The Dome in Tufnell Park will host the prestigious Air Guitar UK Championships tonight. Who says you need strings on a guitar in order to play it? That’s the philosophy being adopted by the contestants taking part in the Air Guitar UK Championships later today.

Contestants from across the UK will be battling it out for a place in August’s world championships in Finland.There’s one key rule to abide by, you must own a guitar made of air and it must be invisible. Last year’s winner won wearing a rubber catsuit and bright codpiece.

This event is always popular and £2 from every ticket goes to the Teenage Cancer Trust
