If your inner diva is just ready and rearing to come out ahead of the annual Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras this weekend, then boy do we have the event for you!

This laneway bar in Sydney is hosting a whole array of Mardi Gras themed events this week, including one FABULOUS three-day Drag Queen lip-syncing battle.

So grab your glitter, platform heels and biggest hairstyles and get ready to hit the stage!

It’s all going down at The Winery in Surry Hills and will be hosted by Sydney Drag Royalty from Wednesday night this week.

Over the three nights, our beloved Drag Queens will perform to classic pop hits over three heats dedicated to some of the biggest divas in the music industry.


The heats include:

Wednesday 26th: Kylie vs Pink

Thursday 27th: Shania Twain vs Christina Aguilera

Friday 28th: Adele vs Madonna

And guess what? They’ll actually be an opportunity for YOU to take the spotlight and give the lip syncing a go yourself during the audience battle.

Does this sound like your cup of tea? Each show will set you back $20 for a ticket but that also includes a cocktail on arrival to help give your inner drag queen some liquid courage.


You can grab tickets here!

The Winery is also hosting a whole bunch of other fun Mardi Gras events for the rest of the week! You can check out more details here.
