THE AMBIENCE

 

Once inside, the captivating atmosphere of our cabaret entertainment venues will surround you. The dimly lit room, adorned with opulent decorations, sets the stage for a night of unforgettable performance art. At Proud, we like to treat our venues with care, attention and glam. Luxury and decadence, fun, and adrenaline. Each of the spectacular venues has its own unique character ready to impress and leave you in awe of what Brighton and London’s nightlife has to offer.

THE PERFORMANCES

The true magic of a drag show lies in its ability to transcend the boundaries of traditional entertainment. Drawing from burlesque influences and drag culture history, the performers offer a mesmerising blend of music and dancing, comedy, and personal expression. Everyone one of our amazing artists is world-class. Honing their craft, perfecting their strut, harmonising any vocal, quick-removal of pants… they’ve nailed it all and we can’t wait for you to experience it.

For example, at our Broadway Drag Brunch at Proud Embankment, you’ll witness a West End musical-themed drag show, featuring all the singalong hits from huge West End numbers. Similarly, at Now That’s What I Call Drag at Proud City or Brighton, you can expect a sort of “musical bingo” featuring lip-syncing, challenges, and side-splitting fun all night.

What we love is how welcome and comfortable our drag shows make people feel. By its nature, inclusivity must be part of our culture, so expect to see people of all shapes, sizes, cultures and backgrounds! We love it. Every act offers something different, ensuring that there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Whether it’s a high-energy dance-off, a jaw-dropping acrobatics stunt, or a heartfelt ballad, each performance is bound to create at the very least a few gasps.. for better or worse!

THE MAKEUP AND COSTUMES

You can’t run a drag show without simply outrageous makeup and costumes. With each performer’s unique style, it’s almost like walking pieces of art among a venue, with the glitz and glitter, colour and materials not leaving much for the imagination. The glittering jewels, dramatic makeup, and extravagant outfits are all part of the experience, adding to the electric atmosphere and making the night truly unforgettable.

THE MUSIC AND DANCING

You can’t really have a London nightlife experience without a night of music and dancing. Our drag shows feature an eclectic mix of songs and styles that will have you dancing in your seat, if not joining in the fun on the dance floor. From classic hits to modern pop anthems, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. At the Broadway Drag Brunch, you can expect all the singalong hits from huge West End numbers, while Now That’s What I Call Drag will have you laughing and dancing to “musical bingo.”
