's thanks to the tremendous support from the community & our sponsors, that the event continues to grow and on December 3rd 2018 it will return for a fourth year!
last year and in honor of much loved LGBT* community ally 'Roseann Fields', Queen Bee also started to raise money for St. Gemma's Hospice as well as Yorkshire Mesmac.

Queen Bee wants to ensure that nearly all funds raised by ticket sales go towards our chosen cause. This year the ticket prices fully cover the fees levied to us by the ticket & secure payment processing provider. This also ensures that the event remains cost neutral to the people who organize Queen Bee. Our box office can accept Credit & Debit card payments as well as apple pay. Secure payment processing is provided by Squarespace & STRIPE.
As this is a charity event and refunds result in processing fees - we can not provide a cancellation or refund option. Returned single or table tickets may not be resold in time which would result in a further loss to the charity. Tickets may however be transferred - please contact us if you have any questions.
