Northern Pride are the hosts of UK Pride 2021, sponsored by Barclays, which will take place at Newcastle’s Town Moor from 23rd to 25th July.


Whilst our plans for 2020 have been postponed due to COVID-19, our commitment to you does not change, to deliver ALL our satellite events and our most diverse pride festival EVER!


Ste Dunn, chair of Northern Pride, believes the 2021 festival will be the most diverse to date.

“We have a whole host of plans already underway to pull off something really amazing next summer and launching with a club night is a perfect way to kick off our countdown with a bang,” said Ste.

“The weekend festival gets bigger and better every year but we also run a really exciting programme of entertainment year-round and this is something we really want to showcase in the run-up to the main event.

“We’re delighted to be the hosts of UK Pride 2021 and we’re working closely with the local authority and the business improvement district to make sure we create a lasting legacy that will create an impact for years to come.”
