Spice who will be hosting the main stage, said: “I am so excited to have been asked to be part of Worthing’s first ever Pride – it’s going to be a great event with a real community feel. When meeting the people behind it, the first thing you notice is their absolute passion for Pride, and as they transfer that enthusiasm to the event itself… well, it can only be a success!
“We’ve got some top quality acts to entertain everyone all day and well into the evening. Add to that the dog show in the morning, the parade, and the official after parties and it’s going to be a long day in heels for me… and I can’t wait!”
