The line-up for Cheshire East Council’s Pride in the Park 2020 event has been announced and there are some big acts leading the way, as it moves into its third year.
The headline act for the event at Queens Park, Crewe on Saturday 20 June, is Bang Bang Romeo. The Doncaster three piece supported Pink last year on her European tour playing in front of huge crowds throughout the summer. They recently released their debut album, ‘A Heartbreaker’s Guide to the Galaxy.’
Sam Callahan will also be appearing on the day at Queens Park. Sam was an X Factor finalist on the tenth series of the talent show and has become more and more involved in the LGBT+ scene, having performed at Pride events around the world. He’s also enjoying a prolific modelling career and has been on the front cover of Gay Times twice.
Danny Beard is another big crowd-puller who will be at this year’s Cheshire East event. He is a performer, singer and cabaret artist who made his name as Drag Idol winner in 2015, before going on to be a semi-finalist on Britain’s Got Talent the following year.
Councillor Jill Rhodes Cheshire East Council cabinet member for public health and corporate services, said: “It’s brilliant news to be having all these top quality acts performing at our Cheshire East Pride event in Crewe and I know that residents and visitors will come in their numbers to support the day.”
There will also be DJs, a magician and an opportunity for an open mic competition winner to appear at the Queens Park Pride event.
The council’s first open mic event for Pride will be held at Tom’s Tap and Brewhouse on Thomas Street in Crewe on Sunday 29 March from 3pm. That event will be compered by William Read, who himself enjoyed success as part of the group ‘The Showbears’ on Britain’s Got Talent. Anyone can come along and have a go, it doesn’t matter what your act is!
Councillor Stewart Gardiner, Cheshire East Council member equality champion, said: “I’m really looking forward to Cheshire East Pride mark three. Following on from two previous successful events I am sure this year’s will be even better. I am particularly excited to see that we are attracting a crop of current stars to our event.”
