Promising to be the most vibrant yet, with performers from all over the world taking part in the LGBT celebration, Swindon and Wiltshire Pride in Old Town Gardens will be awash with the colours of the rainbow.
One of the hosts of this year’s event in Town Gardens will be musical theatre artist Sam Wearing, who unexpectedly hosted some of the main stage at last year’s Pride, even though he was originally scheduled to perform only a short set.
Another act will be Heat, which was formed in 1996 by childhood friends, Simon Cruse (lead singer) and keyboard player, Mark Langley.
Swindon’s own DJ Burnout will be expressing his passion for electronic music in order to entertain the crowds and the Keri Whip will also be on hand to display her incredible vocal stylings.
All this, together with great food and bar areas, will make this a festival to remember.
The Pride parade starts at 11.15am in Springfield Road and will make its way to Town Gardens, with late arrivals free to carry on the tradition of trying to keep a costume in place whilst running after the procession.
