An abominably ugly beauty pageant, chaotic gameshow-cum-costume clubnight!

Immersive party pros Shotgun Carousel, together with House of Dark Shadows  bring you a one night Vampstravaganza...to kick-start Halloween week. This is The Vampire Pageant!

There will be DJs.... There will be prizes.... There will be blood.

Sink your teeth into this: Flocking to the city of smoke from across the globe, vampires of all identities are invited to enter this glorious and most abominably ugly of beauty pageants of their own free will, to compete in a number of ghoulish categories that will determine who is finally crowned

Queen or King.....of the Damned!!! As the moon rises high and the night air chills, your host LOOSE WILLIS (Pecs drag-king collective) proudly welcomes bloodsucking beasts of all creeds – from ages 18 to 10,000 – to attend, either as contestants, or to cheer your favourite fiends through each round as they showcase their talent, style, wit, technique and malevolence!

Competing so far are….

Little Lord Fangsy-Pants
Despite being centuries old, this little socialite Vampire still lives with his Mummy Wummy, eternally playing harpsichord to rooms of exsanguinated party guests... While his ancient mother doesn't approve of his blood-soaked orgiastic tendencies, she's given permission for him to attend the pageant for one-night-only, for the first time in ALL time....

Sir Thomas Sanguine.
Most ancient of contestants to this Vampire Pageant, straight from the 16th Century.... The Yorkist beast. The stalker of the tower. The vanquisher of a thousand foes. By order of the King Henry Rex he will be competing!

Selma the Serial Succubus
Polyglamorous bride to 30+ vampires ('What's a girl to do? They just won't die') and utter bunny-boiling lady-fiend. Recently caged for everyone's safety!

And You!
Vamps who wish to compete in this most prestigious of pageants will be able to acquire entry cards at the door.

After the spectacular grand finale, creatures of darkness are summoned to the dance floor by their favourite children of the night, DJ Carol Voldemort and DJ Finga Fangs ‘n’ his Bloodsucking Beats are on hand with sweet music to jive, twist and rock you into a hellish frenzy!!

Dress Code: Dress to depress! Vampires only. Humans will be eaten on sight.
