Venues across the city are preparing to celebrate Norwich Pride later this month.

Norwich Pride will take place on Saturday, July 30 and highlights include a colourful parade celebrating diversity at 1pm from Millennium Plain to Chapelfield Gardens and a party for all in the city park.

Lots of Norwich venues are also hosting events on the day and everyone is welcome.

Andy Futter, chairman of Norwich Pride, said: 'In the wake of the dreadful attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando earlier this year, it's more vital than ever that our LGBT+ pubs and clubs provide safe spaces for the community.

'The venues in Norwich are welcoming to everyone who is respectful and understands that they help provide a vital sense of identity to our LGBT+ community.'

Below are some of the venues holding events on July 30.

The Castle Pub, in Spitalfields - a barbecue throughout the evening plus drag queens Miss Penny and Cosmic will be on stage later in the night and DJ James Buckenham will be providing the music.
