London Pride Parade

The massive annual London Pride Parade will make its way throughout the city’s centre in celebration of LGBTQIA+ communities, diversity and equality. This year is a big deal: 2022 marks the 50th anniversary of Pride in the UK.

It’s free to turn up to show support and watch the parade in all its splendour, as flag bearers and dazzling outfits fill streets. Follow it from Hyde Park via Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square to Whitehall Place, tracing much of the original 1972 route. Organisers expect the biggest crowds around Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square.

Only registered groups are allowed to join the organised parade although you’re welcome to join once it has officially passed and the barriers have been taken down.

The four stages in Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, Golden Square and the Soho Stage on Dean Street will play host to over 100 performers including stars and famous faces from the LGBT+ community. In line with the Proud of Pride pledge, organisers have worked to give prominence to members of all genders, sexualities, and heritages, making space for all parts of London’s rich diversity.

As well as pop suerstar Ava Max, the Trafalgar Square Stage will feature singing legend Emeli Sandé, Eurovision-winning superstar Netta, pop and soul icon Samantha Mumba, and Hollywood actress and Long Hot Summer singer Kat Graham.

Other performers across the stages on Pride day include Tony nominee Justin Vivian Bond, stars of Pride’s recent Proud & Loud concert at the Royal Albert Hall Cat Burns and Ariōn, along with Drag Race Superstars The Vivienne, Lawrence Chaney, Tia Kofi and Victoria Scone,Dreya Mac, Siena Liggins, London Gay Big Band, Mila Jam, Bang Bang Romeo, Jack Hawitt, as well as Cedric Neal and Matt Willis from Kinky Boots in Concert at Drury Lane and the cast from & Juliet.

Making a triumphant return in 2022, the stage in Leicester Square is dedicated to female-identifying, non-binary, and trans artists.

Organisers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
