Worthing is set to become a little more fabulous by hosting its first-ever Gay Pride event and it’s happening today!!
The event kicks off this Saturday, July 14 in Denton Gardens at 11am which includes kids’ entertainment and a DOG SHOW!
After that the Pride Parade heads out at 1pm from the Burlington, along the Prom (prom prom, tiddely om pomp pom) and ending up at Splashpoint, where the main event will be in the Beach House grounds with live entertainment, food, drinks, stalls, charity stands and plenty of fun in the sun all hosted by gorgeous drag queens.
And did anyone say afterparty? We did! It’s at Libertine Bar where you can dance yourselves dizzy.
As the first of its kind in Worthing, organisers hope to attract thousands of people to the event, which has a ‘Carnival on the Seaside’ theme, and will be raising money for West Sussex Coastal Mind and All Sorts Youth Project.
Pride committee member Josie Kelly said: “This will be the first time Worthing has hosted a Pride event so it is very exciting and will be a very high profile event which we expect to attract in the region of 3,000 people… bringing everyone together to celebrate the diversity and inclusivity of Worthing’s LGBT community.”
Tickets are a very reasonable £3.50
