What to expect…

Come and join KRUSH at a special-soon-to-be-announced London location for the chance to meet like-minded LGBT people who appreciate the value of face-to-face networking. Included in the ticket is entrance to an exclusve venue, a free welcome drink and a great night of networking in a truly unique environment.

KRUSH uses non-intrusive techniques of encouraging people to network and you will never find anybody on their own at our events. So, whether you come on your own or with a group of friends, you can be sure of a great night out.

Special guest host Susie Sykes – ’Dated’ dating agency host and matchmaking entrepreneur – joins KRUSH and And What?, encouraging you to ditch the digital for a night of networking.

Are those apps making you angry? Social sites sucking your soul? Are you feeling those filofax days of face-to-face?

Join Susie to look to the past for inspiration, as we embrace the traditions of networking… and maybe each other?

What’s that? You want MORE Peaches & Jinkx? Well OK then, get up close, sweaty and personal…

STAUNCH:

The official afterparty for the closing night and UK Premiere of Return to Grey Gardens at Toynbee Studios, this evening will be hosted by the fabulous PEACHES CHRIST (cult hostess of San Francisco’s wildy acclaimed Midnight Mass series) and Seattle’s own narcoleptic starlet JINKX MONSOON (winner, RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5).

With support from Manchester’s Cha Cha Boudoir family of glamour toads, gender terrorists and femme assassins, we’ll be taking inspiration from fashion icon Lil’ Edie’s make-do-and-mend sensibilities. No cash? No problem!

The evening’s theme is thrift, jumble, poundstore, dress in distressed or bin-bag couture! It’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it!

Dressing up IS encouraged

Music, live performance, special guests, dancing, raffle, drunk people, gaffa tape giddiness, unidentifiable bruises and costume swaps GALORE! All spread over two floors of fun, dancing and mayhem.

Our Friends from over the pond:

Our friends from upe-Nerth

Our Frie… well people we know from the darkest gutters of London
