Over two days in February, the Glitterbox team transformed our auditorium into a club stage bedecked with disco lights, mirror balls and a catwalk fit for their troupe of club kids, drag queens and go-go dancers.
While they were there, they recorded two events behind closed doors: a unique three-part premiere event to coincide with the release of their documentary Where Love Lives, and the official Red Nose Day after-party, the Red Nose Rave, hosted by Gok Wan.
