Plymouth LGBT Pride Saturday 9th August 2014

Announcing PRIDE in the PARK 2012

We are very proud to announce Plymouth will have a Gay Pride Celebration this year and it will be Plymouth’s first proper outdoor Pride.

PRIDE in the PARK will take place on Saturday 28th July 2012 in the glorious grounds of Devonport Park.

Gay Pride in the Park - Saturday 28th July 2012

The Pavilion Cafe - Devonport Park

Pavilion Cafe

The event will be centred around the new bandstand which will provide the main stage, there will be marquees for health, LGBT History and a Bar Tent. Traditional Devon cream teas will be served around the Sicilian fountain in the quieter rose garden.  There will be a range of hot foods and refreshments on sale from the Pavilion Cafe and hopefully a BBQ too.

There is plenty of space for stalls and will be able to rent out a limited number of gazebos for stall holders. Please contact us if you would like to have a stall at the event.

Cream teas will be served in the Rose Garden

This event has been made possible by the fact that the Heritage  Lottery encourages HLF funded community groups to promote and support each other. Our own Heritage Lottery Funded Pride in Our Past project has linked with the community group ‘The Friends of Devonport Park’ who have received a substantial lottery grant to rebuild the bandstand. One of the 10M marquees available will be used by the Pride in Our Past team for history displays and to conduct further research for the Plymouth LGBT history archive.

Contact us if you would like to volunteer to support this fantastic opportunity, we will need volunteers to help with fund-raising events between now and the 28th July.

On the day we will need volunteer stewards to help set up and decorate the park and of course clear up at the end. We hope to run our own bar so will require volunteers to run it, volunteers will receive a T-shirt, and meal voucher on the day and if we run our own bar a FREE drink too.

  1. About time too – well done for getting this going I will be there who is on stage? Can I bring my dog? Is there anything going on in the evening?

    • We will announce the line up soon, we welcome responsible dog owners and there is drinking water and poop bins available in the park. As for the evening Hawkins Meeting House have a great night planned and we are waiting to hear form Zeros.
