Croydon PrideFest doubles in size!

Fat Beehive is very proud to have supported London’s second largest LGBT+ Pride event

Croydon PrideFest 2019 was, as promised, bigger, better and more diverse than ever. An estimated 10,000 people headed to Wandle Park on Saturday 13th to join in the celebrations – double last years’ numbers – with around 1,000 people joining the parade itself through the town centre.

 

Fat Beehive is very proud to be a Gold sponsor at such a vibrant and inclusive event – we can confirm that we will be supporting Croydon Pride again next year for an even bigger and better Pride.

Mark Watson, CEO, Fat Beehive

Organisers attributed this year’s success to the quality of the acts, the inclusive nature of the event and improved accessibility. Alongside the main stage, headlined by Croydon’s very own David McAlmont, UK rap star Lady Leshurr, and Soju from Ru Paul’s Drag Race – the event also had a new cabaret tent hosted by Batty Mama. Improved wheelchair access and British Sign Language interpreters helped to ensure that the event could be enjoyed by all.

We are very grateful to our headline sponsors, LV and Fat Beehive who have helped make this years event our biggest, best and most inclusive Pride ever. The response to the town centre parade was fantastically positive and shows that Croydon is London’s most inclusive and welcoming borough.
