Featuring The Cocoa Butter Club + Bollox + Louche mag

Not only does A VERY BIG OPENING unite two of our favourite collectives – The Cocoa Butter Club and Bollox – it’s also presented with Drag Mag Louche and Colours Hoxton.

Host for the evening is the magical king from the 1950’s Beau Jangles and trans go-go group Spice Boys.

THIS PARTY IS FREE for those who may not have disposable income. However we are operating an HONESTY BOX booking system, so if you can support the And What? Queer. Arts. Festival you can choose to pay £5, £10 or £15 – depending on what you can spare. All proceeds go to feeding artists, taxi’s home and more festival madness. Please pay what you can afford! Also note, that FREE tickets guarantee entry till 2230 after which there is a door charge of £5 for those with pre-reserved tickets and £10 for people with no reservations.

Join And What? Queer Arts Festival in celebrating the launch of its fourth festival with a night of clubbing, performance, dancing, protests and sweat.

The Cocoa Butter Club brings you a fierce line-up celebrating the best in cabaret from QTIPOC. Movers, shakers and groundbreakers, expect performances of the highest degree. The Cocoa Butter Club are here to ‘Decolonise and Moisturise’. Are you ready?

After 13 years of whipping Manchester’s queer nightlife into shape, Northern clubbing powerhouse BOLLOX jumps on the Megabus to bring their queer counter-culture party to London. DJ Beardre Barlow and her cast of misfits will be treating us to a riotous night of dirtypop, sleazy rock ‘n’ roll, throbbing electroclash and poppers-fueled punk. BOLLOX are also bringing their infamous Westboro Baptist Church dance floor installation that was the talking point of 2019’s Homobloc festival. The playlist is eclectic and expect the unexpected throughout the night.

Louche, is a joyfully anarchic and independent occasional print magazine about drag and queer performance. It celebrates, interrogates, and creates a living archive of drag today and drag past. Louche will be curating our host and go-go entertainment to keep the party on its knees.

And What? The party starts from 22:00 with The Cocoa Butter Club taking to the stage before we blur into BOLLOX and a long night of dancing, protests, pop-up performances and ass quivering till the early hours.

This is a safe space for Queers and their allies, anyone acting inappropriately to performers or patrons will be asked to leave. No homophobia, no transphobia, no gender-shaming.
