WELCOME TO 
THE ARENA 

We’re incredibly excited to be back at Central Park we were here last in 2021 where we delivered our Covid Safe event, broadcasting our Digital Pride content in 2021.

 

This time, the Northern Pride Arena takes shape with an impressive stage for live performances from big names and local stars.

WELCOME TO 
THE CITY

Under the theme “unapologetically visible” the aim now is to bring over 80,000 people to Newcastle during the Pride weekend, by bringing all the festival favourites right into the heart of the city.

Our mission is clear. We’re using our festival to highlight the vibrant and beautiful queer community, the valuable impact they have on society and the richness of their talents, from makers and creators, to performers and activists,

 FREE PRIDE IN THE CITY
OFFICIAL VENUES

Saturday 20th from 12pm til 5pm (Curious Arts Stage finishes 7pm)

MARKET VILLAGE 

Grey's Monument & Old Eldon Square, Blackett Street

Greys Monument has become a place for modern protests and activism.  It is a symbol to the people of our region that change can be made even when it seems impossible to do so. This fight and determination was key in Grey’s introduction of The Great Reform Act 1832.

 

It makes perfect sense to bring our Market Village to this area. Our stalls are filled with community groups, charities, and our amazing makers and creators, many of which use their work and their art to improve the lives of our community.

Despite the downpour, last year’s march saw 15,000 people take to the streets of Newcastle in good spirits, led by young people and educators to mark 20 years since the repeal of Section 28, highlighting the continued challenges facing the LGBTQIA+ community.

 

In line with the theme unapologetically visible, this year’s March will again see thousands of community members, allies, local people and businesses come together to fill the streets of Newcastle with a colourful message of hope.
