Come join Pagan Pride Parade London 2019 (on 12th May’19)

London’s annual Pagan Pride Parade is the longest running Pagan Pride event in the world! Each year, Pagans of all paths, traditions and faiths, come together to make themselves known to the people of London and express their spirit of pride. With costumes, flags, banners, drums, and song, we march through the streets of London, celebrating Paganism.

Pagan Pride PARADE in streets of London

This is a video mini-documentary filmed at last year’s pagan parade in London (Holborn) – an annual event that is no win its 18th year (previously organised by Jeanette Ellis who ran the Beltane Bash & Halloween festivals). Selina filmed and edited this, and I added the educational captions and annotations – explaining the use of masks, purpose magic etc.
This year’s parade is taking place on Sunday 24th June (in a few days). It assembles at Red Lion Square (Holborn) just outside Conway Hall, at 12noon, and will process through nearby streets, past British Museum, and end at a nearby park, where the fountain is…for a picnic. Being organised by the Atlantis Bookshop in London (oldest occult bookshop in London).

Hope to see pagans add friends there.
