The partying continued in Manchester’s Gay Village for the Pride Big Weekend’s annual music extravaganza.

And last night it was the turn of girlband the Sugababes then former X Factor winner Alexandra Burke to entertain the masses.

Thousands of revellers have packed in to the Gaydar main arena over the bank holiday weekend, where on Saturday night chart-toPixie Lottpping star Pixie Lott was the main attraction.

Pixie, wearing a rainbow-emblazoned top, pink hotpants and a plastic bow-tie, performed a special acoustic set of her previous hits, including Mama Do and Cry Me Out, as well as new single All About Tonight.

She also surprised fans with a couple of cover versions, including Coldplay’s Fix You and Stevie Wonder’s Isn’t She Lovely.

Pixie told the M.E.N.: “Pride is such an amazing event, it’s an event where everyone can be themselves and be proud to be individuals.

“Manchester is always an amazing crowd so I was really excited to be here this year.”

The Big Weekend had kicked off on Friday night with performances by diva Angie Brown and comedy Aussie air hostess Pam Ann.

This year, for the first time, organisers have installed a big screen next to the mainstage to give fans a better view of the music acts, and as Pride celebrates its 21st birthday a huge “21” lighting rig has been the backdrop.

The music continues today with a packed line-up of Pride favourites.

Highlights are set to include the 80s punk queen Toyah Wilcox, TV band Four Poofs and a Piano, the Bucks Fizz trio of Cheryl Baker, Mike Nolan and Jay Aston and former X Factor star Rowetta.

Newly-reunited boyband Blue, fresh from their Eurovision exploirs, are set to take to the stage at 8pm to bring this year’s Pride to a close.
