A second pride celebration is set to take place in Kidderminster this year. 

Members of the LGBT community are looking forward to the action-packed event which aims to attract around 1,000 people from across the area. 

The event is being organised by Wyre Forest and Wychavon Pride and will take place on Saturday, June 29 in and around the Viaduct Tavern at Hoobrook. 

The entertainment line-up for the all-day celebration is already fully booked and includes local and national musicians, headlined by experimental alt-rock band Dopamine who hail from Dundee.

Speaking for the organising committee, Ashley Ellesmere said: "We are very excited to be bringing this event to the people of Wyre Forest and the wider region. 

"It promises to be a great day and it will be a sight to see a throng of colourful people enjoying the public space in front of the Viaduct pub as well as on the car park where we will be having the main stage. 

"The other Pride event, which is happening at The Cavalier on July 27, is not competition for us. Both events can be supported, we will both be promoting inclusiveness and celebrating equality, freedom and LGBTQIA+ rights.

"We still have opportunities for event sponsors, whose logos we will feature in our promotional material. There are also spaces left for stall holders – please get in touch."

As well as live music, there will also be a variety of stalls, food and drink, bouncy castles and entertainers meaning there will be something for the whole family to enjoy. 

Admission is free but there will also be paid VIP tickets for additional benefits.
