Northern Pride Festival will host UK Pride at Newcastle’s Town Moor from 22 to 24 July, with a packed programme of events scheduled across the region during the countdown to the weekend.
We have revealed a stellar line up for our Friday night fundraiser, with Broadway star, famed choreographer and award-winning performer Todrick Hall headlining the launch party.
Also joining him is RuPaul’s Drag Race UK finalist Bimini Bon Boulash and world-famous DJ Jodie Harsh, with more acts to be announced soon.
Todrick Hall found widespread success after appearing on American Idol, going on to collaborate professionally with huge stars such as Beyonce, Taylor Swift and Pentatonix and judging on tv shows including RuPaul’s Drag Race and The Greatest Dancer.
And it will be the second time organisers are working with Todrick after being one of the few UK Pride festivals selected to take part in Global Pride 2020, which the performer hosted.
Joining Toddrick on the line-up is Bimini Bon Boulash, who rose to fame and became a firm fan favourite after appearing on the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.
The finalist won over viewers with their eclectic style and quick wit during their time on the show, caricaturing Katie Price, performing a hit verse on the chart-topping single UK Hun? and later releasing their debut single, God Save This Queen.
And the festival will also welcome back renowned DJ Jodie Harsh – who headlined last year’s virtual event, Northern Pride Online 2.1.
A staple on the UK club scene, the acclaimed producer has played for audiences across the globe and taken to the stage at huge events including Glastonbury, Creamfields and Bestival.

HELP KEEP PRIDE FREE
One of our key aims at Northern Pride is to ensure that regardless of your sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression or sex characteristics, you can attend a free pride event in your home town or city.
That's why we work all year round to raise the money needed to put on our FREE Northern Pride Festival weekend. Ticketed events like this one, help us to do exactly that. So by joining us on Friday night, you'll be helping us in our mission. We're incredibly grateful.
We understand that there will still be some in our community that won't be able to cover the cost associated with this event, that's why we're working with community groups, and local LGBTQ+ charities and community groups to provide a free allocation of tickets for their service users, so they can join us.
