London - drag queen shows?

Looking for a place to see a good drag cabaret-style show in London. (We'll be there around the 3rd week of September if that makes any difference.)

TIA

TTT

Wish I could help but the only places I know/hang out in in London have a very butch clientele.

Perhaps someone else will see this and offer a suggestion.

hi, artemis,

your best bet is to look at the pages of Time Out London and see what you can find. Also have a look in the lonely planet guide or rough guide to london.

good lukc with your researches,

regards, ann

When you visit my overly-equipped dungeon I'll let you decide whether I'm a "queen" or not.

And I thought Fodor's was the one place in the world I could get away from CBT and leather talk.

Select gay/lesbian at www.timeout.com/london then trawl through the pub descriptions.

The Black Cap in Camden Town certainly has regular drag acts

Yes it is....

www.madamejojos.com

I'm not sure what you're after but Madame Jo Jos attracts a mixed audience (lots of hen parties). It's also very expensive.

There's a pub called Molly Moggs in Cambridge Circus that has drag queen acts on - and it's free.

Audere - straight but not narrow.

Yes, I had visited the Madame JoJo's site, and the description of their Saturday night Kitch Cabaret sounded a little too much -- we don't want dinner and dancing, just a good drag act.

I thought that there might be clubs that do drag shows regularly, but yes, checking online for one-off shows is probably the best idea.

Thx.

The shows at the Molly Mogg have always made me laugh. It's just the other end of old Compton St from Madame Jo Jos (the pub has a mixed clientele)

Try the George and Dragon in Deptford, S.E. London (www.georgedragon.com). It's further out than the Old Compton scene, but they have drag shows Friday and Saturday nights. Have fun!

Anything with Dave Lynn in it is usually pretty good. I used to love Dockyard Doris though!!
