There will be a talent showcase along side performances from 24 Drums, Bandsoc, Street Soc, LUDS and LUST, with the night closed by a drag DJ.

The Michael Causer Foundation aims to educate young people on LGBT+ issues through school visits by young LGBT+ people in the area.

So far LGBT+ Society have raised £430 for the charity through bake sales and tickets already bought.

Giuseppe, a Zoology third year and LGBT+ Society’s social secretary and next year will be the society’s president said:

“It is extremely exciting to be working with an influential charity such as the Michael Causer Foundation. Being able to aid the incredible work they do, especially in such a fun-filled manner, is an honour, and we hope to strengthen our bonds with this charity going forward from this event.”
