Join the Love Unites Parade!

The Love Unites Parade brings the spirit of Pride to the centre of Reading and provides an opportunity for groups, organisations and individuals to show their support for both Pride and the ongoing campaign for equality.

We are asking you to help us turn the Parade into a spectacle of noise and colour that cannot be missed! Be it drums, whistles, trumpets, music or dance; do whatever you can do to bring the parade to life. This is your opportunity to make our Parade stand out, with a real party atmosphere and for it to be an unforgettable experience, as we start Pride day with style.

Meeting from 10:30am, the Parade will be setting off at 11:15am inside Broad Street Mall we will then exit via the main entrance onto Oxford Road heading towards Metro Bank and cross St Mary’s Butts into Broad Street. We will go all the way down Broad Street and turn left into Market Square and follow the road round to The Forbury where the parade will go into Forbury Gardens. We will then exit Forbury Gardens cross Forbury Road and head under the railway line, right into Napier Road and then along the river to the Pride site entrance.

Anyone can join our parade – if you are a group or organisation, planning on bringing a banner or would like to discuss promoting your business in the Parade please register using the booking form and consider making a donation to help keep it free.

Whoever you are, remember to be as colourful and loud as possible! Let's make this year the best Pride Parade Reading has ever seen!
