The Dig For Gold Is Back On At The Glory!
Join Miss Taylor Trash as we reconvene at our spiritual home, The Glory, to find the next nugget of drag performance talent! Now in it’s fourth season, The Gold Rush is going stronger than ever birthing some the most individual and iconic drag performers – but as usual, Taylor Trash is greedy for more nuggets of Drag talent and is beginning the dig again. Join her as she embarks on the hunt for London’s stars of the future!
WHAT’S THIS ALL ABOUT!?
Each week our dazzling cast of contestants will battle it out for the chance to win an untold sum of money (we don’t find out until the finale – but last year it was £2200!), a crown and sash, a slew of paid gigs and full sponsorship bundle! Who will make it through? You (and our guest judges!) will decide.
But who could possibly help make sure that our contestants are treated with the care and dignity they deserve? None other than drag icon and legend, our Head Judge Romeo De La Cruz! With a glittering career as a legendary UK King, Boylesque superstar, dancer, community leader (@throughmelaneyes) and part of the BoiBox fam – we are delighted to have them with us weekly to help guide our contestants through the process
VOTING, JUDGES & AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION
Every person who pays entry to the Gold Rush will receive a Trash Cash dollar bill which they are invited to spend on the performer of their choice and who they want to see win the week. The contestant with the highest audience votes combined with the judges scores wins and is through to the following week!! You can also buy votes from the door downstairs on the night for £5 for 10. This is a contactless transaction.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Expect more madness! More thrills! More buffoonery and a LOT of drag! Each week our contestants will be challenged to create an act inspired by the task assigned to them. They have only one week to prepare this new act so make sure you give them all the love when the stakes are so high.

Week 2 – Sunday 17th October
Week 3 – Sunday 24th October
Week 4 – Sunday 31st October spooktacular

Every week of the Gold Rush is filmed as part of the web series “The Gold Rush”. By attending this event you consent to POSSIBLY being on camera (although the likelihood of that is quite slim as we mainly care about filming the acts participating, and not all y’all hooligans in the audience).
£10 entry per person. Money raised from the sale of Trash Cash and entry fees go to the winners jackpot. On the door tickets are not guranteed. Please sign up for the waitlist if these events sell out. These are SEATED events.
