What is Queen Bee?

Queen Bee is one of the UK’s largest annual Drag competitions.

Competing against each other - contestants have a maximum of 10 minutes to perform. The audience vote for their favorite contestants by placing donations into the vote collection boxes, every £1= 1 Vote. The audience votes & scores from the judging panel are counted at the end of the night to reveal the winner.

A BIG Prize Draw also takes place on the event night with £1000’s worth of Prizes & Experiences to be won. Once all of the contestants have performed and vote counting begins - we also have a Special Guest Artist join us to keep the audience entertained.

100% of the money raised from Votes & prize draw ticket sales is donated to our 2 causes - Yorkshire Mesmac & St Gemma’s Hospice. Since we started Queen Bee in 2015, we have raised more than £22,000 thanks to the amazing support from our audience.

Tickets for this years event are now on sale from just £12, Queen Bee 2019 will take place on Monday 2nd December at The Queens Hotel - Leeds. Doors open from 6pm.

Contestant entry for Queen Bee will be announced in April 2019. For more information on Queen Bee check out the OUR STORY section of the website.
