S Club & Drag Race star set for LCR Pride Knowsley show

S CLUB, Amelia Lily and Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK star Cheryl Hole will headline the major LGBT+ event at the Knowsley Estate this June 

The Knowsley Social, the nine-week festival featuring big name music and family events taking place at the Knowsley Estate this spring and summer, has announced a partnership with LCR Pride Foundation for a one-off LGBT+ summer celebration. 

The event will support the work of LCR Pride Foundation and will take place inside The Knowsley Social’s big top tent, which has been built to hold 1,000 people only.

Families and friends can purchase tickets for VIP pods at the event, which will help raise money for LCR Pride Foundation, the Liverpool City Region’s LGBT+ charity. 

Andi Herring, CEO and co-founder of LCR Pride Foundation said:  “We are incredibly excited for the LGBT+ Social – what a fantastic lineup. While nothing can replace Pride in Liverpool and the many other Prides that have been forced to cancel for a second time due to the pandemic, this event gives the LGBT+ community an opportunity to come together and celebrate safely.

“We would like to thank The Knowsley Social for supporting us by donating a proportion of every ticket sold to the foundation’s work. As a charity, we rely on partnerships like this one and public donations to ensure that we can continue to deliver event and initiatives that support and celebrate the LGBT+ community in the Liverpool City Region.”

Danny Thompson, co-founder of The Knowsley Social, said:  “We are absolutely delighted to be partnering with LCR Pride Foundation for the LGBT+ Social, which will be the first major LGBT+ event to take place in the UK this summer. 

“The LGBT+ Social really is going to give everyone something to look forward to as we head out of lockdown and most importantly, it will raise money for LCR Pride Foundation. I am sure it will also be hugely exciting for members of the LGBT+ community  in the regions who are  missing out on Pride events this year.”

Tickets will go on sale this Friday 16th April at 10am at www.theknowsleysocial.co.uk
