Norwich Pride returns on Saturday, July 27 and as well as coinciding with Norfolk Day this year is also extra special as it marks 50 years since the Stonewall Riots.

The fun begins from 10am with stalls and entertainment in Chapelfield Gardens and The Forum and there will be speeches from the Lord Mayor and the Chair of Norwich Pride from City Hall at 12.45pm.

The main event of the day is the Pride March which leaves cCity Hall at 1pm and will feature the Vibe City Street Brass and the Norwich Samba Band.

This year, there will be three pride flags and Pride Cymru have also loaned their 30-metre transgender flag and there will also be an original Gilbert Baker Flag who was the man that designed the first rainbow flag at the San Francisco Gay Freedom Day Parade in 1978.
