reading-pride-logoSince the first Reading Pride festival in 2003 attendance has grown steadily year on year. In the festival’s inaugural year, there were 2,500 visitors; in 2013 numbers grew to 5,000 on the festival site at one time with over and above 10,000 people visiting the event throughout the day including over 300 participating in the parade.

This year’s event takes place on 20th August at Kings Meadow Park. The theme is ‘Musicals’ so think Wizard of Oz, Sound of Music or Evita. The festival takes place at Kings Meadow from midday and runs all the way throughout the day. It is free to enter and there is a vibrant marketplace as well as two stages featuring the best in local entertainment as well as some big-name acts. There is also a bar, a youth zone, a Members and VIP area as well as a funfair.

Reading Pride is run entirely by volunteers who work all the way through the year to make the event happen. Please donate as much as you can afford to volunteers shaking buckets on the day. And if you want to be a member of the team for 2015, visit the website and find out more! www.readingpride.co.uk
