Tulisa to headline Lincoln Pride

Pop star Tulisa will headline Lincoln Pride on September 28, 2019, organisers announced.

The singer, who first rose to fame as lead singer in the hip hop group N-Dubz, will top the bill at this year’s event alongside acts like Platinum and Stooshe.

The Number 1 single “Young” singer is also well-known as the judge on the X-Factor whose winning act was “Little Mix”.

The free-to-attend event will be held at a brand new location for 2019 in Lincoln Arboretum.

As reported previously, this year’s event will not include a parade, but it’s hoped this will return in the future. 

Spokesperson Philip Yeo said: “We’re pleased to say that this new location will have ample room for the high number of attendees we expect a star like Tulisa to attract.

“We hope that as many members of the community as possible will pay the event a visit to see what pride is all about”.

The team behind Lincoln Pride also revealed that “Love Shy” singers Platnum will be performing at the event. They’ll be joined by Stooshe, the group behind the top 10 single “Black Heart”.

“It’s set to be a really fantastic day”, Philip added. “We hope it serves as an opportunity for people to come together and celebrate their identity. That’s what pride is all about – making a home for people!”

“For the first time, we’ll have a family area hosted by Think2Speak, with fun and games for all ages. We’ll also have a newer and bigger VIP area along with a great array of stalls for people to browse.”

Pride takes place between 11am and 7pm. VIP and Golden Circle (Front Row) Tickets can be purchased online here.
