Newcastle Pride - Saturday 16 July

News   •   Jul 13, 2016 12:11 BST

Newcastle Pride takes place on Saturday 16 July and we'll be there showing our support with our very own Pride bus, along with a host of other activities on top of what Pride already has to offer.

We'll have our Quaylink Pride bus, face painting, a magician, juggling, giant volleyball, outdoor games, selfie buses and more!

Plan your journey to the heart of Newcastle Pride with us – and don't forget to come and say hello when you get there. 

Other than at Newcastle Pride, you can find our Quaylink Pride bus running in and around Gateshead and Newcastle all year round, showing our support and promoting awareness of equality for LGBT communities across the region.
