Timberlina and FFS!

Generation Vexed!

FFS! is a brand new glittering alt-drag, rock n roll eco-show for a vexed generation, showing at Hastings Printworks on 22 November. Ryan Ormonde writes.

For a totally refreshing take on environmental awareness, bearded drag performer Timberlina is here to say it’s okay to be angry and frustrated and ultimately helpless. In otherwise relentlessly dark times, Timberlina brings empathy, compassion and – guess what? – a little bit of optimism!

In 2009, Tim Redfern decided to leave London to seek a quieter life of subsistence in Rye, bringing his alter-ego Timberlina with him… Driving the community mini bus, running an allotment and deliberately not making a lot of money, Tim began to focus on sustainability and attempting to save the world. What this did was make him feel very virtuous but ultimately unhappy in himself…

FFS! Is the first chapter in Timberlina’s bold new mission to address the needs of what she calls ‘Generation Vexed’.

Timberlina once appeared on The Weakest Link, curated the first Queer Late at the V&A and has hosted the critically acclaimed Big Bingo Show, every Monday night for the last 10 years at London’s legendary Royal Vauxhall Tavern. She also hosted her own radio special on Resonance FM back in May.

FFS! with Timberlina: Hastings Printworks on 22 November. For tickets, go to Timberlina’s website.
