He said: “After hosting behind a screen for the last two years, we are delighted to be returning with an in-person festival and I can’t think of a better line-up to kick off the weekend.

“Like many charities, we’ve been hit hard by the pandemic and for that reason this year’s fundraiser is more important than ever – with 100 per cent of the profits going towards building and delivering the festival weekend.

“We have an amazing night planned with more acts still to come, so we hope that those who are able to will come out in their thousands to enjoy the show, with the knowledge that they are also helping us reach our goal of remaining the largest free Pride festival weekend in the UK.”
