First Norwich Pride


The first Norwich Pride will be on Saturday 25th July 2009. Help us to cover the city in rainbow flags - the international symbol of Pride.

The main celebrations are based around the Forum in the centre of Norwich. There will be stalls, films and lectures inside the Forum throughout the day.

Between 12-2pm there is a Pride Picnic at Chapelfield Gardens. Bring your own food (no alcohol) and enjoy acoustic music on the bandstand, African drumming and Egyptian Dancing workshops, storytelling, facepainting and parachute games.

At 2pm, the Lord Mayor of Norwich, Cllr Evelyn Collishaw, will launch the Pride Parade. It will be led by Norwich Samba band and will weave it's way down Theatre St, Gentleman's Walk, past the Market and City Hall and into Millennium Plain.

At 3pm, we'll have speeches and entertainment on Millennium Plain outside the Forum.
There are Pride Parties in venues across the city throughout the evening and weekend - see our Events Page for more details.

Norwich Pride is organised by a Collective of friendly and enthusiastic volunteers from the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) community. Please get in contact if you can help us in any way or offer us feedback.

The central celebrations are free and inclusive - everyone is invited. Nick O'Brien, the Chair of the Norwich Pride Collective says:

"One of the key aims of Norwich Pride is to ensure that Norwich is a city where everyone feels safe and proud to be themselves. Come and join us - it's going to be a wonderful weekend."
