Nottinghamshire Pride 2020 may have been cancelled due to coronavirus but that won’t stop the county from celebrating.


The annual festival’s organisers have announced that an evening of music and interviews will be streamed live from Nottingham's council house on 25 July, with people able to join in the celebrations online via Nottinghamshire Pride’s social media channels.

The two-hour live-stream (7pm - 9pm) will feature performances by Splendour artist Rob Green, Miss Bowie And The New Killer Stars, and Concrete Rose, as well as interviews with local personalities.


Commenting on the news, Leigh Ellis, chairperson at Nottinghamshire Pride, told NottinghamshireLive: “We were disappointed to cancel our Pride event. However, we are committed to bringing the LGBTQ+ community and its allies together digitally, and we are so excited to be moving Nottinghamshire Pride online and venturing into the online world - a first for us. We have been busy behind the scenes planning everything and we can’t wait to reveal further details over the coming weeks.

“Last year, more than 9,000 people lined the streets of Nottingham to take part in the parade, which marked 50 years since the Stonewall uprising - the moment that sparked the modern-day Pride movement.


"Nottinghamshire Pride is vital, as it brings the LGBTQ+ community together in all its rainbow glory, right into the heart of Nottingham city and is a visible reminder of the contribution that LGBTQ+ people bring, while also giving us a chance to celebrate those who came before us to get us where are today.”
