Organisers of Leicester Pride have today announced that boy band Union J will headline Leicester Pride 2017 on Saturday 2 September at Victoria Park.

The band have had four UK Top 10 singles since their appearance on X Factor and appeared in the summer blockbuster film Kick Ass 2. They will perform all their hit singles including ‘You Got It All’ and ‘Carry You’.

The announcement follows recent news that Leicester Pride 2017 will go ahead following major funding from De Montfort University’s #DMULocal programme.

More acts are expected to be announced in the coming weeks as the Leicester Pride committee works to confirm the full line up for this year’s event.

Leicester Pride is a registered charity that promotes and celebrates the LGBT community. The festival is now in its 9th year under the current team and provides a variety of entertainment including live music, DJs, food and drink, market stalls and fairground rides.

The event begins with a colourful parade through the city centre of more than 2,000 people including representatives from the Leicestershire Constabulary, Leicestershire Fire & Rescue and Leicester City Football Club.

The festival site on Victoria Park opens at 12 noon and over 10,000 people are expected to attend.

Martyn Parker, committee chairmen said “Leicester Pride is a family-friendly, inclusive event and we welcome everyone to join us in celebrating the LGBT community at Victoria Park on Saturday 2nd September.”
