Thousands of people are expected to descend on a Wiltshire town to celebrate Pride.

Last year crowds of nearly 4,000 people were drawn to Chippenham to celebrate the town’s landmark first full celebration of Pride month.

This year the organisers have planned for the celebration to be “bigger and better”.

They have now released an updated line-up for the event, which will take place in Monkton Park on Saturday, June 15.

The main arena gates will open at 11am but participants in the Pride Walk from the Buttercross to Island Park can gather from 10.30am, with the walk set to kick off at noon.

Those hoping to take part will have to register ahead of time.

Visitors to the main stage, sponsored by Good Energy and Siemens, will be treated to 11 hours of entertainment, kicking off at 11am.

The show will be closed by Miss Lightning with performances from the Voice UK’s Clare Cordell, Concrete Prairie and Madonna tribute Laura King scheduled throughout the day.

The education stage will feature talks about LGBTQIA+ issues from 2pm to 5pm while a range of organisations can be found in the well-being tent.

There will also be a Pride Market boasting dozens of stallholders and a range of food and bar venues.

A “colourful” after party will be hosted by E11evn.
