Norwich’s annual pride parade and celebrations have been cancelled amid the coronavirus crisis.
Norwich Pride, the annual citywide celebration of the city’s diverse LGBT+ community, was scheduled to go ahead on July 25 and was set to feature parades, live music and stalls.
However, in response to the Covid-19 outbreak, these aspects of the event have now been cancelled.
Organisers are instead encouraging members of the whole community to find other innovative ways of celebrating the occasion - from virtual events to flag trails.

But we all know Norwich is an unique place and our reaction to this situation will also be unique.”
Ideas to mark the occasion include flying flags, holding virtual events and sharing colourful photographs through social media to spread the message of peace, love and acceptance.
