Cheeky Girls and 5ive to headline Lincoln Pride

The headliners have been announced for this year’s Lincoln Pride event – and they are rather cheeky.

90s boy band 5ive will be joined by The Cheeky Girls and Lolly on the stage as Lincoln waves the rainbow flag.

Also on the lineup is Shena, Lopez Live, Danny Beard and a Demi Lovato Tribute.

Lincoln Pride takes place on September 29 between 11.30am and 7pm.

It will start with a parade from the city centre bus station in St Mary’s Street, featuring floats, musicians and group representatives.

Music acts start at 12 noon on Brayford Pool, hosted by Cherry Pops and Sordid Secret.

There will also be over 60 stallholders, including local and national charities and community groups.

There will also be family entertainment including musicians, games, a drag queen competition and activities, such as children’s face-painting.

Event organiser and owner of LGBT bar The Scene, Tom Mullins, said previously: “Last year, Lincoln Pride – which celebrates equality and diversity – attracted 5,000 people, including many from Nottinghamshire. They were all eager to be part of what is arguably the biggest event of its kind in Lincolnshire.”

“The parade will follow a route down Wigford Way, up the High Street and across Newland to finally arrive on the city’s Brayford Waterfront at noon.

“The Mayor of Lincoln, Councillor Keith Weaver, will then lead the parade to the stage near the old Barge on The Brayford, where he will officially open the event.”
