It’s the season of charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent.
We’re all in desperate need of a little Eleganza Extravaganza after living in our PJs for six months, and there’s no better excuse than a reunion with our friends. Providing the backdrop to what’s sure to be an epic summer, some of the UK’s biggest and best drag queens are set to sashay into town this summer, with a number of extra sassy events in store. From drive-in drag shows to four hours of bubbles and brunch with a side of gags, here’s our guide to some of the best drag shows happening this summer.
Featuring stars of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, Drive Time Drag is taking place this weekend – with a whole lot of post-lockdown fun in store. Baga Chipz, Ginny Lemon, Divina de Campo and more will take to the stage with hilarious sets, alongside live DJs who’ll be getting the party started before the drag fun begins. If that wasn’t all, there’ll also be a fab food market to enjoy, too, to keep you fuelled up for the Drag Race antics. The event is in the style of a drive-in, so guests will be able to social distance throughout. Get tickets here.
