LIVERPOOL PRIDE 2017 OFFICIALLY LAUNCHED WITH FULL PROGRAMME 

Liverpool Pride Festival returns for its eighth consecutive year in July with an exciting star-studded line-up to make the 2017 free event a colourful celebration of all things LGBT+.

The team behind Liverpool Pride officially launched the festival last night (Thursday 22 June) at Signature Living’s Shankly Hotel on Victoria Street, announcing the full programme to invited VIP guests including sponsors, partners and Press.

Organisers were excited to reveal that joining headline act Liverpool’s very own Atomic Kitten for Liverpool Pride Festival 2017 are Kym Mazelle, Livin’ Joy, Marcus Collins, Austin Armacost, and band 5 to 5 from TV series Let It Shine.

Liverpool Pride 2017 takes place across two days – Saturday 29 July and Sunday 30 July – and is returning to the stunning St George’s Quarter for a second year.

The region’s annual festival celebrates all things LGBT+ – and is now one of the major events in the city’s Summer events programme, attracting more than 25,000 people.

The theme of this year’s festival is International Love, complementing the city’s wider 50 Summers of Love festival, which celebrates 50 years since the decriminalisation of homosexuality.

As in previous years, the two-day free spectacular officially begins on Saturday 29 July at 12pm with the empowering Liverpool Pride March, which is open to everyone to participate.

The march will leave from St George’s Plateau, outside the city’s iconic St George’s Hall Liverpool, making its way through the city before returning to Lime Street.

Special guests taking part in the Liverpool Pride March include Matt Rood Mr Gay England and Ben Brown Mr Gay Wales, who will be attending to show their support and meet fans.

Festivalgoers on the Saturday can look forward to three stages, with the headline acts appearing on the Barclays Main Stage – including Atomic Kitten, Kym Mazelle, Livin’ Joy and Austin Armacost.
