Thousands expected to come together for Milton Keynes Pride Festival this weekend

    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.

    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 has also provided a pop-up volunteer hub at the centre aimed to train and recruit new volunteers.
