Join us on the day for our first Parade in the Park, where we will welcome everyone to take part from around 3pm onwards.

The activities begin at 12pm in the Community Art Workshop tent (beside the Community Hive tent). Bring your own placards and costumes and get involved with creating artwork to bring the parade to life (spaces may be limited).

From 3pm, join hundreds of people in a parade of pride, celebration and protest around the Jesus Green park. We welcome everyone to take part.

There is no requirement to apply in advance. Just turn up and join in.
