UK, Hun? Winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Season 2, Scottish drag royalty, and the UK’s reigning drag superstar – it’s Laaaawrence Chaaaaaaney.

Join Lawrence for a one-off exclusive in-conversation event at South London’s palace of varieties, the Clapham Grand, to launch his brand new book Drag Queen of Scots. Don’t miss the chance to buy a copy of the book for a reduced price with your ticket, be one of the first to own his hilarious memoir.

From the tiny town of Helensburgh near Glasgow, Lawrence has exploded on to the world stage and taken it by storm with his charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent. But before the meteoric rise to fame, there was a little boy feeling self-conscious and turning to humour to avoid being bullied – and finding drag as a vehicle towards confidence and self-love.

This is your chance to hear Lawrence in conversation, ask him your questions, and get to know the person behind the iconic Drag Queen of Scots. You've seen the looks, the laughs, and the tears, but now it's time to strap in and dive heard first into the purple haze that is the world of Lawrence Chaney.

'Gorgeous, hugely talented, funny, charismatic, adorable, Chaney is a goddess and brings us joy.' Lorraine Kelly

'Lawrence Chaney is the funniest queen by a country mile. She has delivered the laughs a locked down nation needed in abundance. But there's much more to Chaney than her quick wit. Her vulnerability is also part of her natural gift.' Vogue
