The August Bank Holiday Hurst Street Drag Race event has been cancelled.


The Saturday the 29th get-together in Birmingham’s Gay Village has been axed due to the recent rise in Covid-19 cases in the city. 

Commenting on the decision, Southside Birmingham BID Manager Julia Robinson said: "We’re so sorry, it's just best we all stay safe and seated where we can. Physical exertion is not recommended at this time.”


The brainchild of drag artists Matthew Stephens, who performs as Blanche, and Matt Spencer, who's better known as Miss Penny, the event was being supported by many of Birmingham’s best-known drag queens and kings, including Gavina, Yshee Black, Pork Pie, Black Peppa, Dahlia Rivers, Pam Catz.
