Wembley Stadium’s iconic arch will light up in rainbow colours this weekend for the first time ever in celebration of Pride in London.

The arch, which is 133 metres tall and 315 meters long, will be joined by the London Eye which will also light up in rainbow colours this weekend as the annual Pride Parade takes over central London on Saturday. This year’s Pride in London is set to be a record-breaker with over 250 community groups, charities, businesses and organisations signed up to take part in the parade – 20% of them new to Pride this year.

Last year’s celebrations attracted over 700,000 visitors to central London who came to London to see the annual Parade and enjoy the celebrations throughout Soho and the West End, with 10,000 people enjoying entertainment in Trafalgar Square’s main stage. It’s anticipated that this year’s figure will be closer to 950,000 – making Pride in London the biggest Pride celebration in the country.

Pride in London is a week-long festival, from 20 to 28 June, celebrating all aspects of the LGBT+ community. Last year more than 750,000 people came to Pride in London and 30,000 people joined the annual Parade, which is one of the city’s biggest one-day events, second only to the London Marathon, and one of the world’s biggest LGBT+ celebrations. This year’s Parade takes place on Saturday 27 June, alongside the festival in Trafalgar Square and activities in Soho.
