TOP LIVE EVENTS
Pride in London, variously and previously known as London Pride
and Pride London, is the UK capital’s entry into the summer pride
festival calendar, hosting a series of events across the city over a
2 week period in mid to late June each year.
The highlight of Pride in London is of course the pride parade, which covers a route through the city that takes in many of London’s most iconic sights, including Oxford Street, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square and Whitehall, making this one of the longer pride parade routes anywhere in the world.
The Pride in London parade attracts crowds estimated at over 1 million people out onto the city’s streets to watch the hundreds of bright and colourful floats and walking groups from many organizations, accompanied by constant wall of noise form a variety of live music performers.
The parade steps off from Baker Street at 1pm and follows a route
through the city as follows:
Lower Regent Street
Trafalgar Square also hosts the main event of the day, with a stage set up for speeches and live musical performances throughout the day.
