With “overwhelming interest and support”, planning is well underway for its debut on August 11.

The day event at Jubilee Gardens and the after party at Riverside Bar and Kitchen (RBK) are both free to attend.

Organiser Claire Giannandrea said: “This is a fully inclusive community event; we hope that everyone will want to be involved in our celebration of Pride – not just for LGBT+ but for the pride of everyone in Ely.

“Pride is a celebration of the cultures of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and related identities.
