Basildon Pride Live is bringing Pride to your living room with an afternoon of celebrations.

Broadcasting from the Basildon Sporting Village, there are acts ranging from Drag Queens to UV Puppets. There will even be a few famous faces making an appearance.

Ahead of today’s celebrations, the Pride flag was raised over the council offices, and the Basildon sign has been lit up in rainbow colours for the weekend.

Although the event is far from what was originally planned, it is set to be an incredible extravaganza. The family stage stage is live from 3-5 pm, then the main stage brings entertainment into the night.

Listen to our interview this afternoon with Mayor David Burton-Sampson to discover more about the event, then head to Basildon Pride’s Facebook or YouTube channels to watch the event. You can catch up afterwards too!
