In 2019, over 22,000 people took part in the Northern Pride march and parade.
Other Things to Do in the Newcastle/Gateshead area
Newcastle and Gateshead are twinned cities connected by the architecturally-striking Gateshead Millennium Bridge. It is a tilt bridge used by pedestrians and cyclists and is one of the things to visit while here.
In addition, in the 12th century a new castle was built here to protect the river Tyne, and the city became so-named. This was a royal castle close to the border with Scotland and is worth a visit. On a similar vein, Hadrian’s Wall, built with similar intent by the Romans, is a short drive to the north.
The Quayside is a stroll beside historic buildings, pubs and craft shops and a popular meeting place. On Sundays there is a market.

One of these is Bongos Bingo and Sink the Pink, which begins the festival and is held at Town Moor. Details on tickets, including platinum passes, can be seen here.
