Pride Cymru, the Welsh LGBT charity is proud to welcome performer Lucy Spraggan back to Wales this April to perform a fundraising gig for the charity. Pride Cymru is typically known for the lively and colourful festival held in August, but works all year round with projects that support LGBT+ people in Wales and drive for the elimination of hate crime.
The singer-writer had a fantastic reaction when she performed at last year Pride Cymru event on August 13th to thousands of people. Her set even had an added surprise when Lucy helped fan Kirstie Evans propose live on stage to her girlfriend Katy using some of Lucy’s own song lyrics.
Pride Deputy Event Director, Gavin Wilson has said ‘Lucy was fantastic at Pride last year and we are really excited to bring her back to Wales this year. Pride Cymru would like to thank Lucy for her support to the charity.’
Lucy found fame after auditioning for the X Factor in 2012 with her own composition ‘Last Night’. Even though she had to quit the show due to illness, she was the first contestant in the show’s history to score a Top 40 single and album before the live shows even aired with her independently released album Top Room At The Zoo. Lucy is currently touring with her acoustic set around the UK. The fundraising gig on the 15th April at The Students Union, Cardiff University however will be the only Welsh Venue that Lucy will play whilst on tour.
Drag superstar Mary Mac will be performing as support to Lucy plus local artist’s Tom Auton and Jolene Dover.
