Pagan Pride 2016!!!!
Gather with us in London, for this year’s Pagan Pride Parade.
Break out your broomsticks, don your floral crowns, hold the heathen hammer high and bang your drums proudly – because we’re taking to the streets to fly the Pagan flag and celebrate the freedom of our faiths.
Drummers, Banners Holders, Parade Giants, Fairies, Floats and Pagans of all stripes, join us for a day of fun and festivities.
We’ll be gathering in Russell Square and then marching our parade through the streets, before returning back to Russell Square for a communal picnic and frivolity.
Gather at Russell Square from 11.30am for the start of the parade at 12 midday.
This event is FREE!
Here’s a video of the one from a few years ago:
Russel Square (5 minutes)
Holborn (10 minutes)
Bring your own food and drink for the picnic or get your food on the day from the Russell Square cafe.
Russell Square is in the heart of Bloomsbury, close to the British Museum. It has a central plaza and water feature, which has become a popular place for Pagans to dance and make merry, year after year.
There is a cafe which is open all year round and expansive lawns and vibrant floral displays.
Hope to see you there.
