Organisers are gearing up for this year's Peterborough Pride which takes place in June.

The event, sponsored by Perkins Engines and Aegon, takes place on June 8, from 1pm till 7pm, at the Green Backyard.

Visitors can enjoy a plethora of local, community and professional acts who will show the city a bright and colourful community. 

"We are thrilled to be able to do Pride as many Pride events throughout the country have had to close due to funding cuts," say organisers.

"We secured a National Lottery Community Fund bid so we thank everyone who plays the National Lottery. 

"We will also be having a march through Peterborough from 12.30 so make sure you are there with your flags and tabards. 

Meet at the Green Backyard at 1pm.
