Top of the Slops, the UK’s first paid drag competition, reaches its titillating climax celebrating all things messy, strange, and unique.

A selection of drag kings, things, and queens fighting to be crowned the sloppiest of the lot, all hosted by sloppy royalty Vanilla Parker Balls.

Beginning 21 September, eight new drag artists will be competing weekly at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club. Contestants will tackle a variety of challenges, working together and separately to create new work, judged weekly by drag king legend Shardeazy Afrodeziak, and guests, hosted by Vanilla Parker Balls. This competition is the ultimate antidote to boredom. Who will join past winners Cabbage the Clown and T33n_Angst in the Sloppy Hall of Fame?

Top of the Slops Season 3 will be taking place at the Bethnal Green Working Men's Club on Thursdays. Heats are on 21 & 28 September, and the competition dates are: 5, 12, 26 October, 2, 9, 16 November. Season 3 will then culminate in a sloppy final on the grand stage of the Assembly Hall at Shoreditch Town Hall.

To take part, please email for an application form. Deadline: Wednesday 16 August.

Please note, there will be a combination of cabaret style seating and standing. Tickets are all unallocated and seating is provided on a first come first served basis.
