Every year the LGBT community in Leicester comes together to march through the city centre in a vibrant parade that marks the beginning of the festival.

We invite everyone to join us on the parade, although we ask that larger groups register via the website so that we can plan the order and layout.

Please note that no glass bottles are allowed on the parade and much of the route runs through the cities alcohol free zones.

The exact route of the parade will be announced closer the event, but usually starts near the Curve theatre and passes by the clock Tower, through The Lanes shopping area and onto New Walk towards Victoria Park.
