Pride in the Park is a community-style event with all kinds of entertainment. There'll be a cake baking competition, sports events, dog show, music, spoken word and food and drink. All in a relaxed atmosphere that everyone is welcome to be a part of. 

It is the perfect way to relax with friends the day after the Parade.

This year the sports element of Pride in the Park is growing fast. We have a variety of sports teams joining us to take part in demonstrations and mini tournaments on the day.

With the hard pitch being used for tournaments and the soft grass areas being used for demonstrations.


Bake with Pride

We are looking for aspiring amateur bakers to show off their talents at Pride in the Park on Sunday 9th July. Whether your star bake is a rainbow cake or a Victoria sponge, all types of cake are welcome in the competition.

The event will be held at The Tea House Theatre in Vauxhall with celebrity judges and industry experts.

Once you've signed up for the competition, you'll be asked to bring along your cake to Pride in the Park, where it will be judged for appearance and taste. The winning baker will be given a fantastic prize on the main stage.


Spoken Word

This year we have several topics from Sports and Health all the way to Trans Issues and 50 years since decriminalisation. 

Join our hosts and guest speakers whilst they discuss each of the topics for a minimum of 15 minutes followed by questions from the audience.  


We have a lot more fun going on in Pride in the Park, including:-

Drag booth

Drag up with the help of some fabulous London drag queens with all proceeds going to Pride in London.


We'll have a range of food traders, stalls, charities and community groups throughout the Park. We'll publish a listing soon.
