Returning for its twelfth year, Leicester Pride 2022 is set to take place on Saturday 3rd September and is the annual celebration of the LGBTQ+ community in and around the city. Like previous years, the festival is set to take place in Victoria Park after the procession navigating its way through the city centre.
There will be a variety of food and drink available on the day with market stalls for everyone to browse and purchase from local and national businesses, all proud to affiliate themselves with the LGBTQ+ community. On site, there will also be a selection on fairground rides and games provided by Billy Bates & Sons fun fair.
Although the Leicester Pride event has been running for twelve years, the current team overseeing the event have been running it since 2001, building it up from a small event based in the city to a full scale event which includes the parade and the final celebration at Victoria Park. The event is free to attend and is family-friendly with attractions and entertainment suitable for all ages.
The main stage features live singers, dance acts and cabaret from across the country whilst the DJ tent features the best local DJs. Previous acts include Sam Bailey, Blazing Squad, Lisa Lashes, Keiron Richardson, PJ Brennan, Diva Fever, Addict Dance, Miss Penny, Ms Marty, Thunderpussy and many more.
The Leicester Pride event is attended by more than 10,000 people each year, with more than 2,000 taking part in the parade through the city. If you’re planning on visiting the city to celebrate and need somewhere to hang your party hats, then Holiday Inn Leicester Wigston has a lovely selection of rooms and customisable amenities to really make your stay personable to you.
