An ‘incredible’ weekend of pride and love was enjoyed by huge crowds in Weston at the weekend.
Weston Pride 'put the town on the map', according to organisers after the two-day festival in Grove Park marked the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.
Proceedings started in style with a march along the seafront and through the High Street before convening in the park for a weekend of live music, dance and celebration.
The event ran across two days with two stages. There were performances from Amelia Lily and Saara Aalto as well as locals The Ratpackers and the Lipinski Brothers.
Organiser, Nigel Briers, said: "It was incredible and it was exactly what I wanted to deliver. Weston Pride has well and truly put Weston on the map. The community came out in force. My friend said to me 'it is just a wrap around feeling of love at the park'.
