BLACKPOOL PRIDE FESTIVAL – 8TH AND 9TH JUNE 2013
Blackpool’s first Pride Festival is being held at the iconic Winter Gardens as a two day indoor Festival on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June. Entrance is free and all LGBT people, their families and friends are welcome.
Blackpool Pride Festival is delighted to announce that pop superstar and million selling artist, Gareth Gates, is to headline this year’s event on the Saturday afternoon. On the Sunday afternoon, Black Lace will headline the show. They are best known for their novelty party records, including their biggest hit, ‘Agadoo’.
There will also be a variety of other fantastic performers at the Winter Gardens, including Tameka on the Saturday and Diva Fever on the Sunday, as well as many other local and national artists. There will be a separate family area, a young person’s area and an area for our trans community where we will arrange a changing room, professional advice and refreshments. In addition there will be information services, an LGBT market place and a restaurant and cafe for the duration of the Festival.
The walking parade will start at the Cenotaph, meander through town and end at the Winter Gardens. The Mayor of Blackpool, Councillor Eddie Collett, will start the parade and also open the Festival in the Winter Gardens.
In the evenings, we hope everyone will visit the North Shore area of the Blackpool and enjoy all our wonderful Partner bars and venues. Many of these will be putting on their own cabaret, making the entire weekend a vibrant and exciting celebration of our LGBT community. The fun starts on the Friday evening, so we advise those coming from outside Blackpool to book their hotels now as the demand for rooms will be very high.
