Pride in Hull will get the week-long celebrations of LGBT50 started in exuberant style, hosting the first ever UK Pride on the opening Saturday. The event will see a new route for the annual parade, which will finish in Queens Gardens and feature a celebration of 50 years of LGBT icons led by Duckie and made possible with the help of the LGBT community.

The day will be topped off with a headline performance by the legendary Marc Almond, who will be bringing his special brand of musical magic to what is expected to be the liveliest and most colourful Pride festivities the city has ever seen.

Everyone is invited!

The HSAD buikding will be directly behind the main stage and used by the events team. www.prideinhull.co.uk
