SOUTHEND PRIDE IS BACK!
We’re back, better and queerer than ever!
Southend Pride will be hitting the town on
Saturday 17th July 2021
An amazing day of Arts, Culture, Literature, Entertainment, Music, and the biggest
Pride Festival Southend has ever seen.
TURN THE TOWN RAINBOW!
Southend Pride are thrilled to announce that we plan to go ahead with our annual parade and LGBTQ+ celebrations this year, on Saturday 17th July from 12 noon.
Due to the recent public health situation, Southend Pride 2021 will look a little different than other years. Unfortunately, we will not be able to hold our usual Festival in Warrior Square Gardens. However, the Parade along the High Street will take place, as we celebrate coming together as a community once more. And the celebrations do not stop there!
Rainbows will take over the town! Restaurants, bars, cafes and shops will be hosting live events and offering Pride themed treats all afternoon. Street performers will be entertaining the passing crowds and children can enjoy the Kids Space at the Royals Shopping Centre with face painting, games, and arts n crafts.
And of course, Pride would not be Pride without an Official After Party at The Cliff Pub.
As in the past, there will be something for everyone, from poetry to drag shows, from street art to rainbow cakes. So, put the date in your diary - Saturday 17th July, and get those rainbows and sparkles out of lockdown.
We Look forward to seeing you all and finally getting together once again.
Watch this space for updates and news.
WE'RE PROUD ARE YOU?
Coming soon...Keep an eye out!
