More details are being released of the pleasures to be had at the massive Pride Reunion Weekender set to happen this November at the UK's biggest holiday centre.

Following the success of this year's Pride events around the country, Brighton entertainment group E3 came up with the idea of putting together a spectacular weekender which would recreate some of the excitement and enjoyment of the summer celebrations. It's all happening at the UK's biggest holiday resort Butlin's in Minehead in Somerset which boasts an indoor sub-tropical waterworld complete with water shoots and rides, and the event is taking over the whole centre.

Just announced are a host of clubbing options. There'll be pop and dance super-clubs Wild Fruit and Nightingale, hard dance options Crash and Beyond, plus an array of alternatives including Popstarz, XXL and Queer Nation. Wild Fruit are club coordinators for the weekend, so expect a high level of production, sound and visuals, plus of course the infamous go-go boys! Paul Kemp from Wild Fruit has promised a “spectacular party”.
In addition to all these fab clubbing options, Pride Reunion will also host a varied and all-inclusive entertainment programme, including major pop acts like Bananarama, comedy and cabaret hosted by Lola Lasagne, Lucky Balls Bingo hosted by Dame Margot Hamilton plus the biggest gay speed-date ever in the UK.

It's all happening between 18th and 21st November and ticket prices start at £160 per person, which includes both accommodation, access to all the clubs and all the other on-site entertainment for the entire three days and nights of fun. If you book before Friday 30th September then you can save 10% on the regular price. For every booking made £5 will go to regional Pride organisations too.
