The show will happen in the basement of The Glory which is not wheelchair accessible.

Drag King Cabaret
BOiBOX Drag King Cabaret was founded in 2013 by leading UK Drag King Adam All and his on and off stage partner, Alpha Femme, Apple Derrieres. They created a welcoming environment, a safe space , an open platform for the development, encouragement and showcasing of Drag King performers. From modest beginnings they built a Drag Show with glamour and flare, a seated cabaret experience in two halves glittering with the rising stars of the UK Drag King scene. Well known for its warm and welcoming atmosphere and its diverse, ever changing, super creative lineups, this show is the corner stone of the UK Drag King scene and the birth place of many of its major stars.
A Drag King dream that started on a shoe string in a Soho basement is now SEVEN, having spawned a sea of sensational Kings, showcasing 129 Drag Kings and producing 105 dedicated BOiBOX Drag King shows and counting... We've kicked down several doors, survived misogyny, regeneration, changes in venues, a pandemic... and we are still here and still Queer! Who ever said that Drag Kings can't, look at them DO! And we keep doing thanks to the incredible performers we work with and our amazing audiences...YOU!
So get with the Drag King Revolution and celebrate this milestone with us as we put on two super-shows to celebrate because it's the big one! It's our birthday!
