Pride in the Park comes to Crewe this weekend!
Visitors from Cheshire East and beyond are gearing up for this Saturday's vibrant Pride in the Park event.

The colourful and popular celebration takes place from 2pm-8pm on 29 July at Queens Park in Crewe.

Guests will be treated to a host of entertainment and activities in celebration and support of the LGBTQ+ community, with acts such as Confide in Kylie, Britain's Got Talent's 'Bosom Buddies', the Abba twins, Proud Mary's Choir and many other local performers that will take to the stage on the day.

Pride in the Park will also offer lots of family-friendly activities this weekend, including boats for rent on the lake, Prospero Acronym our roaming magician, Fabaroony Facepainting, an inflatable fun zone and crazy golf, whilst popular BBC radio presenter and songwriter Claire Mooney will host the event.

In addition to vibrant performances and entertainment, visitors will also be able to receive information and support from a dedicated health and wellbeing zone for all guests.

Here the public can receive key support and information from local organisations, such as Body Positive, Utopia, Silver Rainbows, the NHS, Rape Support Centre, Healthwatch, Cheshire police, youth support service and many more.

Due to limited parking in the area, visitors are being urged to take advantage of the free shuttle bus service running throughout the day, courtesy of the council's Transport Service Solutions company.

This will transport guests from Crewe train station to Cheshire College South and West before entering Queens Park and will run every 20 minutes, starting from 1pm on the Saturday (29 June).

The final shuttle bus will transport guests out of the park at 8:35pm, following the event's conclusion at 8pm.

On the day, there will also be an extensive range of catering suppliers, leaving visitors to Pride in the Park spoilt for choice for food and drink options. Street food, a Schweppes bar, cocktails bars, Yogo frozen yoghurt stall, doughnut stand and traditional fast-food stands are just some of the vendors on offer.

This year the event will also be highly accessible for disabled visitors, with a 'Mobiloo' pop-up changing-places facility for disabled guests.

Kath O'Dwyer, acting chief executive of Cheshire East Council, said: "The momentum is well and truly building and there's lot to look forward to this Saturday. I can't wait!

"There's some amazing performances, entertainment and activities available on the day for individuals of all ages, so I'm not surprised that we've received such huge interest in our second Pride in the Park event to date."
