When is Pride in London 2019?

The Pride in London parade will take place on Saturday 6 July.

The parade is due to begin at 12pm and continue until around 5.30pm, but entertainment on the Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square stages will continue until 8pm.

Bars across Soho will remain open until the early hours of Sunday morning.

What is the Pride in London 2019 parade route?

The Pride in London 2019 parade will begin at midday from Portland Place, which is located in the Marylebone neighbourhood.

It then proceeds down past Oxford Circus, Regent Street, Picadilly Circus, Pall Mall and Trafalgar Square, before ending at Whitehall.

Over a million people watched the parade in 2018, so it might be a good idea to avoid the more touristy areas of Picadilly Circus and Oxford Circus.

Who is performing at Pride in London 2019?

Pride in London will feature performances from a range of well-known faces from pop singers to prominent members of the UK's LGBTQ scene.

X Factor alumni Four of Diamonds and Saara Aalto will perform on the Leicester Square stage, as will 80s icon Sinitta.

Stars of RuPaul's Drag Race will wow the Trafalgar Square stage as Willam, Scarlet Envy and Soju lipsync for their lives.

Billy Porter - Broadway legend, and star of hit US show Pose - will headline the Trafalgar Square stage with a show-stopping performance at 7pm.
