Norwich Pride: Saturday 26th July




This Saturday sees the city’s sixth annual Pride, a celebration from the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Trans community for everyone.

The key events are free, inclusive and family friendly, so we look forward to seeing thousands of you in the city, helping us to turn Norwich into a Rainbow.

We’ll have our annual parade through the city centre, picnic and entertainments at Chapelfield Gardens and stalls & talks at the Forum.
It’s up to you to make the day as fabulous as possible by painting your face, wearing a colourful outfit, flying the rainbow flag or simply sharing a picnic with friends and family.

It’s a day when everyone can feel safe and proud to be themselves –enjoy!
