Southampton Pride is one of the fastest-growing pride events in the South, and this year it's bigger than ever. S-Club lead the lineup on the stage, as well as a tribute to the icon that is Lady Gaga. There's also appearances from RuPaul's Drag Race's Charlie Hides, Felix Shepherd from the XFactor, and Joe Black.
This year the parade route has been extended, running from Guildhall Square to Palmerston Park, and on to Houndwell Park, East Street, High Street, and Above Bar Street. This free event will fill the streets of Southampton with colour, music, dancing and fabulous outfits.
We're proud to be an official partner of Southampton Pride - check out our Pride walkway at Southampton station, and look out for us in the parade!

Things to do in Southampton
Once all the festivities finish at 17:00, there’s plenty of places to go. If you’re looking for a quieter evening and don’t want to go back just yet, there’s lots to enjoy around Southampton. But for the party animals, there's the official Southampton Pride After Party, plus a number of unofficial ones if you know where to look.
