It's Pride Beside the Seaside! 4 June 2019 by Visit Blackpool Pride Blackpool is heading to the most iconic outdoor arena in the land this weekend – directly beneath the world-famous Blackpool Tower! For the first time in its history, the first day of Pride will be staged on the Tower Festival Headland with a star-studded line-up of entertainment. With a theme of “Oh we do like to be beside the seaside”, this year’s festival will begin at 11am on Saturday 8 June with a bigger-than-ever Pride parade starting at South Pier and continuing along the promenade until it reaches the Metropole Hotel. It will be followed by a full day of entertainment on the main stage headlined by Claire Richards (lead singer of Steps) who will be supported by an array of talent including CeCe Peniston, Chesney Hawkes, 911, Sandi Thom and Blackpool's own Betty Legs Diamond! Main stage entertainment will run from midday until approximately 9pm with tickets starting at £10.50. To purchase, click here or call into World Travel Lounge on Birley Street, Blackpool. Tickets can also be purchased on the day outside the main arena. For full weekend activity including the Sunday entertainment on nearby Queen Street, please click here.
