There will be two stages at the festival. A main, entertainment stage situated outside in the Selwyn Samuel Centre Gardens and a community stage, situated inside in the main arena of the Centre.


There will be two local Drag Queens to host the two stages. Stage 1 will be hosted by Ruby Slippers and Stage 2 will be hosted by Diana D.


The community arena will feature community groups/organisations, charities, trade unions, sports clubs and institutions like the local rugby team, Llanelli Scarlets. There will also be workshops and displays put on by local talent.

There will also be a holistic therapies room, a sensory room, a music room and a games room.

The Colour Explosion

At 2.30pm, the organisers of Llanelli Pride are planning a ‘colour explosion’ in front of the main stage involving special paint powders in the rainbow colours. People can purchase the paint on the day and we’d love to see as many people as possible get involved in it!

There will be a wealth of speakers on the day too including our MP Nia Griffith and Carolyn Harris MP, deputy leader of Welsh Labour. Several members of the committee are also planning on speaking too.
