When does 2024’s London Pride parade start and who is performing?

We’ve only got one day to go until London erupts into glorious colour and venues across the city welcome Pride-goers for talks, activities, music and parties, and even if you haven’t planned your weekend yet, there are plenty of ways to get involved

But the most classic of these has gotta be heading into central to catch some of the Parade. Since the first ever Pride rally back in 1972, the annual celebrations now welcome enormous crowds, and this year 32,000 people are set to walk the route between Hyde Park Corner and Whitehall Place. So, here is everything you need to know about timings and all the brilliant performers you can catch en route.
