Northampton Pride 2024 30 May 2024 (Braunston Parish Council) Local businesses and partners join Northampton Pride 2024

Northampton Town Council (NTC) have been announced as this year’s headline sponsor for the Northampton Pride festival, taking place on Saturday, 13 July, as the event returns for its seventh year bigger and better than ever before!

This year, local firm GXO Logistics will be sponsoring the stall village where a range of products, food and drink will be available to buy on the day from local sellers including Beastly Boutique and Dam Good Dough. St John’s ambulance will also be on hand to provide firs aid support, funded by Northampton BID.

The event, organised by the Northampton Pride Committee and West Northamptonshire Council’s LGBTQ+ and Allies Forum, will feature live performances, walkabout entertainers, stalls, food and much more for people to participate in while celebrating and standing in solidarity with our LGBTQ+ community.

This year’s event will once again take place at the University of Northampton’s Waterside Campus from midday to 6pm, with a programme of entertainment and activities, which last year, saw thousands of people attend from Northamptonshire and surrounding areas, creating an unforgettable buzz within the town.

As well as the organised parade from the University campus through the town centre and back, led by a colourful float, this year Pride committee groups and entertainers are inviting everyone to join in the parade. Keep an eye out for the 'Follow Us to Pride' flags to see where to join the parade behind the official organised groups.

If you are thinking of joining the parade, please let us know by registering to tell us you are coming! Follow @WNC on social media for further Pride announcements.

Cllr David Smith, Cabinet member for Planning and Communities, said: “I am delighted that these local partners have chosen to support this year’s Northampton Pride event and contribute to what is set to be the biggest Pride festival in Northampton yet.

“This event is about people coming together in celebration and to stand in solidarity with our LGBTQ+ community, who are an important part of West Northamptonshire.

“I encourage everyone to save the date and come along to enjoy this celebration of diversity and get involved in the many activities that will be on offer on the day.”

Cllr Jane Birch, Chair of the Community Services Committee at Northampton Town Council, said: “The town council is thrilled to be the lead sponsor of this year’s Northampton Pride Festival and we are really excited to see the event grow year on year.

“We look forward to celebrating with LGBTQ+ communities and everyone is welcome come along and enjoy all the colourful entertainment on offer.”
