Filey pub to host Gay Pride event

FILEY will host one of the headline events for Gay Pride – a weekend of events celebrating the borough’s rich diversity.

It will take place from Saturday September 3 with a barbecue and entertainment at the Station Pub in Filey, culminating in a picnic and live music in Peasholm Park on Sunday September 4 from 11am to 5pm.

Karen Chapman, chairperson of the planning group said: “We’re working hard this year to make 2011’s Gay Pride bigger, better and more fun than ever before.

“We are pleased to announce that the UK’s hot new male pop act AJ will be performing at Peasholm Park on the Sunday of the Pride weekend.”

AJ joins the line up in Peasholm Park along with Kathy Bloom and Pink tribute act I’m Not P!nk.

Rachel Bennett, vice chairperson, said: “There’ll be lots of stalls and activities going on so there’ll be something for everyone.

“Scarborough is a brilliant place to visit so come and join us for Pride. More performers will be announced soon so watch this space.”
