Hull Trains are supporting the event for a third time with their iconic heart being seen across the main stage and the Pride volunteer and team t-shirts.
Yorkshire’s largest free pride event will be running an ‘access all areas’ theme this year, popping up across the city of Hull, due to the temporary closure of its regular Queens Garden base.
Some of the performers and crew will also be travelling courtesy of Hull Trains into Hull Paragon Station which is just a short walk from Humber Street where the parade starts at 12pm noon.
The parade will be heading towards the main stage at Zebedees Yard which will be hosting acts such as the iconic disco group Boney M until 6pm on Saturday 29th July.
Stalls, eateries, stages, and festivities will pop up across the city as part of its Hull takeover. Including events at King Edward Street, Princes Quay, Princes Dock Street, and Saville Street. This year there will also be an Autistic Pride held in the calm area at Hull Truck Theatre allowing everyone to join in with the celebrations.
The free event has grown in popularity over the years now attracting tens of thousands of people to the city to celebrate love, diversity, and inclusivity.
Martijn Gilbert, Managing Director at Hull Trains, said: “We’re proud to be continuing our involvement with Pride in Hull, it puts Hull on the map for all of the right reasons and I’m excited to see the celebrations spread out across the city this year.
“Pride has a hugely positive impact on the local community and aligns perfectly with our own values here at Hull Trains, so we love being a part of the day and championing and supporting inclusivity and diversity.”
Nathan Greenfield at Pride in Hull, added: “Pride in Hull is thrilled that Hull Trains has chosen to be one of our sponsors again. Their ongoing support allows us to host Yorkshire’s largest Pride event and we can’t wait to take the celebrations across the city of Hull this year.”
