Annual Northern Pride

Saturday 22nd July saw the Annual Northern Pride march through Newcastle city centre to the Town Moor, amongst those taking part this year were The Provincial Grand Master, John Paul Thompson and his good lady Andrea, along with The Assistant Provincial Grand Master,John David Watts and many other Durham Freemasons who wished to support Northern Pride.

Durham along with our friends from the neighboring Provinces of Northumberland and Yorkshire North and East Ridings joined together in support of the LGBTQIA+ community some of which are members or family members of the Freemasonry community.

Despite experiencing storm like conditions throughout Saturday over 15,000 people took part part, however the organisers of Northern Pride were forced to close the Festival’s Exhibition Park site on Sunday when it became “hazardous” due to flooding.
