Northern Pride Festival 

(formerly Newcastle Pride) 

is returning for another jam-packed weekend of LGBT+ celebrations in the heart of Newcastle. From the 19th – 21st July 2019, the Northern Pride festival takes over both the historic Town Moor and Exhibition Park, with a range of unforgettable experiences, from big-name artists performing on the Main Stage to Family and Youth zones, a fairground and an array of food and drink options.


The Town Moor becomes the Pride Festival Arena, home to the Main Stage, food and drink and the fairground. This year, Exhibition Park joins the festival to become the Community Village, home to our Family & Youth Zone, Health & Wellbeing Zone, Rainbow Village stalls and some added extras that we can’t wait to tell you about.


The three-day festival includes the Stonewall Remembrance March, as a sea of rainbow flags, LGBT+ people, allies, individuals and organisations join together to parade through the city centre. Over 20,000 people joined us for the parade last year!

Sister Shack's Pride Social - Tyne Bank Brewery


Sister Shack is excited to bring its 5th event to Tyne Bank Brewery. We've got an extra special one lined up to celebrate pride and we can't wait for you all to join us. We want to provide a LGBTQ+ safe space and an alternative pride to those who like something a little bit different and tucked away from the crowds. There will also be a drop of point to help fight period poverty.

Kay Greyson, KINTRA and Trinity Tweddle will be providing beautiful live music. We'll have loads of stallholders, entrepreneurs, artists, designers and much more. Our art table will once again be filled with unique art and items, and some extra special pride themed work.

Food will be served inside by Snack Wallah and outside by Beacon Burgers, and there will be a range of other savoury and sweet goods available inside.

We'll provide a kids zone throughout the day and there will be a glitter disco from 7pm with the finest women DJs. Hopefully the sun will be shining on us; we can't wait to see you there. We'll be running some fundraisers to help us raise costs to pay for everyone who helps us behind the scenes and for everyone taking part on the day, so watch this space...

As always, there will be great beer & other drinks in the Tap Room. We'll also announce the full list of traders, performers and stalls, leading up to the event.

SATURDAY 20th of July.
