Penny Stamps Speaker Series presents: Alternative Miss World

Join us live from London at Shakespeare’s iconic Globe Theatre for the 50th Anniversary of Alternative Miss World, renowned sculptor Andrew Logan's celebration of transformation, creativity and beauty that goes beyond gender, age, race and sexuality. Since its humble beginnings in Logan’s London studio in 1972, and first inspired by the British dog show Crufts, the celebration has become an internationally renowned beacon of glittering light, colour and joy, attracting artists, performers, and misfits of all kinds. The event has gained celebrity status, with notable judges, co-hosts and contestants such as Divine, Leigh Bowery, David Hockney, Zandra Rhodes, Jarvis Cocker, Derek Jarman, Grayson Perry, Brian Eno and the stars of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. At its heart, as the host and hostess, Andrew Logan embodies the role of high priest of colour and joy. He shepherds his flock of colourful creatives and ingenious innovators, all gathered together in the church of artistic celebration. Over the years, influential fashion designers have helped dream-up and create the iconic outfits worn by Andrew. The male and female sides are split down the middle in each, symbolizing the ideas central to the Alternative Miss World. Performance art, pageantry, and sculpture all come crashing together for one night only, in a spectacle that must be seen to be believed.
