3 – 5pm Pride Show on Millenium Plain
From the island of Ibiza to the club scene in Norwich, we welcome the lovely Jacqui to host this year’s Pride show.
Whether you have partied with her in the night or seen her sass during the day, we promise that the stage will have your attention locked for the whole afternoon.
Sing with Pride are joining with other community choirs and singers from across the county to bring us an Abba Mash-Up!
Rosebud is a new Drag and Burlesque themed night. This rag-tag band of queens are taking the Norwich night scene by storm and will be taking to the Pride stage to give you a big, fat taste of what to expect from a night at Rosebud. Expect beards and beauty. Giving face, lacking taste, looks to kill and (hairy) legs for days. Party and play, sashay and slay.
Parallel Dance Studios will be taking to the Pride stage to perform street and contemporary dance routines and their own version of Chandelier. They are really looking forward to performing at Pride this year and hope the crowd will be shaking their stuff too.
British singer-songwriter Mila Falls is really looking forward to performing her new single I Wanna Know at Norwich Pride – it’s a song she wrote with producer Marc Vedo (Boy George’s best mate). Her song Oh My was a Smash Of The Week on BBC 1Xtra and Mila’s career has taken her on adventures recently supporting Ella Eyre, Van Morrison, UB40, Ringo Starr, Rick Astley and VV Brown. With two tours of Ibiza in the calendar, 2015 is set to be a big year for Mila!
This year’s Pride Show sound will be provided by Pig & Rig who will also be running a BBQ!
