Peterborough Pride is set to return and has been extended to run over two weeks.
Pride celebrations will return to Peterborough from Monday June 29 until Sunday July 12, this year for a two week festival of events across the city! As with previous years, Pride will also include a spectacular parade and street party which will take place on Saturday July 12.
“Last year, Pride took the city by storm,” says Simon Green, Chair of Peterborough Pride (pictured far left). “In 2020, we will be building on the success of previous years and am delighted on behalf of everyone involved to announce the dates for this year’s Pride festival.
“We have now extended the festival to run over two weeks, which is a reflection of how much Pride has grown year on year. It’s truly incredible what we have achieved so far, especially as Peterborough was a little late to the Pride party!
“We are now in our third year and have quickly become recognised as one of the up and coming, most happening, inclusive and vibrant Pride events regionally.
“Our focus for 2020 is twofold: to strengthen our local LGBT+ community and showcase LGBT+ talent. Both are additions to our previous aims of building alliances and strengthening visibility.”
