We are very excited to be presenting the thirteenth Norwich Pride this year, which will take place on (with the weeks leading up to) Saturday 31st July. We will be mixing our online content with new ways to reach out to the Norwich and Norfolk LGBT+ community, our friends, families and allies in ways that will keep everyone engaged and safe.
This year we are presenting three strands of Pride activity, and, for the first time, our new Norwich Pride Inspired strand which is where you (or a community group or business) could hold your own event, inspired by and officially endorsed by us!
Our Pride Pop-Up Shop will be at the Chantry Shopping Centre from Monday 26th to Saturday 31st July, every day from 10-4pm. It’s on the Lower Ground Floor, near Boots. Pop along and pick up a copy of the Pride Guide and buy your rainbow flags and goodies.
Check out the What’s On listings below.

The Big Warm Up

A Pride favourite way to start the day, to get your blood pumping with a fun Zumba dance routine. Leg warmers optional!
The session will be led by Yendell’s Health and Wellness Hub.
Rainbow Baking and Cake Decorating Demonstration
We love a bit of cake, whether it’s full of butter, sugar, and cream or wheat-free, gluten-free or vegan, as long as it looks like a rainbow! This cookery demonstration will guide you through the steps necessary to bake your own creation with a special guest baker! Check out the Norwich Pride at Home page of our website for the recipe here.
Fancy something a bit fruity? Short or tall? This cocktail making class will tickle all your fancies, from a menagerie of spirits to a non-alcoholic Mocktail, leaving you both shaken and stirred. Check out the Norwich Pride at Home page for a list of ingredients so you’re ready in advance here.
12noon – 1pm

We have fantastic guests once again this year. Peter Tatchell, Asifa Lahore, Lisa McIntyre and Josh Rivers are this year’s panel in our annual Pride Question Time event.
Virtual Pride March
Our March is an integral part of the day – it shows solidary, strength in numbers and community and you can be part of it! Open to individuals, families, neighbours, businesses, groups, schools, and pets.
You could take part in it! Send us your video or photo to appear in our special film! Read more
Pride Show Live!
It’s the time to bring the party to Pride! Join us all afternoon for song, laughs, charm, glitter, and incredibly sour puns. Pride Show Live! will once again be hosted by official Pride Diva and the region’s supreme queen of the stage and shower-screen, Titania Trust, who will be nonsensically joined by Dame Vesta Bules.
Keep in touch with us on the socials @norwichpride.
