Thursday 17th March: Drag King Panel – Punctum Space, Chelsea

Saturday 19th March: Punctum’s Drag Spring Ball, Banqueting Hall, 6pm – Midnight (UPDATE: With regret, the Drag Spring Ball has been CANCELLED)

This week-long drag festival is a student revolution that aims to be utterly fabulous; to queer the heteronormative arena of Pimlico where Kings, Queens, Divas, Bears, lesbians, bisexuals, asexuals, queers, curious people and all those without a label unite to discuss drag and gender identity in an open forum.

Split between the opulent riverside view of the Banqueting Hall and the underground vibe of the Punctum gallery, this glitter-festooned programme of creative events is not to be missed and a week-long exhibition with world renowned artists dedicated to drag in the Punctum Gallery.

The first drag panel, “Drag Queens“, will be launched by Turner Prize-winning artist and Chancellor of UAL Grayson Perry on Wednesday 16 March. The panel will also include Brian Dawn Chalkley, Jacob Bird, Amrou: Glamrou and Brian Britton.

This will be followed by a special Drag King panel on 17 March and Drag Cabaret on the 18 March, both in the Punctum Gallery. Attendance for these events is free.

The festival will climax with the party of the century: Punctum’s Drag Spring Ball on Saturday 19 March from 6pm to Midnight. Whilst being overlooked by MI6, decadence and joy will reign as the sponsored alcohol flows.  Performances will come from a line up of some of the best know drag acts in London, including the hit sensation Denim and the remarkable drag king band Boyz, with Haus of Sequana.
