There will also be performances from Kyran Thrax, Miss Leigh Ding, The Grand’s Dream Team and DJ sets from Tete Bang and Lady Lloyd.

The venue will also welcome back Drag Race UK and cabaret royalty, Joe Black, who brings his Club Cataclysm show to The Grand.

He will headline the venue on 30 October for an evening of “devilish dirge, vaudevillian villainy and musical mayhem”, as part of his UK tour.

Other events taking place across the weekend include movie nights, with screenings of Rocky Horror Picture Show and Hocus Pocus on 29 and 31 October – and yes costumes are a must.

There’s also Bongo’s Bingo and Cirque Du Soul taking place on 28 October and OUTHAUS, a queer disco party led by DJ Josh Harrison, gogo dancers and suprise guests on 22 October to kick off Halloween season.

Drag Race UK returns to our screens

Last month saw the triumphant return of Drag Race UK to BBC Three, with an opening episode that was chaotic in the most iconic way as the queens brought the looks and the drama.

The fourth season has made herstory as it features Dakota Schiffer among the cast, who is the first trans woman to compete on Drag Race UK.

“In the UK, specifically, it’s a really difficult time and climate to be trans right now,” she told PinkNews, “and to be given that opportunity to be a positive representation for my community was just overwhelming, it’s certainly something that motivated me.”

She continued: “It can feel daunting at times to feel like you have to represent everyone’s experience because trans representation is few and far between, especially on such a massive platform but it motivated me massively.”

While fellow contestant, Sminty Drop recently opened up about wanting to inspire young, queer kids in her hometown, Clitheroe, after being a victim of bullies when she was growing up.

“I come from a very small town in the middle of the countryside.” She told PinkNews and other media. “I don’t think anybody where I’m from thinks that somebody here can be big, you live and die here. Very few people venture out from here.”
She added: “I want other queer kids in my hometown to look at me and be an idol for them to think, ‘OK, I can get out of here. I’m in school and being bullied’.”
