Swindon_LogoSwindon Pride was launched in 2008, with the first ever Pride festival being held in the town. In 2009, the Pride event was expanded to incorporate Swindon & Wiltshire Pride. This year will be the 8th event to be held in the Town Gardens in Swindon. The atmosphere within the park is vibrant and the Bowl Stage provides the perfect setting for a wonderful event.

This year’s event takes place on the 20th August at the Town Bowl, Old Town Gardens, and you can expect a fantastic day out for all the family. There will be plenty of acts on the main stage. The event is free but of course donations are always needed to keep the event open, so donate all you can to one of the bucket shakers on the day.

The acts are yet to be officially announced, but as in previous years, you can be certain there will be a good mix of local talent and some fabulous out of town acts as well. Everybody is welcome to this family friendly event so grab some sunscreen, a hat and a sturdy pair of dancing shoes and get yourself to Old Town Gardens for the best free local party of the year.
