These include The Marketplace, with stalls where you can shop,  receive support and get information from local and national organisations.

 Workshops include:

• Strictly Same Sex! dancing, Drumming and tackling hate crime.
• The Secret Garden – feeling sporty?  Take part in a penalty shoot-out with the Devon Lions?!
• The Pride Panel – this year’s big debate will be on Equal Marriage, a very current topic!
• The Terrace – Battle of the DJ’s is back!
• The Auditorium – A whole host of live music and performers throughout the afternoon, including tribute acts and local artists, as well as some from further afield.

Later in the evening there will be a club night at Exeter, Phoenix which will take you into the early hours of the morning!

This year there will be a host of Pre-Pride events.
