Northern Pride is back at Central Park in 2024! This year, the Northern Pride Arena will once again come alive with an impressive stage for live performances from big names and local stars.

In 2023, despite the rain, over 15,000 people marched through the city, weaving down the iconic Northumberland Street and past the historic Grey’s Monument. This year, the theme is "Unapologetically Visible," emphasizing the importance of visibility for the LGBTQIA+ community.

The iconic Northern Pride March will take place on Saturday 20th July starting at Civic Centre, Barras Bridge. This year’s theme, "Unapologetically Visible," will unite thousands of community members, allies, and local businesses as they fill the streets of Newcastle with vibrant colours and messages of hope and solidarity. Join us in championing LGBTQIA+ rights and visibility.

Festival goers can expect a vibrant lineup on the main stage, including local stars like Ginger Johnson, James Barr, and Whigfield. The Market Village returns with stalls featuring community groups, charities, and talented makers and creators who use their art to enhance the community.

Northern Pride 2024 will feature several free themed zones, including:

  • Curious Arts Stage at Northern Stage, showcasing queer art and culture.
  • Lumo Platform at Grey’s Monument, bringing live performances to the Market Village.
  • Family & Youth Zone at The Assembly Rooms, offering activities for LGBTQIA+ families and young people.
  • Health & Wellbeing Zone at Civic Centre, providing advice, support, and health services.
  • Sport & Active Life Zone at Northumbria University, offering taster sessions and promoting accessible sports.
  • Hits Radio DJ Truck Stop on Grey Street, featuring the best DJs in town.
  • Screen on the Green on Grey Street, with movie screenings like "Strange Worlds" and "Love, Simon."

The Pride Shuttle Bus will provide free transport between key festival zones. The celebration culminates in a free Candlelit Vigil on Sunday night at Central Park, allowing attendees time for reflection and remembrance.

Enjoy a weekend of showstopping performances at the Northern Pride Arena, along with countless free Pride experiences throughout the city. Don’t miss out on this incredible celebration of the vibrant and beautiful queer community.

Northern Pride 2024 aims to draw over 80,000 people to Newcastle, celebrating the vibrant and beautiful queer community and their significant contributions to society.
