Pride in London is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising in New York that kick-started the modern Pride movement across the world.
The #PrideJubilee theme will honour 50 years of queer revolt from activism and protests to the victories that have made the movement what it is today. Celebrate the #PrideJubilee with the Pride in London Festival throughout Pride month leading up to the grand finale, the parade on Saturday 6 July.
More than one million attended the Pride in London parade 2018 and this year is set to be even bigger. Join in from 12:00 as the Pride in London parade works it way down from Portland Place towards Oxford Circus, Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square, before finishing on Whitehall. This free event will fill the streets of central London with colour, music, dancing and fabulous outfits.
For more information about the festival and parade, visit the Pride in London website.
How do I get to the Pride in London parade?
It’s easy to get to the Pride in London parade with SWR. Get a train to London Waterloo from across the south and south west of England.
Then take TfL’s Bakerloo line to one of these stops where you can see the parade and get involved:
- Charing Cross – for the Trafalgar Square party with a line-up including Billy Porter and Becky Hill
- Piccadilly Circus – for the Soho street parties, Cabaret Stage and World area
- Oxford Circus – for a quieter parade view and the Soho street parties
Things to do in London
Once all the festivities finish at 19:30, there’s plenty of after parties to head to across the capital that’ll keep the party going through the night. For a free night out, East London's drag hothouse The Glory are taking over the National Theatre's River Stage on the South Bank. But if you’re looking for a quieter evening and don’t want to go back just yet, there’s lots to enjoy around London Waterloo and the South Bank.
