Introducing Simon Maxwell as Raunchy Rusty!

Let us take you on a journey down memory lane as we share the incredible story of Raunchy Rusty, a true Stoke "Queen" and a legend in her own right. 

It all began in Hanley, where a small fun pub called "The Continental Music Bar" captured the hearts of locals. This was the place to be, where you could truly let your hair down and enjoy a night of unforgettable entertainment. At the heart of it all were two incredible drag queens who stole the show with their bar performances. 

Enter our very own Raunchy Rusty, who started as a glass collector but was passionate about the songs and performances that filled the bar. Recognising her talent and love for the art, Rusty was given the opportunity to fill in when one of the queens had an unfortunate accident. And thus, a star was born. 

The response to Rusty's performance was nothing short of spectacular, leading to a permanent position as a drag queen. Over the years, Rusty became an integral part of the local drag scene, even taking over the venue when it transformed into "Mystiques" for many successful years.

Most recently, Rusty has been touring across the UK with our winter promoter, Liam Glendinning, spreading joy and laughter wherever she goes. 

Drag is an ever-evolving art form, and Rusty has witnessed the ups and downs, the triumphs and failures. With 34 years of experience under her belt, she continues to captivate audiences and prove that there's still plenty of life in the old dog yet!
