PLANS for the official Southampton Pride Warm Up Party have been announced.

Held at The Brook in Portswood on Saturday August 19, Abba Fever will help get partygoers in the mood for the annual festival.

It takes place between 8pm and 1am.

As previously reported by the Daily Echo, more than double the numbers of last year's event are set to march through the city in celebration of gay, lesbian, transsexual and bisexual rights.

The event, which will be held on August 26, will feature entertainment from 80s pop legends Sinitta and Sonia.
