Newcastle Pride - The Parade
Last year saw our biggest parade ever with 16,000 people marching through Newcastle City centre, this years will be even bigger.

Join in the pride celebrations and parade start point at Newcastle Civic Centre, Barras Bridge, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 8QH where we'll parade down Northumberland Street, then onto Nuns Moor

The parade will start at 12pm. Please meet at Newcastle Civic Centre from 11.30am, with thanks to our sponsors, EDF Energy, Nandos and Ubisoft

This year’s parade theme is 40 Years of Rainbow, as we celebrate 40 years since Gilbert Baker designed the rainbow flag and it was first used at San Francisco Pride in 1978. Come in fancy dress, wear bright colours and make lots and lots of noise.
Groups of 5+ should register details of how to register will be released soon.

Pride March - Time for a Coffee?


Before the march why not drop into St Thomas' Church meet up with friends and have tea or coffee and a cake before you set off.
St Thomas' is just 200 m from Newcastle Civic Centre, the starting point of the march. The church serves its local community in a number of ways. It is registered as an Inclusive Church, one of only three in the North East, and has offered hospitality to this and similar events in the past ... They shall be open for the hour before the march...
They hope to see some of you on the day.

We want you to have a safe and fun time at Newcastle Pride. This year we will not be allowing alcohol or food (except for dietary requirements) to be brought on site. There will be random security checks to stop this from happening which is for your own safety. We have five bars plus eight different food stalls so there’s plenty of opportunity to have a drink and enjoy the atmosphere.

Have fun, be safe and above all drink responsibly! The Bars will operate challenge 25 please bring your ID if you’re lucky enough to look under 25
