Pride of Place for Older People at Leeds Pride

This weekend sees the 10th annual Leeds Pride event in Leeds and because it is the 10th birthday celebration it is happening over the whole weekend, with events on the Saturday leading up to the main event on Sunday 7th and is the biggest Pride celebration in Yorkshire

This year for the first time there will be a special chill out zone for older people who may want to attend Pride but are put off by the crowds or concerns about access.  This space, funded by Time To Shine will be at Lamberts Yard, Lower Briggate from 11am – 6pm on Sunday.  You can also have a ‘Pride Buddy’ to help you navigate the crowds.  More information about all of this can be found here

There is also a family area outside Malmaison Hotel and at The Tetley

The day usually starts in Millennium Square at around 11.00am with Live Music, Performances, Speeches and a small amount of stalls. At around 2.00pm the Pride Parade sets off with floats, music and a march through Leeds towards Lower Briggate and The Calls,  for a large street party with music, alcohol, a funfair, and street stalls.
