Girls are being asked to dress up as boys in Britain's biggest drag king battle, which starts tonight at The Glory.

Over the course of six heats hosted by compere Jonny Woo every Wednesday, leading up to a grand final on June 15, guest judges will decide who will take away the £1,000 cash prize.

Last year’s contest showcased John Smith, Shesus and The Sistas, Franike Sinatra and the Glory’s bartender Gusher, all of whom have enjoyed regular bookings since.

The show is free to enter and free to watch, and starts at 8pm at The Glory, 281 Kingsland Road, Haggerston.
