Oxford-based drag darling, compére extraordinaire and mother of the Oxford Drag scene, Ginger is a dynamic force to be reckoned with.
This must-see performer has been tearing up the cabaret scene for nearly 4 years, from her silly and surreal acts to her queer and boundary-breaking events.
Serving her own brand of camp ridiculousness, it’s always a party with Ginger Tart. She’s been making a splash on the UK scene since 2015. Whether she’s being regurgitated by a shark or stripping as a cruciferous vegetable, she oozes kitsch and comic value out of her every pore. Based in Oxford, UK, she serves wild and wacky routines with sensational kooky costumes and a face that’s more dexterous than a Russian gymnast.
Best known for producing and hosting the infamous OxPHWOARd, a drag and burlesque night showcasing the queer, camp, and eclectic, she is a staple of the Oxford cabaret scene.
She has mentored many on the cabaret circuit and has recently founded the Oxfordshire Drag Collective, a home for all aspiring drag creatures in Oxford.
