MAN UP! 2020: The Grand Final is finally here.

After 8 weeks with over 100 of London and the UK’s finest Drag Kings, The Glory brings the final of its groundbreaking competition MAN UP! to our amphitheatre-style theatre. 

The event a fantastic opportunity for the emerging queer artists to present themselves and their shows to a huge audience on a huge stage fit for a King!

This is a night that will go down in queer nightlife history. Lip-synching, live, stripping, binding, politicising: it all happens at MAN UP!, and it’s right here that the best of London’s King talent is showcased.

Judges from entertainment, journalism and of course the King scene, will cast their eye over these swaggering princes and choose the winner of the coveted crown and £1000 cash prize!

Your hosts for the night are the king of kings, Adam All and Don One, plus The Glory’s own Jonny Woo and John Sizzle will both be in attendance to help choose the new reigning King!

Our food pop-up, Shuk, will be open in EartH Kitchen from 18:00 to 21:30. Dishes focus on super fresh stuffed pitas and spicy skin-on fries inspired by chef Mark Jankel’s childhood memories of Tel Aviv’s vibrant, multicultural food markets. For more information on Shuk and the full menu, check out EartH Kitchen’s venue page. No booking required; walk-ins only.

This event is for over 18s only. No refunds will be issued for under 18s.
