The Pride 2022 event

Peterborough Pride returns this August! We're excited to announce a diverse lineup of LGBTQIA+ artists hosted by The Green Backyard. This year's category is... Flower Power!

To keep Pride exciting and unique to our city, this year’s event will embrace the power of flowers in the Green Backyard. With the glorious (albeit hot!) weather we’ve experienced in the UK recently, it couldn’t be more fitting! Flowers symbolise our community in every way possible – their names, colours, diversity and strength in numbers – every LGBTQIA+ individual is unique to their own! Come join us at The Green Backyard for an afternoon of song, dance and fun… whatever the weather!
