Nadine, who was one fifth of chart-mauling, award-winning, expectation-shattering girl band Girls Aloud, has already played her part in helping redefine pop and now she has a successful solo career in her own right. Guests can expect a mixture of the old classics and Nadine’s new material.

Gok was a huge hit at The Big Weekend 2017 and now he will take to the stage as resident DJ for the evening.

He first came to fame in the UK as a fashion stylist and style consultant. Gok has always been a lover of all music genres, but in particular Gok has an extensive knowledge of 90s vocal house and loves playing DJ sets to fun loving crowds around the UK. His music moto is simple – “Old Skool Always!”

The gala dinner will once again bring together, business leaders, sponsors, individual supporters, community champions and celebrities to raise money for The Manchester Pride Fund.

Mark Fletcher, Chief Executive at Manchester Pride, said: “The Manchester Pride Spring Benefit is an integral part of our fundraising calendar and promises to be a great night with incredible performances and first class food.

“We look forward to seeing more of the business community join us this year. Whilst an LGBT fundraiser, we don’t just welcome members of the LGBT business community, but also supporters and ambassadors who want to enjoy a really good night out, network and help us raise money at the same time.”

The Manchester Pride Spring Benefit exists to raise money for the Manchester Pride Fund. Integral to creating and sustaining a vibrant community, this fund provides crucial support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender people in Greater Manchester.
