Bananarama are the latest act to be announced to perform at Brighton and Hove Pride 2020.

Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward will be joining headliner Mariah Carey on Saturday (August, 1) at the FABULOSO Pride In The Park event.

Brighton Pride said the pair, who are one of pop’s most influential and revered groups, are perfect for the celebration, building their career on being ‘mould-breakers’.

Their success saw them listed in the Guinness World Records for achieving the world’s highest number of chart entries by an all-female group.

Between 1982 and 2009, they had 28 singles reach the Top 50 of the UK Singles Chart and memorable Top 10s hits such as “Nathan Jones”, “Robert De Niro’s Waiting…”, “Cruel Summer”, “Venus”, and “Love in the First Degree”.

Their latest album “In Stereo”, got into the Top 30 in the UK in last year.

Organisers said 2020 is the 30th anniversary of Brighton & Hove Pride culminating in a weekend of campaigning, celebrating and fundraising for LGBTQ+ and community projects in Brighton & Hove over 1st & 2nd August 2020.
