It’s the final heat tonight.. as kings seize their last chance to get into the major grand final at EartH in Daston. Man UP  is the biggest DRAG KING battle in the world, MAN UP! returns to The Glory. Through March and April, The Glory is looking to crown London’s new Drag King.

All gender identities are welcome as the feminine gives way to all things MASC. Politics, parody, pastiche and rubber penises. Lipsync, live, performance art, stand-up. All talents welcome for our contestants who will be battling for the coveted £1000 grand prize.

From March 6th, each heat is presided once again by the unstoppable duo, producer and anarchic host Baby Lame and London’s leading King, BoiBox’s Adam All.

The Kings will be judges by a panel of leading performers, journalists, producers and scene celebrities, who will choose one or more Kings to go through to the grand final on 18th April.

There are 5 heats, every Wednesday from March 6th. Each King has 4 minutes to prove their worth and win themselves a place in the grand final.
