The main action today and tomorrow though is taking place at Grove Park, with a plethora of acts to suit all tastes lined up to keep the bumper crowd entertained.

Stands selling food, drink and official Pride merchandise are also set up to make sure there are plenty of goodies for people to get their hands on throughout the weekend.

And Pride organisers have tried to improve the event's sustainability by reducing the amount of waste created through introducing environmental impact.
