Jamie Lee Harrison Joins Newcastle Pride Line Up
Jamie Lee Harrison joins the main stage line up for Newcastle Pride 2018 on July 21st!
BIG ACTS UNDER A BIG TOP AT NEWCASTLE PRIDE
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 – the same one used for NME’s Reading and Leeds festival with a capacity of more than 15,000 – to protect the crowds from adverse weather conditions.
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.
The festival, which is organised by LGBT charity Northern Pride, generated more than 9.2 million to the economy in 2017 and brought more than 73,000 visitors to the city for the two-day event.
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.
