Lock the doors, lower the blinds, fire up the smoke machines and…get ready to be proud! Newcastle Pride 2016 is almost upon us and in case you were thinking, ‘Ooh, I wonder where I can listen to this year’s performers in one, shiny little playlist,’ Man About Toon has got your back.
From headliners Heather Small, of M People fame, and noughties heartthrobs 5ive to a host of other acts taking part in this year’s festival, we’ve compiled a list of their best-loved hits (and maybe a few newbies) to get you in the mood for the UK’s largest free Pride, which takes place this Saturday July 16 – Sunday July 17 on the town moor.
Making an appearance on the playlist are 80s icon Sonia, Pride stalwarts Lorraine Crosby (with a little help from Meat Loaf) and Hazell Dean, X Factor and I’m A Celebrity… star Jake Quickenden, actress and singer Heather Peace and dance diva Tina Cousins and Sash!
Don’t forget there’s a host of others on the bill this weekend, including the North East’s own Cortney Dixon, NE Girls, Danni Dee and the Broadway dancers from Boulevard and many more.
