A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

...actually, scratch that.

This month at The Station Hotel in Gloucester, eight up-and-coming drag artists will battle it out to be named Gloucestershire's Next Drag Superstar... this is DRAG WARS 2016!!

Drag Race 2015 runner-up Pandora LaRoux and Gloucestershire's current reigning drag superstar Misty Monique will be your hostesses with the mostesses, introducing the contestants and keeping you entertained throughout the evening!

Each queen will be tested on a variety of aspects of drag performance including lip-syncing, live vocals, comedy and audience participation.

The judges for the qualifying heat are Station landlord Norman Ferguson, two of Gloucestershire's most-loved queens Monica Tension and Ruby Slippers, and our head judge, queen of Gloucestershire Pride and Drag Idol finalist, The Baroness Peaches!

Buy a drink at the bar and you will be given a voting slip to throw your support behind your favourite queen! The audience vote and the judges scores will be combined and by the end of the evening just three queens will be left standing, going through to the final on September 10th where one will be crowned Gloucestershire's Next Drag Superstar!

The winner of Drag Wars 2016 will receive a cash prize of £100, a performance slot at Gloucestershire Pride 2017, the chance to perform with one of the UK's biggest drag stars, the fabulous Miss Penny, plus they will be automatically booked to perform their very own full-length solo drag show at The Station Hotel!

As always this is a FREE event... don't miss it!!
