On the main stage, Student Pride will host RuPaul’s Drag Race UK’s Tomara Thomas and Cara Melle, as well as ‘Queer Question Time’, hosted by LBC’s Natasha Devon, to ask the big questions facing LGBTQ+ students and LGBTQ+ TV and Film, headlined by Russell T Davies. The main stage is hosted by Tia Kofi and Charlie Craggs. Free daytime tickets, £ 10-weekend wristbands and Sunday Drag Brunch bolt-on tickets are available at https://www.studentpride.co.uk/tickets.
