Exmouth Pride returns to Manor Gardens on 18th June after a two-year break, bigger and better than ever with live music and entertainment as well as provisions for d/Deaf visitors.

While Covid restrictions have meant that the event couldn’t take place over the last two years, the organisers have made sure to make up for it with this year’s entertainment packed event. With free entry, there will be something for everyone this year, including a dog show, army resilience training and a line up of live music, kicking off at 11 am and presented by Radio Exe’s Ashley Jeary. There is a real focus on local people this year, with a host of local musicians heading up the festival, alongside local support and information groups.

Speaking to reporters, one of the organisers said: “This is Exmouth’s 6th annual Pride and we are delighted to be back. As well as the entertainment, we will be looking at issues including Conversion Therapy, mental wellbeing and more.

“There will be stalls with information on various aspects of the LGBTQAI+ community, including Devon based advocacy group the Intercom Trust and Amnesty International, which campaigns for people imprisoned for their sexuality as well as political prisoners.”

Organisers hope that people from all over East Devon and beyond will join them for the day and have teamed up with the Exmouth Deaf Academy to make sure that the event is as inclusive as possible. Exmouth Pride kicks off at 11 am on Saturday 18th June.
