Finalist on Ru Paul's Drag Race UK Divina de Campo will bring the sass as the host of a Eurovision party in Norwich.
In what could be the campest party to ever take place in the city, experience Eurovision like never before at OPEN Norwich with a night of glittering costumes, flag waving and weird and wonderful performances from across Europe.
The competition takes place on Saturday, May 16 and this year is hosted in Rotterdam in the Netherlands, after Duncan Laurence raised the trophy in 2019 with song 'Arcade'.
The Norwich event will be hosted by Ru Paul's Drag Race UK runner-up Divina de Campo, who narrowly lost out to The Vivienne, and she will also be performing.
Davina, who has also appeared on The Voice and All Together Now, was popular with both fans and the judges on Drag Race and as one-third of The Frock Destroyers in the girlband task, alongside Blu Hydrangea and Baga Chipz, they even reached the top 10 of the UK of singles chart with song Break Up (Bye Bye).
Eurovision will be shown on their seven-metre screen and it promises to be a night to remember, even if the UK walk away with 'nul-points'.
Kirstie Tifrani, conference & hospitality manager for OPEN Norwich, said: "We are excited to bring to Norwich the ultimate Eurovision party with Divina De Campo.
