The agency has produced the event for the past seven years but will now not have to pitch for the 2010 and 2011 events.

Pride's Big Weekend drew more than 40,000 lesbian, gay and transgender people and their friends to Manchester for music and revelry in a carefully controlled ‘safe environment'.

Little Boots, Bananarama, The Human League and Peter Andre were among the performers.

Pride's Big Weekend is one of Manchester's biggest event-led annual attractions and involves the construction of more than three kilometres of security fencing around the city's famous gay village, turning a whole district of the city centre into one big ticketed party zone.
