WORDS KATIE HALL
Frankie Sinatra’s drag king night Kings of Clubs has become a well-established must-attend cabaret night on the scene.
Borne from inspiration at the emergence of drag king talent, Frankie has created a welcome, inclusive event that showcases the best of the acts from around the world, old and new.
Starting with banging queer favourite tunes from Stav B, Frankie then steps suavely onto the stage to offer a warm welcome to the acts and audience alike.
Three open mic slots share the first Act and allow new performers or Kings, Prinxs or Things to try out new routines.
Frankie’s final hurrah to send us off reprised all nine acts on stage, before Stav B was charged with filling the venue with upbeat tunes on the decks. What fantastic value for money and an uplifting evening of entertainment and fun highlighting the expanding drag king talent from London and beyond.
