When is London Pride 2019?[hhmc]

The annual parade is on Saturday 6 July and gets underway at 12pm from Portland Place.

Last year around a million people attended the event as people from London and beyond participated in the capitals biggest LGBT+ celebration.

There is expected to be more than 300 floats included in the parade with music, dancing and more on show.

What route will it take?[hhmc]

Starting at 12pm, the parade gets underway from Portland Place. It then moves along to Oxford Street, down Regent Street to Piccadilly Circus, Pall Mall and then passes Trafalgar Square – where live performances will be held – before finishing at Whitehall.

With hundreds of thousands expected to attend, places along the route are likely to be extremely busy.

Transport for London is yet to release any travel advice, but areas such as Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Circus are expected to be very congested.

Who is performing at the Pride parade?[hhmc]

There will be more than 100 people performing this year, with a stage set up in Trafalgar Square toward the end of the parade.

Broadway star Billy Porter will headline the gig in London, with plenty of other artists performing beforehand.

Among them are Eurovision and X Factor singer Saara Aalto and RuPauls Drag Race star William.

There will also be a womens stage with a line-up of all female talent, such as Sinitta, Four of Diamonds, Heather Peace, SuRie, Toya Delazy and The Voice finalist Lauren Bannon AKA Lloren.

They will appear alongside some of the acts that competed in Prides Got Talent 2019, including Saachi, Ina Shai and Amber Dee.
