The Halloween Ball will take place on Friday, October 29 at Newcastle's Crowne Plaza.

Organisers are hoping that attendees embrace the Halloween atmosphere and come dressed up for a fright.

During the night there will be live performances from singer/songwriter Tipps and cabaret from Bonnie and the Bonnettes.

Drag king Stevie Wonderful, crowned as the first-ever National Drag King of the Castle, will be taking to the stage along with a playlist of popular hits covered by live band Royal Beats.

Ste Dunn, Director of Northern Pride, believes it will be a night to remember.

He said: "We’re delighted to be planning to return of our annual fundraiser and we couldn’t resist the opportunity to make it a Halloween Ball this year.

“The committee has pulled out all of the stops this year to organise a really fantastic lineup of performers, who are sure create a real party atmosphere.

“It’s going to be different from any event we’ve held before and a brilliant way to celebrate Halloween in style, so it’s definitely going to be a night that guests won’t want to miss.”

Money raised from the event will go towards supporting Northern Pride’s campaigns and outreach work, along with helping to keep the annual festival weekend free to attend.

Tickets are £35 per person, the fee including a reception drink and a three-course meal, and can be purchased here.
