Fans can expect to hear Girls Aloud classics from “Sound of the Underground” to “Call the Shots” and “Something Kinda Ooooh” to “Something New” as well as her solo (and underrated) material.
Unfortunately the parade – a central feature of Pride events around the world – won’t take place, with organisers saying: “We feel it is most responsible and safest not to have a parade this year.”
