Man Up - Scotland Heat

Summerhall - Red Lecture Theatre


The world’s most exciting drag king battle, and the biggest this side of the Atlantic, is coming to Scotland!

Created by The Glory in 2014, Man Up’s annual heats are held in Spring, leading to a Grand Final with £1000 cash prize.

For the first time ever Man Up is looking all the way to Scotland for a glorious new leader.

Kings will battle it out for a place in the final in London, hosted by legends Adam All and Don One (with a budget for travel and overnight accommodation thrown in).

Kings entering have 4 minutes to impress the judges and can lip-sync, sing live, play with a band, do stand up, dance or performance... it’s a multidisciplinary tournament.

Scotland-based performers, journalists, Man Up Alumni and celebs will judge the contest with Man Up creator and London drag legend Jonny Woo and local kings Oasissy presiding over proceedings.

Get your ring-side tickets quick and support your favourite king all the way to the final!
