join the parade

The heart of any Pride event is its Parade. United, shoulder to shoulder, representing, walking proud, LGBTQIA+ members, allies, friends, family, colleagues. Out, proud, in numbers, waving the flag, making some noise, showing our beautiful colours, being seen, being heard, feeling free. You have to experience it first hand to feel its power.

Support diversity, show solidarity, represent your pledge to equality and inclusion, and have fun! Get in touch to take your place in the almighty Sherborne Pride Parade. 

This year’s Pride Parade theme: Love Lives Here

what happens

Line the streets, march with us, join the parade…

The parade is the heartbeat of Sherborne Pride and a chance to show your support for love, acceptance, and diversity.

Gather your tribe, whether that’s colleagues or friends, sort out a look that sets you apart – could be an elaborate costume or a simple statement tee, and spread joy through Sherborne.

This year’s parade theme is Love Lives Here and we invite you to get creative with representing this theme within the parade – placards, art, banners, chants, it’s open to artistic interpretation!

Oh, and portable speakers to project your personal Pride playlist is highly recommended!
