The colourful event – which has been held for four years now – celebrated the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) community.

There was real party atmosphere all afternoon and into the evening with top singers, plenty of stalls and a funfair.

Organiser Dan Walker said: “The event went really well.

“There were well over 5,000 people – a real mix of the LGBTQ community, straight friends and families.

“All the acts went down well from all the talented local performers to the international pop stars.

“The event had a fantastic atmosphere and the feedback has been amazing.”
