On Sunday 24th July 2016, it was rainbow flags ahoy at the second Chesterfield Pride, which took place in Queens Park in the town.
Following on from the success of last year’s inaugural pride event, this year’s was bigger and better, with lots of stalls, a fairground and some top class entertainment, including not only an abundance of local talent, but also their headline act, soul legend Angie Brown, who belted out some classics!
The crowds were queuing to get into the event, which had free entry to all, when the gates opened at 1pm and they partied late on into the evening. With its superb party atmosphere fuelled by a really mixed crowd, it was certainly a great celebration of diversity.

Congratulations to everyone who organised the event and Happy Pride to all those who attended.
