Swindon & Wiltshire Pride organisers says 10,000 attending throughout the celebration, with 700 taking part in the parade and 300 attending the After Party.

Parade organiser Phoenix Stewart said: “We had a staggering 10,000 people attend the event throughout the day.

“It was such an amazing event and it was so nice to see that many people showing love and support for us.

“The weather could have turned people away, but I think the break we took last year meant that people were so pleased to have it back.

“It was a lot more people than we expected but it was such an electric atmosphere.

“We’ve got a couple of weeks off now before we start planning again. We’ll get feedback from this year, we always try to go bigger and better.

“If we can recreate this year then it will be an amazing achievement.”
