LGBTQ+ Pride Event Anna Larner Leicester Pride 2022

Leicester Pride

Leicester Pride is Leicester’s annual Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBTQ+) festival, held at the beginning of September each year.

The event is free to attend and celebrates equality and diversity in our community. Leicester Pride is a family event with entertainment and attractions suitable for all ages. The event starts at 12 noon with a parade through the city centre leading to the festival site on Victoria Park.

The event has been running under the current team since 2009 and has grown from a small event based in the city to a full scale festival at Victoria Park.
