Queen's House
Evenings and Lates

Part-museum late, part-drag cabaret – this wonderfully immersive event will be a memorable night for all.    

Enjoy an evening of gender-diverse performances by London’s leading drag artists and dancers as we celebrate all kinds of queer power in the Queen’s House. Nigerian goddess Son of a Tutu will be gracing us with her glamour, humour and biting wit – joined by poster girl Scarlet O’Hora and drag king Adam All. Acclaimed Voguing dancer and international superstar DivaD Miyake-Mugler will be showcasing her snapshot poses on the runway, bringing us an authentic taste of the underground queer ballroom scene in Europe.  

There’s plenty to do – sip a free tot of rum and wander around galleries filled with divine portraits and epic naval narratives. Join us in the Bridge Room, located symbolically between the King and Queen’s wings, where we’ll be (un)doing gender in a Judith Butler-inspired dress-up bonanza. Then retire to the Heart Chamber to unwind with some LGBTQ+ poetry with Dean Atta and a queer meditation session led by Takeshi Matsumoto. You can also gather in our pop-up bar to play games, make new friends and challenge each other’s craft-making skills!

Help us to create a memorable and exciting night by bringing together all of London’s diverse bodies of power.
