Exeter Pride 2013 is getting nearer and has grown to include more than just events on Pride Day, which will be on Saturday 23rd March 2013.
An LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender) festival held annually in the heart of the city, this year Exeter Pride will include other events taking place during the week before Pride Day and end on Sunday 24th March with a Candlelit Vigil.
Now in its fifth successful year and bigger and better than ever, Pride Day is a FREE event, thanks to many sponsors and a hard-working committee of volunteers and trustees who work hard raising funds all year long to ensure that Exeter Pride takes place.
Phonic FM‘s schedule on Pride Day – Saturday 23rd March 2013 – will begin with the Exeter Pride Show from 08:00 to 10:00.
Hosted by Listen Out! on Phonic FM presenters Karen and Martin, expect celebratory music and full news of Pride events. There is a Pride Update on Phonic FM with up-to-the minute news and Pride Day guests at 14:00.
Exeter Pride Day 2013 will include a Rainbow Flag Parade through the city centre, after which there will be plenty of entertainment including music, song and dance plus workshops, drumming, a big debate and so much more! There will be stalls with information and advice and lots of things to see and do – it’s all going to be there for you, so come along and enjoy it with pride!
At Exeter Phoenix, from 2pm, there will be a fun and information packed day.
