Newcastle Pride, sponsored by business improvement district NE1, has teamed up with Manchester Airport to offer one lucky winner a £2000 voucher to spend on accommodation and flights to the popular destination.
And time is running out to purchase a raffle ticket to enter, with the competition coming to a close on 27 May when the winner will be announced at popular Newcastle cabaret club, Boulevard.
Patrick Alexander, Head of Marketing at Manchester Airport, said: “With more than 210 direct routes to choose from at Manchester Airport, we have picked one of our newest and most exciting for this competition.
“We are delighted to be back with Newcastle Pride for our second year and I am sure everyone will love the acts on our Manchester Airport San Francisco Stage over the weekend.
“I’d like to wish everyone good luck in the competition and cannot wait to meet the winner.”
Stephen Willis, festival director of Newcastle Pride, said: “This is a fantastic prize which was generously supplied by Manchester Airport and San Francisco is an amazing place to visit.
“We’re fast approaching the end of the competition but there is still time for people to enter to have a chance of winning an amazing prize.
“All the money raised will go to LGBTQ charity, Northern Pride, to fund future events and keep Newcastle Pride free.”
San Francisco is home to the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island – the site of the infamous former prison – and The Castro, one of the first gay neighbourhoods in the United States.
This year’s Newcastle Pride takes place 20 -22 July at Nuns Moor, with Alexandra Burke and S Club headlining the Manchester Airport Main Stage and Gareth Gates, Jack and Joel and Jordan Gray also performing over the weekend, with more acts to be announced.
Raffle tickets cost £1 and can be purchased from Boulevard, Church Street or the Newcastle Pride office at Dance City, Temple Street.
The prize can be redeemed up until the end of August 2019 and full terms and conditions are available on the Newcastle Pride website.
