Girl.Boy.Child.

Following a sell-out performance in London, renowned singer songwriter David McAlmont brings his unique show to Kingston Lacy for an exclusive performance at the home William John Bankes, whose story inspired his work.

  • Booking essential

Described as a “poignant queer tale for our times”, girl.boy.child is a mesmerising blend of history, song and image that explores the lives of three people who challenged the conventions of sexuality and gender of their day: Christopher St John, William John Bankes and Henry Cyril Paget.

The performance will bring to life extraordinary tales of these three pioneers and their deep connections to the places they created and inhabited.

Welcome drinks from 6.30pm, performance starts 7pm.
