Warwickshire Pride has announced a new parade for 2020 as part of a plan to make this year’s event the biggest and best yet.
The annual festival this year takes place on Saturday 22 August and will once again be held at the Pump Room Gardens in Leamington.
Speaking about the addition of a parade through the town centre, organiser Daniel Browne told CoventryLive: "It's something we've wanted to do it since we started. It will be great to have more of a presence throughout Leamington and we're really encouraging local people and local businesses to get involved and support Warwickshire Pride."
The 2020 festival theme is ‘vision of the future'.
"The last few themes have been about looking back at what's been achieved for the LGBT+ scene. So now we're looking forward and trying to have a conversation to see what's next for our community and what's next for LGBT+ rights."
