The UK’s first ever RuPaul's DragCon took place at London Olympia over the weekend - with organisers having to apologise after some visitors were unable to get into the venue due to massive queues.
An opportunity for fans of RuPaul's Drag Race to meet the stars of the reality TV show, DragCon featured appearances by the 10 queens who last autumn participated in the first-ever UK series of the show.
In an official statement, DragCon’s organisers said: "Health & Safety officers had advised us to temporarily halt the queue entrances today for an hour due to clogging of the aisles, and from there on out - we got everyone in as fast as possible under health & safety's watch.
