Pride Cymru’s BIG Weekend line-up announced!

August 15, 2018

Courtney Act, Gabrielle, Saara Aalto, SuRie, The Sundaes, Angie Brown and Hazel Dean are among performers appearing at Pride Cymru’s BIG Weekend from August 24-26.

On Saturday, August 25, a parade will take place around the streets of Cardiff, which will see 10,000 people walk the mile-long route in the city center. Families, individuals, groups and organisations are all welcome to join the parade to showcase diversity and equality across Wales.

The theme for this year’s event is #ProudToBeMe. The campaign aims to encourage members of LGBT+ communities and beyond to use their voice and be proud of their identity.

40,000 people are expected to attend the event on Cardiff City Lawns over the BIG Weekend in the celebration of inclusivity and diversity, staged annually by Pride Cymru.

There will also be entertainment from Glee Comedy Club, a Cabaret Stage, a UV Roller Disco, a Bingo Lingo takeover and beach party. As well as this, there will be food, drink and market stalls at the family event, which will run on August Bank Holiday weekend.

Scott Davies, Pride Cymru’s Big Weekend’s Event Director, said: “This is the biggest event in our calendar, and we’re so pleased to bring the public such amazing and talented performers this year. We can’t wait to enjoy the weekend with our incredible community.”

In a speech at the campaign’s launch last month, Pride Cymru’s Chair, Lu Thomas, said: “Pride Cymru reflects who we are as a community and as a nation. It is a celebration of equality, a commitment to ensure that everyone is able to live their lives free of hate.”
