Marc Almond for Liverpool Pride
FREE FESTIVAL WILL RETURN TO ST GEORGE’S QUARTER FOR SECOND YEAR
Liverpool Pride Festival has revealed that acclaimed Mersey singer Marc Almond will headline the Summer 2017 event.
The former Soft Cell front man is originally from Southport. He has sold over 30 million records worldwide, and is appearing at Liverpool Pride for the first time just weeks after he celebrates his 60th birthday.
This is the eighth consecutive year of Liverpool Pride, a free two-day event celebrating all things LGBT. This year’s festival takes place on Saturday 29 July and Sunday 30 July 2017 returning to St George’s Quarter for the second year.
Liverpool Pride has grown to become one of the city’s major annual events. Last year, the festival attracted more than 32,000 festivalgoers to celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities.
The theme for Liverpool Pride 2017 is International Love, with organisers spreading the Liverpool message far and wide. Liverpool Pride’s International Love theme will also complement a city-wide season of events and performances to mark the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love. The 50 Summers of Love season will run from May to August 2017.
