Pride Classical - A Pride Stage Premiere

Following on from the Pride Classical premieres at Manchester's Bridgewater Hall and Blackpool's Tower Ballroom in June 2023, we are now thrilled to bring the show to a Pride stage for the first time.

Event organisers, LCR Pride Foundation, have confirmed that Pride in Liverpool’s main stage will return to the city’s waterfront site after a year hiatus and will not only play host to the free Saturday community-led festival, but also Pride Classical’s world-class orchestra and talent for a specially commissioned show.

The Line-Up

An ensemble of star LGBTQ+ artists and an orchestra take to the stage to perform the best Pride anthems of the last 50 years in this dazzling event.

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Season 4 Winner and Liverpool-born drag artist Danny Beard is set to host the spectacle. Blending their hilarious Scouse wit with superstar talent and a powerhouse voice, Danny adds an extra layer of class – and camp – to the event. 

Danny will be supported by Jerry Springer The Musical’s Alison Jiear. With numerous West End credits including her current appearances in Sister Act, Alison is a regular soloist with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the Hallé Orchestra. One further star performer is yet to be announced.


The limited first-release tickets for Pride Classical are now on sale priced at £25 plus booking fee. VIP experiences are also on sale. Tickets and more details about the VIP experiences will be available via

All proceeds from ticket sales for Pride Classical will go towards funding Pride in Liverpool on the following day, Saturday, 27 July, and ensure that the community-led festival remains free for all to attend.  

Andi Herring, CEO of LCR Pride Foundation, said: “We are thrilled to bring Pride Classical to the city as part of the Pride in Liverpool festival this year. It is a truly spectacular event that showcases the best of LGBTQ+ talent whilst uplifting our community’s voice. Buying a ticket to Pride Classical not only promises you an unforgettable night, but it also supports us in delivering Pride in Liverpool and keeping the event free for everyone – something that remains a top priority for us at LCR Pride Foundation.”

Pride Classical co-creator Ben Hudson said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be joining Pride in Liverpool 2024 to kick off the opening night of the celebrations! The singers are beyond incredible, and we have designed DJ-style sets so we can build the energy, keep the party going and also to move you. It's going to be incredibly special for so many of us LGBTQI+ musicians being able to perform together for you, sharing the same energy, passion and connection to the music with you all".
