FESTIVAL fans in the North East still have time to secure the best views for an array of musical stars this summer.
Newcastle Pride, sponsored by business improvement district NE1, is returning from 20 – 22 July with the new addition of a big top tent – and an even bigger musical line-up, with Alexandra Burke and S Club headlining over the weekend.
And there are a limited number of Golden Circle and VIP tickets remaining for those wanting to guarantee a prime viewing spot close to the stage at Nuns Moor.
As well as the best views of the Manchester Airport San Francisco Stage, Golden Circle ticket holders will have access to private toilets and the Gold Circle bar, to minimise queueing time.
Those purchasing VIP tickets will have access to the VIP area next to the stage, with a private bar and garden area, separate toilets and full access to the Golden Circle area in front of the stage.
“We’re always looking for ways to improve the Newcastle Pride experience and this year we have made the Golden Circle and VIP areas bigger and better than ever before,” said Stephen Willis, festival director.
“Newcastle Pride is a free festival but, as in previous years, we have a selection of ticket upgrades available for those who want to be close to the stage and reduce queuing times for the bars and toilets.
“We’re really grateful to everyone who buys a Golden Circle or VIP ticket because not only do they get festival perks, but the proceeds from ticket sales go towards funding Newcastle Pride and keeping it free at the point of entry.”
Joining Alexandra Burke and S Club on the main stage across the weekend is west-end leading man Gareth Gates, X Factor duo Jack and Joel and The Voice favourite Jordan Gray, with more acts still to be announced.
Golden Circle tickets are priced at £21.39 for each day or £26.49 for the weekend, with VIP tickets costing £39.75 for each day or £49.95 for the weekend. Tickets can be purchased from http://www.northern-pride.com/shop/tickets.
