your london pride 2015 rundown is here!
Whether your looking to get patriotic, tipsy, cultured, or drop it down low? All you’ll have to do is follow the rainbow this weekend, because London Pride 2015 is about to kick off! Taking the party from the east to the west, throwing a raucous city wide celebration of drag, parades, live music, spoken word, cabaret and some of the sweatiest club nights you won’t want to miss!!!
Two Brewers: Pride Ball
It’s never to early for a ball! Take it down south and start your weekend off at Two Brewer’s Pride Ball! Opening Pride weekend with a shitload of drinks, glitter, dancing and disco. Hosted by the quick witted, camp queen Miss Jason, and accompanied by DJ Demon and DJ Chris Brogan spinning pop, chart, and cheese. Open til late.
Open from 5pm | £7 after 10pm
THE HOLE at Glory
Still cant shake that a gay bar in Clapham sounds like an STI?… then take a peak in The Glory’s (ahem) ‘Hole’. A recurring Friday night party curated by John Sizzle at cabaret superstar Jonny Woo’s club. Expect queer, anarchic, glitzy, filthy San Fran style disco for all. The music is synth, punk, riot, electro “n stuff”. Upstairs is shady pints and sexy side glances, while downstairs is a “thigh-thumping, butt-pumping, minimal lighting queer rave”… what’s not to love?!
Doors open at 9pm | £3 after 10pm
Pride in London
Got too drunk and slept thru the parade?…. no problem! Strut over the multicoloured walkway of London Bridge or hop on Barclay’s sponsored rainbow DLR. Because the centrepiece of the Pride in London celebrations takes place at Trafalgar Square. This year’s headliners include 90’s boyband BLUE, X-Factor’s beloved Rebecca Ferguson, the Pink Singers, and drag idol.
Trafalgar Square Main Stage Runs From 12:00- 8:00pm
£3.00 suggested donation
Diane Chorley: Duchess of Canvey
Squeeze in some culture and laugh your heart out at Soho Theatre, with the final show from the fabulous ‘Diane Chorley: Duchess of Canvey.’ Join Diane, former owner of Eighties’ Essex nightclub The Flick, and her band The Buffet, for a glitzy, fun-filled musical spectacular, amongst comic tales of her troubled and infamous past.
