The North East’s LGBTQ+ young people can celebrate the spooky season in style, thanks to the return of a popular event.


Northern Pride’s Youth Prom will take place on Thursday 28 October, at Newcastle’s Crowne Plaza – which is also sponsoring the event – from 7pm to 10pm. 


And organisers have revealed that this year’s celebration will be a Halloween special, with a whole host of entertainment throughout the evening. 


Along with popular DJ Michael Maddison providing the soundtrack for the party and a buffet, young people can also enjoy a variety of performances from Drag Castle.


A newly formed collective based in the North East, the group features a diverse range of drag artists covering everything from comedy to cosplay.


The event, which is open to LGBTQ+ people and their friends aged 14 to 24, is free to attend but tickets must be reserved online.

We have revealed a spooky new look for the return of one of our most popular events later this month (October).

Northern Pride’s black-tie fundraiser will transform into a Halloween Ball this year, which will take place on 29 October at Newcastle’s Crowne Plaza.

And organisers hope that guests will embrace the spirit of the season by donning a frightful costume to match the theme.

Pride supporters can enjoy a packed programme of entertainment, including performances from singer-songwriter, Tipps, and theatre company and cabaret trio, Bonnie and the Bonnettes.

Drag king Stevie Wonderful – crowned King of the Castle at the first-ever National Drag King competition – will be taking to the stage, along with a playlist of popular hits covered by a live band, Royal Beats.

And comperes, MXYM and Dami Fawehinmi will be on hand to entertain guests throughout the event, fresh from hosting the green room at this year’s Northern Pride Online 2.1.

Tickets are £35 and include a welcome drink and three-course meal.

Places are limited so book now

We have once again made the difficult decision to postpone our UK Pride event, which will now take place from 22 – 24 July 2022.


This is not a choice we have made lightly and, although we would love to deliver a fantastic, inclusive event to celebrate the diversity of our community, our first priority is keeping our attendees, volunteers and emergency services safe.


Since we were awarded UK Pride status, our promise has  been to ‘elevate and celebrate the northeast’s LGBTQ+ community’ and because of the pandemic, and the disproportionate effect it’s having on our community, this promise is stronger than ever before.

Whilst we build our new website, which will be filled with everything you need for a healthy, safe and active LGBTQ+ life here in the northeast…if you need us we’re here
