Thousands join the colourful celebrations for Notts Pride

Notts Pride success

Thousands of people turned Nottingham city centre into a sea of rainbow colours at this year’s celebrations.

Spectators lined the streets in Nottingham city centre for the Notts Pride event on July 30. A vibrant march kicked off the event which culminated in an afternoon of fun, dancing and laughter as a talented line-up of performers dazzled the crowds.

The spectacular procession of colour and noise made its way through the streets to Broad Street. More than 50 market stalls on neighbouring roads were hosted by organisations in support of the community. Performers at Notts Pride included comedy cabaret favourites Scream Queenz and David Bowie tribute band Miss Bowie. YouTube comedy star Charity Shop Sue also performed a DJ set.

Notts Pride was organised and run by a team of dedicated volunteers. They worked closely with Nottingham City Council. This year’s event, with the theme ‘We See You’ supported the region’s LGBTQ+ community, was bigger and better than ever.

This year’s festivities marked the city’s first full Pride event since the pandemic. Last year’s scaled-back celebration saw 9,000 people flock to the city. This Notts Pride was a huge success for the city.

“The atmosphere was joyful and so many people have told us what a great time they had. It was wonderful to be back in full force,” said Nottinghamshire Pride chair Leigh Ellis.
