Swindon and Wiltshire Pride, which is taking place in the GWR park on Saturday 10 August, have announced that Victoria Scone will be performing at the event.

Victoria Scone (She/Her/They/Them) made history being the first person assigned female at birth to compete on Drag Race UK, on the franchise’s third series. 

They then went on to compete on Canada’s Drag Race: Canada vs The World, representing the UK, in which they made the top 4, and garnered rave reviews from fans and critics worldwide.

Victoria has since led the all-drag cast of ‘Death Drop: Back In The Habit’ on its UK Tour and West End run in 2022/23, playing Mother Superior to critical acclaim. Most recently, Victoria played the Queen of Hearts in Charming Entertainment’s Adult Panto UK Tour of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ 2024 and Carabosse in Tuckshop’s ‘Sleeping Beauty’ 2023.

Pre Drag Race, Victoria made it to the grand-final of Drag Idol UK 2018.
