Pride goes supersize in Newcastle

Look out world - Newcastle Pride is heading your way and it’s bigger and better than ever before.

For the first time in its seven year history Newcastle Pride will run not just for one day in 2014 but for THREE glorious days of fun, frolics and social inclusion, starting with a bang on Friday July 18.

That means more music, more family entertainment and more big name stars to entertain the bumper crowd, making it officially one of the biggest free LGBT events in the UK.

To accommodate all this action the festival will be split across two new sites – the Town Moor and Times Square.

The Town Moor, which is just a short walk or Metro ride from Newcastle city centre, will serve as the Pride epicentre throughout the three event and feature high profile performances by the likes of Shayne Ward, the Vengaboys and Sinitta.

On Saturday July 19 and Sunday July 20, it will also play host to a series of stalls, food outlets and a fun fair, as well as a dedicated health zone, women’s stage, sports zone, trans zone, family zone and youth zone to cater for every taste and age.

An additional cabaret tent, sports arena, dance tent and bear zone will also be running on Saturday only – so be sure to bring suitable shoes.

For the first time this year Newcastle Pride will also be taking over the city’s infamous Pink Triangle, with a second stage outside the Centre for Life at Times Square.

The Pride in the City stage will play host to a variety of DJs and live entertainment on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, including the ‘Diva from Down Under’ Kelly Wilde and British singer/songwriter Angie Brown, who was the lead vocalist on Bizzare Inc’s I’m Gonna Get You and Took My Love.

It will launch each day once the Town Moor music has ended, giving you time to enjoy all the entertainment on offer at both sites.

Other highlights in this year’s extended event include a parade through Newcastle city centre on Saturday July 19 and the return of the Paws for Pride pet show..

Newcastle Pride is free to attend, but there’s also a limited number of
Golden Circle, VIP and Platinum tickets, available priced from £10 each, to cater for those who want a guaranteed spot close to the action.
