Man Up is back! The biggest Drag King battle in Europe! 

It’s time for the Kingdom & for the Kings to be at the forefront of London’s queer counter-culture and The Glory is on the hunt for a glorious new leader!

We are throwing down the gauntlet once again and the competition will have a full 8 week run at The Glory! Join us every Wednesday for a wild night of Kings!

Expect to be provided with show-stopping talent including performance art, comedy, song, spoken word and of course lipsyncing!

The main prize is £1000 for the winner and as always the contest is a great introduction for new talent to both the king scene and bookers from The Glory along with nights across London.

PLUS the grand final will be held at the legendary Clapham Grand on Thursday the 12th of May! 

Each week we invite performers, journalists, Man Up Alumni and celebs to judge the contest with your hosts Chiyo & Don One presiding over the proceedings.

On your marks, get set, and MAN UP!

Doors 5pm

Show 8pm sharp
