Countdown to Greenwich Pride this Saturday!

With delicious drinks, drag performances and even a drag race, get set to join the party at Greenwich Pride on Saturday, 20th August.

How would one celebrate pride festivities in the Royal Borough? Well, with more queens than could fill a casting call for The Crown of course! Taking over the heart of one of London’s most adorable neighbourhoods, Greenwich Pride promises to be a fantastic day of camp fun. 

Kicking off the day’s festivities will be the Michael Joyce Charity Drag Race, raising funds for the Terrence Higgins Trust, AKT, Mind and Macmillan Cancer Support. Since 2007, Drag Queens and Kings have been raising funds for charity by taking part in a foot race around the centre of Greenwich in a literal Drag Race named after its founder, the late Michael Joyce, aka Estée Applauder. 

Then from 5pm, the drinking, dancing and drag can begin! Outside Ye Olde Rose & Crown will be hosting an entire evening of entertainment from the city’s most celebrated performers. Hosted by Miss Aisles, expect hilarious one-liners, show tunes and wild skits that are sure to tickle your pickle. Expect performances from Miss Facetious, Rose Garden, Wilma Ballsdrop, Poppadom Shake, Amber Rose Turner, Saffron Slayter, Moira Less and last, but definitely not least, Ella Gant. 

If you’re still in the mood to keep the dancing going then you’ll be able to saunter over to George & Dragonf or the afterparty from 9pm – 4am. Southeast drag icon Lola Lasagne and DJ Tom Boy will be holding court right until the early hours, making sure all in attendance have a fabulous time. So whether you’re in for the whole hog or just want to stop by for a little nightcap, all you need to do is hop, skip or jump over to Blackheath Hill!

Festivities begin at 5pm, with the after-party revving up from 9pm. Ye Rose & Crown, 1 Crooms Hill, Greenwich, SE10 8ER. Nearest Station: Greenwich.
