Newcastle Pride Festival
Date Posted: 22/05/14
The festival to unite LGBT communities in the North East will be hosted in Newcastle from July 18th to 20th, 2014.
Increasing in size this year, Newcastle Pride has extended to three days in two different venues - Town Moor and Times Square.
Run by Northern Pride, a registered charity, the event’s aim is to spread awareness, reduce homophobia and unite the communities in the region with a number of music and arts events, and of course the major parade through the streets on the afternoon of Saturday 19th.
The Saturday is the main day for the festivities and kicks off at midday on the Town Moor with Dj sets beginning at 12.30pm, and the parade arriving from Newcastle Civic Centre shortly afterwards. After 6pm, the celebration moves to Times Square and the city stage until 10pm.
The entertainment put on throughout the three day event is free to all, so check out a Newcastle hotel to find a good deal soon.
