Co-hosted by cabaret stars Mzz Kimberley and Sadie Sinner, alongside hype man Mr Black Branson, the night features burlesque, spoken verse and live art to explore the stories LGBT people of colour continue to leave behind.

The event on Saturday, February 17 opens at 8pm with an exclusive screening of a film created specially for the night.

DJs Kartel Brown, Pandemic and BBZ will then be laying down a helping of dancehall, RnB and grime favourites.

Legacy is arts group Duckie’s collaboration with film maker Campbell X and Kayza Rose, head of media at UK Black Pride.

Tickets are £4 before 11pm, £8 after.
