Hey Kitty Girls! The largest drag convention in Europe is returning to the UK this summer.

On August 18-19 the London Olympia will host some of the biggest names in drag for a second year.

This year is expected to be even more sickening as 15,000 drag fans will catch the likes of RuPaul's Drag Race winners Alaska, Bebe Zahara Benet and Violet Chachki across the weekend.

They will take part in Q&As and lip-syncs, whilst there will be stalls, tutorials and panels to also enjoy at the event, plus fans can kiki with the queens during meet and greets.

Returning for a second year is season five winner Jinkx Monsoon who said: "I've gotta say, DragWorld UK was a wonderful success. I could cry, I feel so blessed."

Other big names on this year's lineup include UK queens Anna Phylactic, Charity Kase and Cheddar Gorgeous, as well as US Instagram queen Biblegirl.

The lineup is completed by RuPaul's Drag Race alumni Farrah Moan, Jujubee, Tatianna and Phi Phi O'Hara, with even more names to be announced over the next few months.

Last year saw fan favourites Jinkx Monsoon, Adore Delano, Ginger Minj and Katya take part with fans flocking from Australia, UAE, America and Japan to join in the fun.
