Newcastle Pride, sponsored by business improvement district NE1, is hosting their popular Black Tie Ball fundraiser at The Crowne Plaza, Newcastle on Wednesday 27 June.


But those wishing to attend the event should act fast as tickets are selling quickly and there are only limited numbers left.


Tickets to the event, which takes place from 7pm – 1am, are priced at £41.78 and include a drink on arrival, a three course meal and live music from The Storm Band.


There is also the opportunity to book a table of 10 at the event for £373.29 and tickets can be purchased


Proceeds for the event go to LGBT charity Northern Pride, to help keep Newcastle Pride free in future years.


Stephen Willis, festival director of Newcastle Pride said: “The Black Tie Ball is one of the biggest satellite events we host in the lead up to the Pride weekend in July.


“Keeping Newcastle Pride free at the point of entry is really important so that everyone in the community can attend, no matter their background and events like this really help with that.


“The ball is always popular and this year is no different, so tickets are selling fast and I would advise people to buy tickets soon if they want to make sure they don’t miss out.”


Newcastle Pride takes place 20 – 22 July under a big top tent at Nuns Moor Park, Newcastle with a huge musical line-up, including headliners Alexandra Burke and S Club.
