Up at The O2 has today announced the launch of an all-new event series, ‘Drag Up at The O2’ which will make your September sparkle. Drag Up at The O2 is the first ever series of drag performances to take place on top of the world’s number one music, entertainment and leisure venue. A pretty cool idea if we don’t say so ourselves.
The popular outdoor attraction has teamed up with the gorgeous drag queen Herr to host the series, during which she will perform an unmissable interactive act, against a backdrop of 360-degree, panoramic views of the capital.
Who is Herr? She’s the Winner of the Not Another Drag Competition: All Stars. Herr is widely known for slaying the drag circuit as a pop culture queen, starring in a Girls Aloud tribute band, Gals Aloud, and hosting her very own Amy Winehouse tribute evenings.
Visitors will experience a thrilling climb up to the roof of The O2, where they can sip on a glass of Champagne Lanson at the summit whilst enjoying Herr’s performance, before embarking on their descent to Base Camp. Better get practising lip-syncing or Sashay Away.
Onin.London sent along Ty Best to the event and he states “It was a fabulous event, didn’t know what to expect and yet it still exceeded any expectations! And as cheesy as it sounds they definitely took drag to a new height. All the up at the O2 staff were so warm and welcoming! Herr was amazing, talented, hilarious and glamorous all in equal measure!”
The events will take place at 7pm and 7.30pm on Thursday 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd September with tickets priced at £40 per person. Tickets are available now on O2 Priority and will go on general sale on Friday 6 August at 9am. Each ticket includes an outdoor climb led by one of Up at The O2’s expert guides, who are on hand to provide interesting facts and local knowledge. Climbers will also receive a complimentary glass of Champagne Lanson at the summit as well as extended time on the roof to enjoy a first-of-its-kind drag performance. Soft drinks also available.
The O2 is the world’s number one music, entertainment and leisure venue and is just 15 minutes from central London. Home to Icon Outlet, which offers over 60 superstar fashion and lifestyle brands with up to 70% off all year round, there are also over 30 bars and restaurants to choose from on your visit. The O2 is the ultimate day out destination with activities including Hollywood Bowl, Cineworld, Oxygen Freejumping trampoline park, and TOCA Social – a new interactive football and dining experience opening this summer.
