Northern Pride Festival 2019: Town Moor


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.

Confirmed for the fesitval is a lineup of fierce ladies as headliners, including X Factor and I’m a Celeb starlet Fleur East, the scintillating Liberty X giving all the throwback feels and fresh from the Ice Arena and representing her country in Eurovision, Saara Aalto.

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 the Family & Youth Zone, Health & Wellbeing Zone, Rainbow Village stalls and some added extras!

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 the parade last year!

Site maps will be available from an information point which will show you exactly where the accessible toilets are.

Please be aware our festival takes place across two fields. As with any field, this can provide some difficulty for wheelchair users when navigating the grounds. There are small amounts of tracked footpaths throughout The Festival Arena and the Community Village, which will help reduce but not completely remove any difficulty. 

There will be British Sign Language interpreters for all performances and speeches which take place on the main stage.
