Pop Curious events for April 2022

FRIDAY 15th APRIL 2022:  Pop Curious? presents BRITNEYFEST @ Gorilla, Manchester

Calling all Outrageous Boys, Pretty Girls, Toxic Womanizers and Clumsy Femme Fatales!

Come put on your Perfume and get In The Zone at BRITNEYFEST: a Britney Spears celebration on Friday 15th April at Gorilla on Whitworth Street from 11pm!

You'll be dancing 'Til The World ends to all of Britney Jean's best singles, album tracks and fan favourites. Sometimes we'll throw in an occasional palate cleanser from other pop royalty such as Dua Lipa, Madonna, Kylie, Beyoncé or Rihanna (others will B In The Mix too), but otherwise it'll be simply Spears all night!

There'll be free Britney face masks on the door for early attendees (first come, first served), plus amazing Britney drag performance throughout the evening from:


Monopoly Phonic!

Vin Dicktiv!

Violet Vogue!

These drags were Born To Make You Happy!

We'll also be hosting a Lucky prize fancy dress competition during the event, so Do Somethin' good, as we want to see lots of amazing Britneys on our Radar!

So: Do You Wanna Come Over to Gorilla for the ultimate Spears celebration? It'd be Criminal to miss it!
