London celebrations

RuPaul’s Dragcon UK returns to London in 2023

Brought to you by RuPaul and the creators of RuPaul’s Drag Race, World of Wonder, RuPaul’s DragCon UK is officially spinning in 2023. The second iteration of the UK convention is set to be the biggest and fiercest year yet, starting Friday January 6 to Sunday January 8, 2023.

The convention will take place at its new home, the ExCeL Center in London and will – for the first time ever – feature a full three-day event for drag racing fans. Tickets for the event will be on sale from May 15, 2022 on https://uk.rupaulsdragcon.com/

The London event will include signings and meetings with Queens; stage performances throughout the weekend; exclusive panels and programming; merchandising; and immersive activations of RuPaul’s Drag Race and fan-favorite shows from WOW Presents Plus.

“2020 feels like an eternity, and we’re thrilled to bring our flagship in-person event back to the community we love so much – this time for three full days of programming!” say World of Wonder co-founders Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey. “The 2023 convention at ExCeL London will officially be our biggest UK convention to date. Our top priority will of course be everyone’s safety, as we once again bring drag excellence to London.

DragCon UK’s first priority is always the health and safety of everyone involved. Given how quickly information and safety requirements surrounding COVID-19 have changed, specific COVID guidelines will be determined closer to the event.
