UK Pride Newcastle
The Northern Pride Festival are the hosts of UK Pride in 2022 and they have not disappointed. The packed programme runs along the theme of “Remember, Resist, Rise Up”, a powerful message with events, concerts, and parades delighting thousands of locals and visitors from across the country. The line-up is incredible and has plenty of big names to keep all generations happy. Enjoy a headline set from the one and only Melanie C, a fantastic performance from X-factor favourite Joe McElderry and music from much-loved BBC Radio 1 presenter and DJ Adele Roberts. Enjoy appearance and entertainment from former RuPaul’s Drag Race Competitor Chorizo May as well as musicians, vocalists, and entertainment from across the Northeast LGBTQ+ community, all hosted by the fabulous Miss Rory and special guests.
There will be live music, plenty of entertainment, a Rainbow Village with local and national charities and businesses, food and drink, street performers, a funfair and so much more. If you’re part of the UK LGBTQ+ community or an ally, it would be a shame to miss the most colourful weekend of the year.
