Pride in London

Welcome to the Pride Festival bursting with entertaining events

It’s now less than a month until Pride in London 2018, which is on Saturday 7 July. But this year Pride is much more than just that one day and we are already in the middle of the Pride Festival, which started last week and runs until the big day. Here’s a look at just a few of the events that make up this exciting festival of all things LGBT+.

The idea of the Pride Festival is to include as many different areas of the LGBT+ community as possible, and in so doing it widens the appeal and makes Pride in London even more accessible and guarantees that it’s fit to bursting with entertaining and thought provoking events. There really is something
for everyone and here’s a list of just some of
these events.
