Dukes and Countesses, Earls and Baronesses, Kings and Queens and all the drag in between (and beyond)… Grab your diamonds and tiaras and come along to ROYAL TRASH for a night of pompous debauchery! 

For your exclusive amusement, we unveil our cabinets of curiosities and offer you a spectacle of high class divertissement: expect haute couture fantasies, aristocratic mannerisms and vulgarities, subversive gender-bending telenovelas, exercises in (un)Britishness, beauty pageants and drama queens, voguing sessions, Trans-Coronations and a dethroning of the great white male… With guest of honour ‘Un-Royal Variety’ star Jonny Woo!
