Photos from Norwich Pride 2017

Today (Saturday 29th July) Norwich decked itself out in rainbow colours and a year’s supply of face paint to mark its annual Pride celebrations. The mood was buoyant, marking the fiftieth anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality with the LGBT+ community and allies gathering in large numbers in the city centre from early in the day.

The showpiece was the 1pm parade from City Hall to Chapelfield Gardens, with scores of onlookers lining the route. A number of other events also took place, with a stage hosting musical acts and discussion panels, plus both Chapelfield Gardens and the area in front of the Forum seeing a number of stalls and face painting. The city’s gay nightclubs will continue the party into tomorrow morning!

A number of homes and businesses showed their support by flying rainbow flags, including Norwich Castle, which swapped its traditional Union Jack for a multi coloured standard. Members of Castle staff also took part in the parade, alongside representatives from the likes of Aviva, UEA, The National Trust, Amnesty International, several trade unions and the emergency services among many others, joining individuals and various LGBT+ groups.

I took some film photos of the day below, some of which came out better than others:

  1. Great pictures Tony! I particularly love the one of the ladies in purple holding the umbrellas, so adorable. You’re very talented, you truly captures the atmosphere of the day in your shots, well done.
