What a spectacular weekend!

On Saturday, 29th July 2017, Gay Abandon took part in the “I Feel Love” concert at Hull City Hall, organised by the wonderful folks at BBC Radio 2.

The concert was the culmination of a week of events, celebrating 50 years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in the UK, organised by the Capital of Culture organisers (hull2017.co.uk).

The concert was live on the BBC Red Button and BBC Radio 2 on Saturday night. It is now available on iPlayer until 28th August, so check it out! I’m sure you’ll agree that we had a blast!
