On December 1st 2018, we brought our drag king cabaret, The Kingdom Come back to Walkley Community Centre, Sheffield. The night was a sell out, with audience members rocking some amazing costumes and outfits. Its never too early for tinsel right?
We won an Award!! Last month at Cinema For All's 2018 Film Society of the Year Awards we won in the BEST SINGLE EVENT category for our screening themed around Sekiya Dorsett's film THE REVIVAL: WOMEN AND THE WORD.

This week we hosted a QUEER HUB, in order to get feedback and ideas for an exciting programme of queer arts events that we’re planning. It was a really creative and useful session, and we’re really grateful to those that gave their time to contribute.
We're excited to bring news of the Queer Hub. On Wednesday 18th July 5.30 - 7pm at Theatre Deli Sheffield. What's a Queer Hub you may ask? Read on to find out!
Earlier this month we celebrated two years of Andro & Eve with a special edition of A Reyt Queer Do. It was nearly two years to the day that we first screened But I'm a Cheerleader in Cafe 9, Sheffield, and we marked the occasion with a night of drag king cabaret, cake and queer joy.
Today marks two years since the first Andro & Eve event at Cafe #9 with a screening of But I'm a Cheerleader. Last night we celebrated that anniversary in the best possible way, surrounded by the community we care so much about, at a special edition of A Reyt Queer Do.
We're reyt chuffed to have been featured on the revamped Our Favourite Places, in their 'Meet The Locals' section. In case you've not comes across it, Our Fave Places, is an online Sheffield Culture guide that features all you need to know when planning a visit to the Steel City.
We're excited to announce that we have drag king open mic slots available!!
On Saturday 27 January we curated and produced a special event in Sheffield focused around the film, The Revival: Women and The Word, directed by Sekiya Dorsett.

The … Continue reading Women and The Word
This week saw us produce our first in a new party series, called A Reyt Queer Do.

We write this post because, yet again, the Drag Kings we work with have been done a disservice by the media. Sadly, this time it is Sheffield independent publisher Now Then that has pretty much failed to represent what a Drag King is while promoting our next event A Reyt Queer Do. While we’re very … Continue reading Drag Kings: Lets break this down

We’ve been planning this for some time, and we’re totally thrilled to reveal our new Andro and Eve logo! While we loved our old logo, we spent summer 2017 reflecting on Andro and Eve and one of the things we realised was how much we love our name. It felt like we needed to make … Continue reading We’ve got a new logo!

On June 3rd we returned to Walkley Community Centre to produce the second edition of our Drag King night, The Kingdom Come.

On Saturday 22nd April we hosted our first drag king workshop at One Space Sheffield. Adam All and Apple Derrieres travelled from London to deliver this special event, and help those attending bring forth their male alter ego’s through discussion, movement and makeup tutorials. To be honest we really didn’t know what to expect, this … Continue reading Our first Drag King workshop!
Why Andro and Eve? We get asked sometimes..
somehow this film manages to capture the essence of the book, changing a few minor plot points, but making a piece of art that stands in its own right
"we can’t help feeling excited and a little bit proud of what we’ve achieved here in Sheffield at a time when it seems that women-focused and queer spaces are needed more than ever "
We’re really pleased to announce our next event: a one off screening of Gender Troubles: The Butches, a new documentary by Lisa Plourde. We saw this film at SQIFF in October and wrote about it here for Now Then. Mostly we loved this film for its warmth, humour and honesty. There are plenty stereotypes of butch … Continue reading Gender Troubles: The Butches

It was the first time Sheffield had its own drag king night (to our knowledge), the first time we had produced an event at Walkley Community Centre, and the first time we brought together an all gender crowd to celebrate queer culture. Both of … Continue reading The Kingdom Come!
Since starting Andro and Eve in May 2016 we’ve been keen to promote the wonderful and surreal queer art of drag kings. Most people know what a drag queen is, and many will have watched RuPaul’s Drag Race, even if they have not been to a drag night. But when we’ve talked about drag kings … Continue reading So what’s a drag king night?
