WELCOME TO DRAG-OPTICON!
Drag-Opticon is a sell-out monthly live drag show taking place on the first Friday of the month featuring the iconic if not dysfunctional power couple, the award winning hostess with the mostest Alana Duvey and the apocalypse queen Dharma Geddon plus friends. With a different lineup of local entertainers every month expect a lip sync extravaganza, gag-worthy live singing and a whole host of other tricks of the trade to slay you to the gods in a stunning theatre style setting.
Drag-Opticon contributes to the conservation of the World's oldest surviving Music Hall, the Britannia Panopticon, Glasgow where the event takes place. This is a seated event and a safe, welcoming space for all with a licensed bar. The venue can get very chilly on cold nights so please wrap up warm.
