Liverpool Pride charity are pleased to announce news of a special fundraising event at city centre venue Amanzi on Water Street on Saturday 1st August, the evening of Liverpool’s official Pride event.

In keeping with this year’s publically voted winning theme Love Is No Crime, The Liverpool Pride Ball and Chain Fundraiser is an evening of live entertainment in sparkling surroundings. Tickets are just £10 in advance and includes a welcome drink on arrival to the event.

The event which is being organised in partnership with Soul Inspired Events will include a host of Liverpool’s hottest and freshest talent, including the 2015 Out On Stage finalists Skylights and Jess Kemp, plus this year’s winner Shamona. Out On Stage is a live music competition organised by the Michael Causer Foundation and which is now in its third year, with the winner securing a place to play at Liverpool Pride among other festivals.

More acts are still to be announced.

Liverpool Pride recently announced a down-size in this year’s event due to lack of funding with the Pride March and Michael Causer Vigil remaining the key events of the Pride weekend. Joan Burnett, a trustee at Liverpool Pride said “We would love as many people as possible to come along and support us at Amanzi, we have a great night of entertainment planned and all will go towards ensuring we can continue to hold a Liverpool Pride in the future. We are encouraging all to come along in their Love Is No Crime outfits for our Ball and Chain fundraiser, get your tickets fast as the venue is limited in capacity and only 250 tickets will go on advance sale.”
