Three singers including an X-Factor finalist have been announced as the first acts for the newly-located Lincoln Pride 2019.
As previously reported, organisers said the event outgrew its space on the Brayford so the 2019 event will be held at the Arboretum park off Monks Road on Saturday, September 28.
It will run from 11am until 7pm, but there will be no parade this year. However, organisers previously said talks were already underway regarding the 2020 event and parade.
The first acts and the hosts
Seann Miley Moore was an X-Factor finalist in 2015 and first performed at Lincoln Pride in 2017, while Black Lace star Dene Michael is probably best known for the classic hit ‘Agadoo’.
Kelly Wilde is an Australian recording artists, who has wowed the Lincoln Pride stage before and can be seen on BBC One’s ‘All Together Now’.
Lincoln Pride 2019 has also announced its hosts for the day, who the event describes as “legends of Lincoln”. They are Cherry Pops, Sordid Secret and Bubbles La Belle.
The Scene nightclub will be open throughout the day of Pride with various different activities.
The official after party will also be held at The Scene from 7pm until 7am the following day.
Transport and VIP tickets
Lincoln Pride is also putting on pride-specific transport for the first time thanks to the work of its sponsor The Scene.
The bus will have a suggested donation of £1 and all donations will go directly into making Lincoln Pride happen.
The bus will run a continual loop between opposite Lincoln Central train station, outside The Scene and Lincoln Arboretum. The bus, which has almost 50 seats, will operate from 10.30am-8pm with a break at 2pm-3pm.
Although Lincoln Pride UK remains a free to attend event, anyone who would like to make a contribution towards the annual costs can celebrate in style with VIP tickets.
Golden Circle Access costs £20 and this gets you the best view to the main stage and guarantees a spot in the first few rows of the audience.
VIP Experience + Golden Circle tickets are priced at £45 and includes access to the Golden Circle viewing area and treats such as a complementary drink token and access to the VIP bar.
The organisers are expected to make further announcements about the event this week.
