Margate Pride, which is now in its fourth and most fabulous year, is being hosted from the 6th to the 10th of August, with a parade and street party on the 10th to end the week-long festivities, events and celebrations.
With live performances, art exhibitions, workshops, a parade and even an after-party till 3 am, you’ll never want the day to end!
Here’s what the lovely organisers of Margate Pride have said on their website:
‘Margate Pride CIC is a not for profit community interest company led by LGBTQIA artists to celebrate the diversity of love in Margate. We are currently developing relationships with schools, residential homes, community groups, local businesses and individuals throughout the town to make it an essential part of the fabric of the town.
Margate Pride is not just a parade for the day. It’s an expression of the whole community. We really want you to make it your own. Margate Pride has an authentic homemade feel that represents the quirky, creative DIY aesthetic of our town. Expect homemade bunting and upcycled costumes rather than corporate branding.
Tell your friends; everyone is welcome!’
The Margate Pride Parade begins in Cliftonville and ends at Margate Main Sands – make sure you register before you march, otherwise you will not be allowed to march at the parade.
