Newcastle Pride Parade 2018


2018 will mark the 40th anniversary of the Rainbow Flag, created by Gilbert Baker. 

Newcastle Pride, sponsored by NE1, will help celebrate this milestone, the meaning behind the rainbow and the symbol it has become for our commmunity, and as a symbol for love. 


MUSIC fans attending of one of the UK’s largest, free LGBT festivals are invited to fix their Broken Heels and Don’t Stop Movin’ for the first announcement of this year’s musical line-up.

X Factor winner Alexandra Burke and chart-topping band S Club are among the first acts lined up to perform at this summer’s Newcastle Pride festival which is supported by headline sponsor, business improvement district, NE1.

The popular Pride weekend will take place on 20-22 July and be held for the first time at Nuns Moor Park, with a whole host of entertainment and events in the Pride programme in the weeks leading up to it.

As well as a new location, this year’s weekend festival will make use of a big top tent. Alexandra Burke will be headlining the Manchester Airport San Francisco Stage on July 21 while 90’s favourites S Club will take top billing on it the following day.

Since winning the X Factor in 2008, Alexandra Burke has gone on to become one of the most successful winners of the show, with a number of top ten singles, including Bad Boys, All Night Long and her record-breaking Christmas number one, Hallelujah.

More recently she has performed in starring roles on the West End in The Bodyguard and Sister Act the Musical and impressed audiences with her performance on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, which saw her through to the final.

Joining Burke and S Club across the weekend is West End leading man Gareth Gates, X Factor stars Jack and Joel - Simon Cowell’s wildcard act on last year’s series - and The Voice 2016 favourite, Jordan Gray, with more acts still to be announced.

As well as the Pride weekend, there will be a number of satellite events in the weeks running up to the festival at venues around Newcastle.

Many of the events are free to attend, however there are a limited number of VIP and Gold Circle tickets available for those who want to secure prime viewing spots at the Manchester Airport San Francisco Stage event.

More information about the weekend will be announced in due course. But mark your diaries, as we bring together the region and friends to celebrate #NewcastlePride2018 and #40YearsOfRainbow
