Meet Fonda D (the stage name of Ronan Clayton, chair of Congleton Pride). Fonda has proved herself to be a powerhouse in the drag scene, with her insane singing abilities. Performing at Congleton Pride, SandBach Pride, Alsager Pride, Radley & Co, and not forgetting her very own & extremely popular Fonda Bingo night held regularly at Rumba, Congleton. The all-singing, some dancing, minor lip-syncing self-proclaimed ‘Plus size Barbie Princess of Congleton’… that’s as cheap as Vicky Pollard.
