One week to go until Milton Keynes Pride Festival

    The much-anticipated event, which will draw in crowds of around 10,000 people, will be taking place in Campbell Park on Saturday 11th September.

    The day-long event is full of music, comedy, food, drink, guided meditation, yoga, and different workshops. 

    The full line-up for the Milton Keynes Pride Festival in Campbell Park was unveiled last month, with Lucy Spraggan and popular drag queen Baga Chipz among those performing.

    Sandy Flaps, a local drag queen that is often at Pink Punters of a weekend, will also be taking to the stage.

    It has also been announced that there will be a trail of rainbows through Central Milton Keynes in support of the Milton Keynes Pride Festival.

    The flags will be along Midsummer Boulevard, from Milton Keynes Central Train Station, through the centre:mk and over the bridge to Campbell Park, with a colour-popping flower rainbow display ready to greet festival-goers at the entrance to MK Pride.

    Businesses across Milton Keynes have also started to decorate their buildings.

    With London Pride cancelled this year due to coronavirus, numbers at Milton Keynes Pride Festival are expected to be high.

    Director Helen Pritchard said: "We had over 10,000 people attend in 2019 so we hope to achieve that again this year.

    "It is possible that we will see a higher amount due to London Pride cancelling and the good transport routes between us and London. Either way we feel extremely lucky and proud that we have managed to raise the funds for this free event particularly, with the current times with COVID.

    "So many Pride Festivals have had to cancel and we are fortunate to be able to go ahead."

    Centre:mk is also providing a pop-up volunteer hub at the centre aimed to train and recruit new volunteers.
