Jamie campbell

We were very pleased to be part of this year's superb Off The Shelf programme, Sheffield's book festival taking place across the city from 6-27 October. In a continued collaboration with Off the Shelf, Sheffield Doc/Fest presented a talk with Jamie Campbell - the subject of the popular BBC Three documentary, Jamie: Drag Queen at 16, made by Firecracker Films.

The documentary became the inspiration for the award winning musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie which premiered at Sheffield Theatres, went on to become a mash hit in the West End, and is now being made into a feature film by Sheffield’s Warp Films.

Jamie discussed his extraordinary story so far, the making of the documentray, his future plans and some of the books that have inspired him.
